This story sorta got lost in the shuffle, but thanks for posting it, Anthony. It is always nice to see events like this take place, even in a down economy, we still have to help out each other when we can.

I did it last year and I am going to do it this year. It was a really good time and it looks like they got many of the problems out from last year by not putting it on later in the season (so it closed early), on a Sunday, and during the High School Cheerleading Compettion. They also didn't have too many people last year which is a real shame!
