Camp and Brew
has come and gone...This third one was successful in ways that matter, like
raising over $1,600.00 for
in some ways that really donít, like 4 kegs of brew consumed.
75 people filled out the Guest Register, we have heard from many who didnít
even know we HAD one. Estimates range from 90 to over 150 actual
visitors to the camp site.
asked if taking this deal on the road to other IRL races is possible...Well,
that question might better be asked of my wifeís divorce attorney, as
funding might not allow that. (Iím kidding of course...Her attorney hasnít
got a clue!!!)
This year we
all got a little wet, but as people were going into the track that morning,
the popular refrain was, ďWell, the radio stations havenít mentioned a
window for the raceĒ but
Camp and Brew
accurately predicted more of a ĎDoggie Doorí of opportunity and after
swinging a few times in each direction, the race was official. The
tornadoes and monsoons that came on the heals of Riceís win, were not too
welcome as Camp
and Brew members were frantically looking for Wynona Judd to
latch onto in case of a twister!
As Momís couch
fades into memory, we already have discussed what will be different next
year...Back by popular demand will be the Porta-Pottie,
Chez Bubba and
sidewalk chalk. Missing, we hope, will be any hint of rain.
Weíll be there
in 2005 and again invite you all to join us. The beer will flow and we
can only trust in God that Mackie and his merry band of bead seeking women
will also grace us with their presence.
