    On a serious note...thanks y'all!

    YOSC just let me know the tally for the collection ya'll did in my fathers memory. Nice sum of cash for the little yard apes over at the orphanage, bettern' flowers thats for sure.

    Just a brief note as to why we chose Elida Home....

    My great grandmother was a resident of that orphanage(dad's side, my grandmother is from California). She spent her formative years at Elida, and they treated her very well. Enough so that she was able to secure herself a job and raise her younger brothers and sisters. I never met her husband, but I did get to know "Granny Bonnie" as we all called her. Fact is, I'm living in her old house right now. She was a powerful old lady, had eyes that bored right through ya. She always prattled on about how nice a place Elida was and is, so any chance we get we toss some cashola towards em. Its loosely Christian based, but not a "camp" by any means, the children are free to worship as they please. I've taught a few small-bore classes over there, and my dad taught archery(he was excellent with a bow, I was always better with a rifle). Its open, and kids are allowed max freedom, they are there by choice, not state funded as far as I know. Kinda an extened stay homeless shelter for kids. Most folks that "graduate" from Elida go back and volunteer, wonderful place.


    So again. SG rocks, plain and simple. Fun place to surf and a collection of great folks. THANKS Y'ALL!

    Well I suppose an explanation is in order. It was not meant as a slight of the members to not post about this in the General Forum.
    We had little time to get a collection going for flowers. YSOC had connections but we needed to get our collective behinds in gear. As it was, we still missed getting flowers and opted to send what was collected in the name of Speedguide to a charity of Dan's choice.

    No hard feelings anyone. And since it's a charity we did send to..your all still welcome to contribute.

    YeOldStoneCat has offered to donate his services again for such a worthwhile endeavor. So dig deep and send him your donations.

    Hopefully you good members will understand why this wasn't in the open in the first place. No ill will was intended.

    brembo, my friend, there is no harm done.. It's still an open invitation to contribute if anyone so desires.
