FlamingoTina here from Panama City. Mike and I sold raffle tickets at First Friday in downtown Panama City on Friday the 1st of August. We made $998.00 on the Booze Basket! All for the Legacy Scholarship Fund. Our Rider's group helped sell tickets and sign up new members. Every month we rent a space at this community event to bring attention to how much our American Legion does in the community.

Joe and Carol Volpi manned the booth for a while and Butch Schumaker sold over $600.00 of the tickets for us. We have a great group here in PC.

Last month we cooked three meals at Legion Post 356. Sure wish the kitchen was bigger! We have cooked meals, sold raffle tickets, and gotten Corporate Sponsorships - still don't have a final total but will have our check with us to deliver to Phoenix.

Are you ready to ride? We leave for Indanapolis on Thursday the 14th to arrive on the 16th. Can't wait to see old friends. I was going through pictures from the last 2 Legacy rides and what a time we have had!

I'll be making posts from on the road - next stop - Northern Tennessee on the way to Indy!

Signing off,

Flamingo Tina

You two enjoy your ride and come home safely. There'll be some cold ones waiting at this end of the line for you. In the meantime, we'll be monitoring your progress. Ride Safe and keep the shiny side up.

Tina & Mike! We love you and are very proud of you for making this trip. We miss you on more levels than I can possibly go into. Last night, during our meeting, Chaplain Cahill offered a special prayer for your continued safety --Sorry, he thought it'd be presumptious to ask for clear skies. We all had a great laugh when Les shared the story about your laminated maps. As Tina would say, "TOO FUNNY!" Remember to keep the shiny side up and the rubber down! Mike, NO SHORTCUTS this year. If not sooner, we'll see you at the b'day party. Vaya con dios! RodHog
