I have lots of pics that I will upload later. That was the first time I a have been on that dock when it was frozen. Talk about slick! I donated a big bag of toys and buzzurd bill is delivering them for me. Thanks bill! They are a great bunch of guys and the world is a better place because of them. Maybe next year I will make the run, I will atleast donate. It was good to put some faces with names! Hope they have a safe trip and stay dry and warm.

Pics will come later.

It will be a

run to say the least, but with lots of memories made for years to come to remember a special

helping some deserving children.

I'll shut up and post some more pictures..

Hog,
Thanks for posting the spot link. Has been kind of like watching Santa Claus being tracked on the TV when I was a kid:biggrin:
Sure looks like they are on schedule.

Sorry Capt C, it was starting to rain and the girls were getting rained on so we shoved off, hope you made it ok. I owe the guy in the Ranger a dock line rope, cant remember his name, anyone? Thanks for the pics! The SPOT tracked us good huh?

This was was on of the most fun things I have ever done. The weather Saturday was cold but very beautiful and afforded us a great ride to POC. This was my first Toy Run and sure will not be my last. Met some great people and got to listen to some entertaining radio chatter on the way there and back. The parade was a truly fun event until our power inverter for the lights blew out so we just turned on the spreader lights and we kept on throwing the candy!

I would like to say thanks to all of you who organized and ran the event. I would encourage others who have not participated in the past to join in. It is well worth the time and money spent!

SE, great to meet you and your wife! I'm gonna need a test ride on your boat just to be sure I like it as much as I think I do! :smile:

This was our first Toy Run and it was a blast! Met lots of great folks and really enjoyed the chilly ride yesterday and the windy one today. Luckily we ran back early enough this morning that we missed the rain!

I'll do my best to identify a couple of the numbered pics up above and then post a few of my own.

If you are thinking of doing this next year, I highly recommend it!

#4 - Team Marsh
#6 - Me and BigWill right after we gave Slightly Dangerous a jump (cold dead batteries)
#7 - Slightly Dangerous (and his awesome lighted Toy Run sign)
#8 - Buzzard Bill and his Panga in the middle
