  1. I have made MANY out of the way trips to get a credit. My rule, however, is that a coaster has to be considered an "adult" coaster for me to go out my way to ride it. In other words, I will not go out of my way to get to a park that only has a kiddie coaster, but I will go out of my way to go to a park that has an adult coaster and then ride the kiddie coaster while I am there for the credit. As far as what constitutes an adult coaster, I base that on the size of the coaster and the height requirements for the coaster. I use my own personal discretion, and that works for me. That doesn't mean that you should follow the same guidelines.

     

    As far as counting clones is concerned, I count every coaster individually, even if it is a clone. Every park setting provides a unique experience for every ride, and identical twins are in fact two different people, so I count coaster clones as two separate and unique rides. I will not count a ride that has been moved to another park if I already rode it in it's original location. And, I do not count coasters that have gotten new, different trains or that have had slight modifications made to the ride experiences. Once again, just my way of doing things.

     

    In my opinion, counting coasters is really a personal thing. It should not be a contest, and it should not be a cause for argument among coaster enthusiasts. Do it however you want to. Whatever makes you happy. Just make sure that you are (Like Robb says!) HAVING FUN!

  2. We still have ZERO participants at Worlds of Fun or Michigan's Adventure.....If you live in the vicinity of either of these parks and want to participate in Coasting for Kids, please join up with Team TPR today!! Thanks!

     

    If anyone close to Worlds Of Fun or Michigan's Adventure wants to participate, but you cannot afford the registration fee or you think that you might not be able to meet the minimum $75 fundraising goal, I can help you with that!! I will sponsor up to two Team TPR participants at either or both of these parks! I will cover your registration fee and get you up to the $75 minimum. Private message me if you're interested!

  3. Awesome to see you back for another year, Jason!! Those of us with Team TPR who coordinate our efforts are definitely thrilled to see someone like you, who is always so dedicated to this wonderful cause. Your amazing dedication to fundraising all year long is simply remarkable! Thank you for all that you do to help make this event so successful each and every year. Along with your fundraising, you are also very generous with donations to other Team TPR members. Again, a huge THANKS for that as well! I don't have quite as much money to spread around this year, but I have sent you a donation of $35 in honor of your generosity, hard work, and support!!

     

    Thanks!

    Thank you, Nick, for the kind words and for the donation. Give Kids The World has become a very special place to me thanks to my involvement with Coasting For Kids. Raising some funds is the least I can do for such a wonderful organization. I know how I feel every time I walk into an amusement park and to be able to help give a deserving child that same feeling, well, that makes me feel even better than when I go to a park! GKTW is truly a miraculous place. I am honored to be associated with them.

  4. I was bumped out of first place at Kings Dominion, but that really doesn't make me sad at all! In fact, I am extremely happy that someone else raised so much money for Give Kids The World! Plus, that person really didn't beat my total since I actually donated $1,765 of the money that I raised to other Team TPR participants. So, I actually raised $11,905! We should all be extremely pleased with what we have accomplished over the past few months! The difference that our money will make to the children who will benefit from it means so much more than who raised the most. TPR has nothing to be disappointed about. You are all rock stars!!

  5. I would like to see the Kings Dominion team get to $16,000. (It's an OCD thing. Can't stand odd numbers!) We are only $155 away from that goal. So, to help us reach that goal, I am going to match any donations that anyone makes to any of the Kings Dominion team members up to $155! Whatever you donate, I'll donate right back to you!

     

    Here are the Kings Dominion team members:

  6. I just signed up a friend of mine who will be joining us at Kings Dominion. Her name is Tabatha Carrington. She is currently sitting there all alone and sad at zero dollars. To help get her started, I will make a matching donation to anyone who donates to her page. Any amount at all. Whatever you give to her, I will give right back to you! (Or to anyone else you want me to donate it back to.) Please give Tabatha a 'lil help!

     

    Here is the link to her page: http://support.gktw.org/goto/tabathac

     

    Thanks everyone!

    Boom! Just donated to her. Just donate that same amount back to her or who ever else might need it.

     

    Thanks so much! We both appreciate your generosity!

  8. Team TPR: Kings Dominion is within $15 of reaching its goal of $5,000! If you're the first person to donate $15 to any member of the KD team (doesn't have to be me), I'll match that for any other Team TPR member (any park) that you want.

     

    Be sure to post here so I'll know who was first.

     

    And, I will match Chuck's matching gift! Whoever gives $15 to any KD team member first will now get a $30 matching donation for any other TPR member ($15 from Chuck plus $15 from me) at any park.
