That's cool! Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do! Whatever the reason, don't let that discourage you in any way. I'm still in 100% and I know everyone else is also.

Stevereid is also stocking up on supplies but it sounds like his will be in liquid form. :occasion5:

Who made the decision to change the name of the ride and why?

Gerald, I believe there was a conflict with the "Offical, Wounded Warrior" name for raising money and such.

When the first thread started I called the corp number for them, told em what we are doin, gave them all kinds of contact info to try and take out their guys. I never got a call or email or even a cussing out. This name change is for thr better in the long run.

Gerald I got in trouble from the fish gigging event for using Wounded Warrior even though I am a Wounded Warrior and part of that organization and was donating money to them as well. Its best we change the name. And Mike if you only have 10 permits how does that effect the rest of the boats? I have a US Flag, Marine Flag, Army Flag, Coast Guard Flag, Wounded Warriors of SF Flag coming I am working on a Air Force Flag and Navy Flag, these flags will have to be taken care of with the utmost care and respect. Gerald no problem with helping put to rest the retired flags you have. I have a family that may need lodging at a camp in order to come out any takers??? Thanks to Mikes Union hat's off to them! Thank you Sportsmans Gold the FSCA appreciates y'all to. Thanks to everyone again for stepping up. I am getting calls everyday and many about this event and they all cannot wait. Gerald I will work on that bounce house, any volunteers to take it to the camp will be appreciated. Thanks.

The 10 special use permits are to travel beyond east-west trail into areas closed off. They would best be suited to boats that are overnighting and froggin or to anyone towing a broke down boat. They could then straight line to a boat ramp from wherever without worry. Ron you shouldve let me take the heat for the name change I got broad shoulders, and dont want to risk your name or reputation. I also cant thank everyone enough still! Maybe next yr I can form a legit charity and all these issues will be easier to resolve, we could also have cash exchange hands then. I just wasnt prepared for this turnout this yr!

Gerald its about the money, there is a lot of people making big money off of the National Wounded Warrior program. All you have to do is watch them on TV. It is a lot of good people doing good things, but it has gotten to big for something like this getting in their way without them getting a cut. They are thinking its a fund raising without their Corporation being involved. We can start our own and can call it whatever you want to, but someone better get some legal Advice if any funds are involved.

We have never asked anyone for $ for that reason. Our friends are giving us the food for lunch. We never asked the public for anything but boats, thats what I have pushed from the start. We are not fundraising just saying thank you to the soldiers.

Listen y'all no legal advise needed I am a Wounded Warrior Project Alumni all we need to do is just give it another simple name. Gerald your right brother we haven't asked for a penny for this event other than what our airboat community is doing with volunteering their time and boats for this event and to y'all I say thank you!!! Gerald thank you for the lodging info, I will contact the Boars Nest if it is definite they want to stay overnight. Again we are gonna make this an awesome event for all.
