*** THE BEBES *** Round n Round - an EPIC Coasting 4 Kids TR

Postby The Bebes » Sat Aug 25, 2012 12:44 am

SUNDAY June, 10, 2012
Coasting for Kids Marathon event at Knott's Theme Park
Benefit for Give Kids the World Village


The charity event at Knott's to benefit Give Kids the World Village was a wonderful experience. We (everybody involved) were able to raise a lot of money to help bring some happiness to terminally ill children.

Kara, representing the Village, was enthusiastic and grateful. Jennifer and the rest of the Knott's staff were exceptional and put on a great event. There were some nice surprises like fresh baked cookies for lunch, and they were available until the end of the event. And Jennifer even personally brought bottled waters to the loading station. We were able to keep our personal belongings in the ride op station. Class Acts!!!

DISCLAIMER:
The following Photo Trip Report, Round n Round, is a work of fiction based on the premise of riding the same coaster over and over and over. In no way should any portion of the report be viewed as a negative connotation regarding the Coasting for Kids event, Give Kids the World Village, Knott's Theme Park, or Theme Park Review. Enjoy!!!!

Always a pleasure reading these!! Top of the line production as always!


Full of wins with LOTS of Big Mike shout outs, the vision of Lady Bebe making love, and David picking a great song in Mr. Brightside to sing..... as well as seeing a whole bunch of cool people that I know at the event, and seeing Spears is always an absolute delight!


Best of all though, Mr. Bebe's genious wit and ability to put together these masterpieces!!!


With the slight excepton that you could not find a way to insert that magnificent Lady Bebe bikini photo she posted on Facebook the other day somehow into the story, this was almost perfect :)


Thanks for the great laughs, but most of all, thanks for the great friendship! Hope to see that whole wonderful gang again very soon!


Peace, Big Mike

Wow, reading this trip report was a great way to start the day. I had horrible dreams last night (no joking) and this really broke me out of my funk.

Thanks for posting it, It is quite clear that a lot of planning and humor went into this and it worked.

Is there a story explaining why David and Spears call their place "the Robot Warehouse"?

Another great TR, BTW. I love Danielle's increasingly frustrated expressions and how David has the same goofy one with or without SuperShawn.

I've really got to hand it to you guys for doing the Coasting for Kids thing. On Jaguar. Jaguar, the perfect blend of pointlessness and uncomfortable seating. I would have shot myself in the head 15 minutes into the first day.

Brilliant!!!

Also fitting that there were 420 views when I was reading it. I think it made it a little easier. ;)

Such an awesomely fun day. We should do it again next year!!!
