Hello Valuable Big Mike Readers!!!

 

Big Mike is back once again to show you another adventure taken on The Big Mike Road Show!

 

This trip took Big Mike to the state of Mississippi to visit Brookhaven Exchange Club and home to the ONLY roller coaster in the state of Mississippi, the All American Roller Coaster!!!

 

The Brookhaven Exchange is only open about one week a year during the fair, and this was not even close to the week while Big Mike was visiting!!!

 

As everyone probably knows by now, Big Mike has this little thing he likes to pull out every once in a while when he really needs it called "The Big Mike Charm"!! Big Mike surely needed it this time, pulled it out, used it, and once again it worked like magic! The guys at Brookhaven Exchange Club loved the idea of The Mighty Big Man coming to ride their coaster, and not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4 guys showed up to show Big Mike around

 

This was a great day in Big Mike Road Show history, and now you can experience it too!

 

I sure hope you enjoy it!!!!!

 

 

Before we get to that, let's give a big hand out to the following fellow TPR members for winning MAGICAL MIKEY T-SHIRTS last year!!!

Don't forget , these NEW MAGICAL MIKEY T-SHIRTS have special powers, and will NEVER expire, so you can wear it year after year and still claim benefits from it!

 

Every time someone wins a Magical Mikey T-Shirt, the MAGICAL MIKEY shirt will reward the person a possible 3 times a year:

 

1. Wear your MAGICAL MIKEY T-shirt to a park one time a year and buy yourself a treat, take a picture of you wearing your shirt and displaying your treat and post it in the thread and Big Mike will refund you $5 for that treat!

 

2. Wear your MAGICAL MIKEY T-shirt to a TPR Bash Event or on a TPR trip and buy yourself a treat, take a picture of you wearing your shirt and displaying your treat and post it in this thread and Big Mike will refund you $5 for that treat!

 

3. Wear your MAGICAL MIKEY T-shirt while meeting up with Big Mike at a park during the season and Big Mike will buy you a treat on the spot!

 

 

That is 3 chances for a treat a year, year after year, and the ability to wear a very cool BRANDNEW ONE OF A KIND t-shirt!!! (Not the famous gold one)

 

BIG MIKE STILL HAS LOTS OF SHIRTS, SO STAY TUNED ON HOW TO WIN ONE!

 

 

Also, the next round for the free 2014 season pass or one week condo stay is happening NOW!

 

 

GRAND CHAMPION ELIMINATION TOURNAMENT!!!

 

ROUND #2

 

Everyone who found a ducky at a park or guessed a Find the Ducky contest correctly has been entered into the Grand Prize Drawing!!!

 

I took the list straight off page #1 in exact order of the draft picks and there will now be 8 rounds of eliminations until only one person is left and is declared Grand Champion and can collect the Grand Prize of a free 2014 season pass or a one week condo stay!

 

The rules are very simple, everyone is matched up with an odd number vs. an even number. During the MEGA MILLIONS drawing on FRIDAY JANUARY 17TH, whatever the Mega Ball number is, odd or even (there are 46 mega ball numbers, so it is equal), either all the odds advance or all the evens advance! Example - If the Mega Ball is 19 which is an odd number, everyone with an odd number in front of their name advances (1,3,5,7 etc). Once round #1 is done, everyone who advanced will be re-numbered in exact order and begin round #2. We will go from 144 in round one to 72 in round 2, to 36 in round 3, to 18 in round 4, then we will have a special round where only 2 people get eliminated in round 5 down to 16, then to 8 , then to 4, then to 2, and then we will have our sole survivor and Grand Champion!!!

 

Easy peasy!!! It is kind of like having to win a coin flip 9 times in a row, but one person will do it!

 

 

Good Luck to all!!!

Here is an overview of the coaster and the rest of the rides at Brookhaven Exchange Club! Just remember, the park was not open to the public, so the rides are not ready to go!

As they were giving me a tour of the facility, they said this ride actually was found on a highway and when no one came back to claim it, they were allowed to keep it.

^ Really? Retiring in six years?

Ain't no such animal or reason, Michael!

And I don't think you'll be able to let go of "it" so easily.

 

Believe me, after 50 years old, you may get "the urge" again, lol.

Wow!

 

One day short of a full year of no posts in this thread! lol

 

I was one day going to try to go back to the Dells and find my missing duckies too!

 

As far as I remember, no one found any.

 

I would be interested in seeing if any are still there.

 

Let me know please.

 

 

Peace, Big Mike

Good to hear from you, saw that I was a day short of a full year as well. I shall have the kids hunt them down, I'll get pics and post them, while we are out there if no one sneaks in before me to get them. Hope to see you around again.

Okay where do i start, I saw this thread for the first time ten days or so ago when someone posted in it. I decided to use down time to read through it for whatever reason and read it like a book. Each chapter something new and exciting with highs and lows. Reading about all of your experiences and travels are awesome and i feel like i still want more. the heartbreak that came from your dads passing (sorry to hear about that i know its 5 years later but still i'm sorry to hear about it it's always tough to lose a loved one) and the Megan issue (what a terrible thing to do) to now you seem to have everything on track with your girlfriend and i saw on Facebook completing 5 goals you had with your mother (which is awesome).

 

Some major highlights of this whole thread.

The ducky games , man am i sad i missed out on that. I played along even though i was years behind (sucked horribly at it too)

The stop at Kuma's Corner, being a metal head i really hope to make it there some day soon.

You have made me want to save up and go on one of these Scandinavian tours, those places look great.

 

I've never met you obviously, or even talked to you but your humor and outlook on life as i see through your postings here are that of a great person. One day maybe we will happen to be at the same park and i could share a ride with you on a coaster.

 

At the end of this thread it almost felt like an incomplete book though and I hope to see you get back into it at some point. I promise if you start doing these again i will be there to be a super valuable big mike road show reader. I wish you nothing but the best in your future endeavors and hope you have a great time along the way. Thank you for the entertainment you brought me in the last ten days and the entertainment you brought others on here for years!
