    Thank you!

    AND WE ARE DONE! Unless another $100 pops up very soon I'm closing this out at 7 wagons, so I have time to collect the money.

    A HUGE thank you to everyone who has donated for this great cause!

    Ya beat me to it! This is such a great cause, I figured why not.


    I'll put another $25 towards an 8th wagon if anyone else can help complete it by tonight (so we can get Ralph the money).


    And a thought about what gets written on the plaque - if we don't have enough room for names or initials, put the club name (and website URL?), we could set up a special page on the website listing all the names of poeple who contributed.

    I have another $10 for #8!
    Not a shred of evidence exists in favor of the idea that life is serious.

    Well, alright then... Guess I have another $10 on #8. So, we're already $45 towards it. Can we get the rest today??

    Actually, Ralph, since you're coordinating this (and have already pledged $40 or $50), I wasn't expecting you to contribute to this one too, but if you can...

    I rarely think of motorcycles without a little yearning. They are about moving, and humans, I think, yearn to move its in our cells, in our desires. We quiet our babies with cyclic movement, and we quiet ourselves by going.

    We have an 8th wagon partially pledged to ($45 so far). How much are you willing to contribute towards it. We're trying to get it done for tonight so we can get Ralph the money (at Brecks).

    I'd do more if I could, but I'll bring it up to $65.00

    Im here now. Hey Ralph, my pleasure and hey what the heck, 7 is my lucky number.

    All for a good cause, one that is close to my family.

    Ok, should have the final number (8 for sure, possibly a 9th) this evening, and I have either received all funds or have them accounted for (i.e. I know when I'm getting them), so I will be driving to RMHD tomorrow morning to write them a check and fill out the inscriptions for the tags.

    I am amazed at the generosity from this, we have all definitely made some kids' lives better this holiday season.

    Thanks Barn!

    I think also of special note, is that a bunch of sportbikers are about to give a Harley dealership $800. That just seems ironic to me.

    Correction... We're now giving $900 to a Harley dealership!

    Thank you to our favorite Wednesday night hangout, Breckenridge Brewery, for contributing another $100 for this great cause!

    That is really cool of Breck's to do that.



    Of course we are all heading over there to give it right back after the rally.

    I wrote RMHD the check for $900 this afternoon and filled out the inscription tags, so we are good to go!

    If anyone would like a receipt for tax/other purposes for your donation to this, please let me know, I'll be happy to make you one.
