Dear Friends and fans on the Boating toys for tots tour.
I want to thank each and every one of you who came out to the tour. Your love and generosity was able to fill a 20 foot flat bed trailer to overflowing . The toys and gifts that you brought to the tour were able bring joy to hundreds of kids. THAT IS MAGIC !!
With the Boating Toys for Tots Tour looking to improve with each event. W e feel like we hove hit on the right formula but as in all things there is always room for improvement. If you have any suggestions or things that you would like to see at the boating toys for tots tour please let me know..
An upcoming change for next year is a change in date . For Next year the Boating Toys For Tots Tour will be the NOV 17 weekend. That is the weekend before thanks giving and the weekend after the Key West Offshore event, We are looking to maybe catch some of the Key West participants on there way back North.. For less than what it cost to be in Key West a day one could stay in Palatka a week..May be some of those guys have spent that spent those mega bucks in the keys on $300+ per night room and outrageous docking fees and several hundreds for poker run registration. Might enjoy a break from being raked over the coals . The TFT enjoys having fair pricing as a mainstay of our event , $75 for a room with free docking reasonable prices for food and drink ., And the event registration price is about the price of a T-shirt and you get a T-shirt a full weekend of activity on the water and on land with two live band parties and some nice prizes. Next year There will be more and again all at the price of a T-shirt.
My goal is to have the Boating Toys for Tots Tour be a “ Must come to event” “ for any and every good heated person in boating . That all persons feel welcome at the TFT tour no matter is you in a1.2 million dollar offshore rig or $500 dollar rebuild that you and your brother in law redone in the back yard , you are special be cause you came with a gift for someone to share your generosity and care with a child.
Ask anyone who has come on the Toys tour and they will all tell you the same that it is a great event whose focus on winning ,is winning for the kids. If you want a great poker hand and a big cash prize go to Atlantic City or Las Vegas . Knowing that you have made a child’s holidays brighter with your gifts surely outshines that poker hand cash prize. The joy you bring to a child is MAGIC . I personal guarantee that when you come to the Boating Toys for Tots tour you will have a sensational time.
Best of wishes and best of luck to all , and we hope to see you at the 2012 ,@013 , 2014, 2015..... 3011 Boating toys for Tots Tour .
If you have any questions or want further information or would like to be a sponsor or vendor or just want to talk boat give me a call or E-mail raceboatrus@aol.com. Phone 407 760 3481
