Ice Bowl $5,700 Total
« on: February 11, 2011, 09:21:53 PM »
I put this here for hopefully for more attention.
So far with the tournaments that have turned in their donations, we're 3rd, behind Tulsa, who raised $5,643.00 & had 215 players. It would be a disappointment not to get another $45.00 & get ahead of Tulsa. I realize I may be the only one disappointed. I'm going to the Mission Monday at 1:00 pm so if I can meet you, let me know.

Obviously, no one jumped in this boat. Danny, my son & I kicked in the $50.00
I have one more donation, $100.00, if that doesn't happen I'll cover it.
We will be 2nd on the current list of 68. I think last year there were over 225 events. It's unlikely we'll remain 2nd, but I think the top 10. The club that raised $14766.00 had a sponsor that matched their donations. The club in Tulsa had 215 players & raised $5,643.00.
It's sad I can't communicate the good we're doing for disc golf & an ageless charity, Morninf Star Mission. Like I mentioned  to Ray Hill it's microvision relative to disc golfers. You have no idea what the community thinks of disc golf people. Does lower than whale shit give you some idea? I rub shouldres with many that don't play disc golf, look at the sponsor & check out what names you're familiar with. Local tournaments don't relate to the community. Giving to the community relates.
It appears it's going to be a flat year for me & my energy is going to Channahon.
I'm exhausted & this note may relate to that. I have around 450 hours of effort & can only guess at the gasoline costs.
Enough, Fox Valley is 5th on the list, way to to go people. Blaine Schepp is president of that club & gave generously to our fund raiser.
One thought has processed another.
I love you guys. Not because it's Valentimes Day.

Words can't describe your work ethic, what you do and have done are amazing. URWATUR  (ONE OF A KIND). Thanks Frank.


p.s. If we could only clone you so we could have around 20 Franks around, now that would be cool. We could make all your clones democrats, wouldn't that be funny.

Thanks for the Kudos Flash! 99% are clueless of the effort. You're acknowledgement is precious along with Jr's.
My work ethics are Conservative values. That's what built America. Nothing free, someone pays for it. I take that back, the Channahon Park district gets it for free.
You want to clone 20 liberals like me? You're going to need a least one Conservative, that way one of the 19 can hand him the shovel & give him orders.
People like you warm my heart! Can't leave out Shawn Harmon!

One other thing, I'm not quite through. Along with the thank you letter, I'm enclosing a picture of the sponsor sign, with the thank you letter. If the offer of driving me around is still good, I'll take you up on that.

The updated total is $5,700.  Gary called me today to tell me he has another $48.00 from the tournament discs. I'll kick in the $2.00 Although the high end clubs haven't reported, when they do, we're fourth. if your interested, the site.
