Actually we are not meeting at camp Holly. We are going to meet at the Brevard County Airboat Association which is on the other side of the bridge from Camp Holly. Not sure if Camp Holly can handle all the boats and parking plus it costs $3.00 per boat to launch where at the association it is free. it is off of Sweetwater Rd. PM me for more information.

Thanks all and thanks Skeeter for doing that as well. Yes, the more people we have there the more money it is going to make for Glenn. From what I understand his dad has been moved to a much better facility but he needs alot of therapy. He is still going to have to retain an attorney so he can get guardianship of his dad so all of his stuff and his dads stuff end up with the state and we all know that can happen. I think he is looking into some sort of legal action against the previous nursing home as well. So every little bit will help. As of right now I have $1825 in my hands. I am going to be sending this to glenn in the next day or two because it all just cleared the bank. So thanks to all so far.

Yes it is still on. I am not sure who all is coming but all are welcome. I have offered my yard to Stan and country to park here with their boats and their campers. I have 3 twin beds and a double bed on the couch that all are welcome to. Hell if you want to camp out in the yard I am fine with that as well. We have parking here. Also if there are some that will be here Saturday we would be happy to go out riding that day after Chris gets out of work at 1 so. Just let me know.

Hey there Randy. There are a few close to I95 and they have had plenty of people stay there with airboats. There is the Holiday Inn, Budget Inn, Days Inn, Howard Johnsons, and York Inn.
But if you want to save your money and stay with us you are more than welcome. If you don't mind sleeping in a room with nascar.

Dakota, you and Chris are a trip :D . One of these days 215 people are going to show up on your doorstep lookin' for a place to sleep, and the really cool part is .... you'll find room for them.

You guys are awesome.

You are exactly right Ken. We can hold about that many as long as we all make pallets in the floor.
Skeeter I think you mean Sunday morning at 10. LOL

This is one of the kind of things I miss out on over here and one of the things I love about this forum. Just plain folks helping other folks in a very direct manner.

I have to confess to ignorance as to HOW a poker run works and HOW it makes money for a cause. Any cause not just this one or event. Would someone try to explain it or educate me, I may not be the only one that doesnt know.

Thanks folks

A poker Run draws people out to a ride ,its alot of fun.You buy hands for $20.00 as many as you want.There is usally 4 to 6 stops depending on what poker game you are playing.And you draw a card at every stop getting the last card at starting point, this way everyone stays together or gets back at the same time.Then normally the winner splits the pot.But this time we are getting donations from community biusnesses for the best hand ,so we can give all monies earned to Pete's family.And of course a gator fry for lunch.

Pete's son Glenn called me today to let me know that he has a couple people who are friends of the family coming up here for the ride. He also said that a couple of the Broward County club members said they were coming here as well. So I thought I would update all those who are bringing something to eat.

I know Gatorchaser has got some gator meat, Safari Rick is bringing some shrimp. As far as anything else I am not too sure about so please post if you are bringing something and what you are bringing. Looks like we are going to have a good crowd here.

I have hundreds of pounds of Gator meat. I will donate as much that is needed for the ride. I will also supply the breading. Bigdaddy hooked me up and it's the best breading. If I can't make it I will get it to Skeeter or someone heading that way. Try to get a head count so I'll know how much is needed.

All right all. We need a head count. I know here we have 2 people and 2 boats each with one person.

Also Glenn has 2 boats coming with one person each.

Thank you Gator. Give me a call if you cannot make it and maybe I can meet you if need be. My cell phone is 863-3149.
