We need to jumpstart the donations to Derek's ride. As you know, we have given away gear every year in a contest to help Derek and this year we want to exceed his goal and make him the largest fundraiser for this event! So we need your help.
Any Lounge Member residing in the US, making a donation of $50.00 minimum beginning today will be entered in a contest to win a Home Theater Give-A-Way Package.
The prize will include a Sherbourn PT7030 processor and PA7-150 amplfier.
My forum brethren came thru in amazing form last weekend, raising over $3,000.00 in ONE DAY! Amazing! Well, a new weekend is upon us, so I am reaching out to those of you on the fence. Please consider making a small donation as you will be making a very direct impact on my daughters life and those like her who suffer from diabetes.
Tour de Cure prep news update: I'm doing a "little" 6 hour mountain bike race this weekend in preparation for the nearly 12 hours I will be putting in on my road bike during the Tour de Cure. The MTB race was rescheduled from last weekend due to weather, but it's ON now! Will I survive??? Stay tuned...
In the meantime, jump over that fence and drop a few bucks into the American Diabetes Association bucket.
By the way, I'm all healed up from my "little" tumble last year and as you can see, I didn't learn my lesson. Get busy living or get busy dying...

Thank you very much "mopman!" I sincerely appreciate it!
Update: Well, I survived my first ever 6 hour mountain bike endurance race! It was pretty dang difficult I must say, but I didn't give up! I thought a lot of what my daughter goes thru on a daily basis and figured what I was doing was nothing compared with that, so I kept on pedaling and only took 3 very short 1 min. pit stops for the entire race. Yes, I am SOOOOOOR today and am still lying here in bed contemplating mowing the yard and dealing with more pollen.
Anyway, here are a couple of pics from yesterdays race. I consider it a really good training ride for the nearly 12 hours I'll be on my bike for the Tour de Cure next month.
Challenge: Can you guys top the amazing donations you made on last Saturday???
