I don't see anything wrong with setting it up this year. You have 40 days now if you set it up to the 18th. I'm sure no one is going to be put out if we do and while your at it go ahead and put it on the Calender for next year and see what happens. You can always change it if needed.

Hi Dave; no offence intended to you nor KRVSA. I hold the upmost respect for you and KRVSA hence we ALL work toward the same goal. I didn't know that you had posted an event on that day. :oops: My posting was to show my disappointment at local level. Our brothers and sisters lost arms, legs, mentality (and lives) only to return home to be shunned by the very government that sent them over seas to begin with. HOW SOON WE FORGET. The majority of Americans think that the TOWERS was an isolated incident and that it will never happen again. As long as they live in A/C and collect welfare that we REAL people provide at no cost to them,--- :oops: :oops: :oops: There I go, off the deep end again. 8) We can only try our best, some of us could do better. Thank YOU to all that CAN and do care.
--- OOOPPPSSSS!!!! This was a reply to Dave on PM but I am not the best on this computer sexy game thing but at least I was able to copy and post here in case it will CMA on another front. :lol: :lol: :lol:

No warrior left behind sent out 60 invites to members. They figure 20 for sure riders but could be 35 like last year. Please ask all your friends with boats to head out!!! From the responses ive gotten sounds like we are gonna be short a few boats.

Gary S and I are talking about frogging for the Vets event with an overnight stay at Camp Old Glory. maybe a few others will join in like Redeye, he has those new fangled bi-nockular eyes that can see hairs on a fly's but on the moon (after he has had a few adult drinks). :lol: :lol: :lol:

I have a question. What about if i have a wounded warrior that works with me in the fire department. Can he be my rider on my boat? He has never been on an airboat in the everglades. Pls let me know. Thanks. Don't know if I have to sign him up somewhere.

Swampninja that is the exact type of person i had in mind! this isnt a stanard event. Its a nice day for these guys to relax and tour and bs with family and friends. The only "sign up" is the waiver all riders sign a waiver. Please dont make this too serious lol

I brought a friend from work last year that was a Viet Nam vet. I really enjoyed it. The waiver helps protect you and Gerald at the camp from legal matters.
