First off I know I tried to thank everyone who stopped by the booth at the event personally, but there are a few people I would like to thank publicly as well (these are in no particular order):

W.E.ROCK-Not only did you donate the booth space, but you also gave me your last canopy, table and chairs. I even heard a rumor that you had to ourchase a new canopy for your own booth because of it, so I thank you very much for that. Not to mention that you passed out flyers not only at the front gate but also at your booth, so thanks Big, Lil,Josh, and the entire staff.

Wickedmag.com-Thanks for helping support me getting there and giving the coverage that you do for the family.

Jordan-The local Jeeper I knew there that allowed me to have vendors send product to his house so I did not have to deal with it on the plane, and thanks to his fiance' for giving up her birthday weekend so that Jordan could help me at the booth.

Brian at Ultimate-Air-For donating the 10# Co2 tank kit, it was what really helped to draw people to the booth.

Dan at BTF-For getting me the banners in time for the event.

12voltguy.com-For the gift certificate.

Matt (shopteach)-For the schooljeep raffle tickets, I did not give them all away yet, but will be holding another online raffle for them in a few weeks. (Semper Fi).

Kelly from 4Wheel Drive Hardware-For offering to cover the costs of Zach and Ambers room and making all the arrangements for that. Timing was just not on Zach's side with being admitted to the hospital the day before.

Suerlift OffRoad Park-For the big box of shirts and hats, there were so many I ended up bringing a bunch home with me, but don't worry they will get used in other giveaways/raffle over the next few months.

Javiers Gulf Coast Crawl Shop-Thanks for jumping in and offering up the t-shirt, the woman was very happy to receive it and it was great hanging out with you at your booth, hopefully we can do something else in the future together.

Tom with Crawl Magazine-Most of you know I was headed out there last minute with a less than shoestring budget, Tom was gracious enough to let me crash on his hotel room floor and would not even let me help him out with the costs, thanks alot it was great really getting to know you as well my friend.

Angie at Spring Creek OffRoad Park-Angie was GREAT, she even got me one of the coveted neon green staff shirts :grinpimp:. Angie is also going to do additional fundraisers at the park in the future, so I will be working with her on that as they finish up their Mud Bog Series, so that is great.

And last but far from least Dustin Webster-Dustin did a GREAT job announcing the event and the Zach fundraiser, it was not over the top at all so I did not get the feeling that people were put off by it. Thanks for taking the time do do some interviews with me as well (I hope I did not sound too dorky or anything as obviously public speaking is not my forte). I also wanted to thank you, Becca, Dallas, Mikey and the entire Red Bull team for taking the chance to work with me 18 months ago or so when we originally teamed up. You guys are the best and I value the friendship we have grown over time.

Okay enough with the mushy stuff.

We raised $850 at the Grand Nationals that will go directly to the family. I will update this post tonight when I get home with a list of all the winners (left it at the house this mornig), but I wanted to send the thank you's out sooner than later. I will also post up some pix of the booth and such when I get them off the camera.

Thanks again to EVERYONE that stopped by the booth wether to donate or just to send good wishes, it is much appreciated believe me.

Damn I totally spaced that.

Just send them to me and I will get addresses and ship them out myself.

Just let me know what you are planning to send me so I know how many winners to pick from GN's (I have all the entry cards still).

Thanks, sorry I spaced it on you.

Cool, if you could get me her email that would be great, either PM here or on MC, I did not get her contact info.

Speaking of contact info, there were 3 others I can not seem to find their info:
1. Photographer that got some pix of the booth and is a cancer survivor himself.
2. The guy I was talking with from PSC, with the Blazer on Rocks w/ rear steer.
3. The family that bought Shane's buggy.

If you guys could please email me your cobtact info I would greatly appreciate it, I would like to keep in touch and follow up on the things we discussed.

Thanks.

You're the bomb! But you weren't supposed to tell anyone about the shirt....LOL
J/K...get with me on the fund raising stuff. Our Next event will be Oct 13, & then the finals will be in November, as far as I know.

I wanted to personally thank everyone for their generosity.

I also want to say to all the competitors, vendors & everyone involved in making this event happen that Spring Creek Off Road appreciates YOU! Without everyone, the show wouldn't have been the success that it was. THANKS GUYS!!!!!!!!!

Raffle tickets

Hey Cue,

This is Ron Dennis, winner of the School Jeep tickets at the WEROCK Grand National event. Please donate my tickets to Zach and/or his family. I'd rather give them a chance at the Jeep. I have already purchased several tickets from Matt (Shoptech) so I am already in the drawing.

It's the least I can do for a future four wheeler! I want him to grow up to enjoy the sport I love so much. :D

If you have any question please contact me.
