OK...I just did a mad scattering of donations to multiple members!!! Some of you, it was a thank you for a previous donation. Others...it was why not! Go Team TPR!!! (Robb...it appears to have been a $90 round of donations...does that still earn some bonus TPR fun?) Go Team TPR!!!

 

PS...I'll be working a 12hour shift tomorrow. When I get home, I will match up to $10.00 per donation the first five donations I receive throughout the day...how does that sound? Game on!!!

^ Kerry, I'll tell you how it sounds.....it sounds awesome!! I LOVE the matching donations where you can double the impact for GKTW! Game on indeed. I decided to kick things off and gave you a $10 donation. Happy coasting in a few days!!

 

^^ Thanks, Robb! That's a great offer to drum up some more donations!!

THIS. Perfectly said, Elissa!

 

And remember, Valleyfair's is scheduled to be on Saturday, which would almost certainly have bigger projected attendance compared to Sunday. Also, if you look closer at the updated details, after the ERT on Renegade and Wild Thing, it mentions that ALL participants will receive Fast Lane vouchers for the rest of the day! Still sounds like they're doing plenty to me!

 

I think the fast lane thing is great! Plus I heard from a participant last year that said there were only a small number that did the marathon of the coasters the whole time they allowed them, most just went off and did their own thing. So they probably took that into consideration a bit. With Fast Lane, you can not only make quick work of getting on the coasters, you can get on all the other top rides as well. I think that's pretty awesome. Plus we can hit the water park and not feel like we're missing out on the coaster time.

 

6:30am is going to come a bit early, but it's worth it for the kids we're helping.

Not that it really matters to me too much but the reward for >$1000 raised includes a fast lane pass. That is fastlane for the whole day, not just one ride, right?

^ Yes, it's the same Fast Lane that you can purchase at the park, so it's good all day. I've gotten them the past 2 years, and basically when you check-in and get all your Coasting for Kids goodies, they will give you the Fast Lane pass (as long as you've raised at least $1,000). Good luck on reaching that milestone!

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:

Last year the weather had a lot to do with it. We started off with cold and sprinkles on Renegade. After lunch it was rain for the first hour on Wild Thing. People were wearing their jackets backwards with the hood over their faces, ouch. I will admit that I took about an hour break in the middle of Wild Thing ERT and still got 40+ rides on it.

 

Amazing work everyone. Looking forward to Sunday.

Okay, so I'm going to the event with a friend who has not raised $1000. It won't be too helpful for one of us to have a fast lane. I was at KI last year, Im not too worried about what I get to ride outside the marathon. Will I be able to give the fast lane to someone else if I so choose? If that's the case, I would gladly trade it off for a donation to my page.

Hey everyone, I just got passed for 1st place at WoF. Any TPR members want to help me out? I'll match the first $100 dollars that I receive, whether it be 1 $100 donation or 5 $20 donations, etc... Thanks in advance. Great work everyone!

I know at KD last year they gave us a thing with our name on it that you could bring back at any point in the season. Not sure if you could transfer it or not.

Thad, just donated $30 to your page to put you back where you belong -- in 1st place!!

 

Go Team TPR!!

Thanks, Nick! I'll donate to you at some point today.

 

Joey, I didn't see your donation come through. Are you sure that it was submitted? Just making sure because I didn't get an e-mail and I don't see it on my fundraising page.

 

***Edit: Nick, I just sent $30 your way...

^ Thanks for the return donation, Thad!

 

I'll just go ahead and throw out there that I have over the last few days crept up on the guy who currently sits in 2nd place at KD. If anyone is feeling generous and is looking for a place to send a Team TPR donation, I'd gladly and humbly accept any that came my way. I think it'd be awesome for Jason and I to finish as a nice TPR 1-2 punch at KD!!

 

Here's the link to my fundraising page - http://support.gktw.org/site/TR/CoastingForKids/General?px=1020149&pg=personal&fr_id=1235

 

The final hours until tomorrow's Noon deadline are upon us.....let's finish with a flourish, Team TPR!!

Ahhhh!! So close!!

 

I will do a more in-depth tally again later tonight, but I just did some quick looks at our TPR teams to see the amounts that have been added today.......

 

And we are now LESS THAN $1,000 AWAY from $40,000 raised!!! I know we can make it!!

 

Unofficial tally came in at $39,372! Can we break through by the end of tonight?? Stay tuned to find out!

Time for more shameless advertising:

 

My sister and I are currently only $15 away from $200. If we reach that milestone, everybody on Team TPR at Cedar Point would have raised at least $200!!!!

 

End of shameless advertising
