Update time! Added some new members to the Team TPR roster on the first page, along with running our latest totals.

 

Team TPR has now raised.......drum roll.......$4,024 for GKTW!!! Awesome work thus far, everyone! Let's keep the train rolling!!

 

On another interesting note, we have our first team that's ready to cross over into 4-digit territory for money raised so far.....Team TPR at Cedar Point currently sits at $990. So, the question is - who wants to donate to one of their riders and push them over $1,000?? Come on, you know you want to!!

I'm hoping to sign up for Great America, assuming I have that day free. Does anyone know when the itineraries come out for the day? I'm curious to see which rides we'll be riding.

 

Well, there's no "set date" when they release the park itineraries, so all I can say is to keep checking the site for when they are updated. Also, there will be posts in here as soon as that information is released, and I will update the initial post of the thread as well. It's funny, in past years there were itineraries for at least some of the parks that were released by now. And some folks have posted in here with partial itineraries they've seen from the park sites. That leads me to think that the holdup is more on the GKTW side. They'll be released soon enough though, so don't worry and just sign up!

 

In other Team TPR news, I wanted to let everyone know that this year's CUSTOM SIGNATURE BANNERS are complete and ready to use!! Thank you for being patient while we finished them! I updated the first post to show them, along with instructions on how to set yours up (it's really easy!). I am also posting that information below. Go ahead and set yours up today so people can see it each time you post to the forum....I've got mine!

 

**NOTE #2** - YOUR CUSTOM SIGNATURE BANNER!

Once you are registered, head to TPR and add your signature banner! BE SURE YOU HAVE REGISTERED UNDER TEAM TPR! We have come up with 4 different banners you can choose from to add to your signature:

Setting yours up is really easy! Just follow these instructions.....

 

Go to:

 

User Control Panel > Profile > Edit Signature

 

And this would be the code:

[url=http://www.LINK_TO_YOUR_FUNDRAISING_PAGE.com][img=http://www.themeparkreview.com/forum/files/LINK_TO_THE_BANNER_HERE.jpg][/url]

 

So it should look something like this:

And the final product would appear like this:

So I will be trying to transfer a friend into my wife's spot as she is pregnant and cannot ride . so i have some things to sort out. I am still participating and either my friend or brother will be taking her spot if GKTW lets me do that when i contact them.

 

edit: my banner is working

^ CONGRATULATIONS!! That is awesome!

 

I'll throw something else out there, what if you asked GKTW if you could change your wife's page into a "virtual rider" one? Then your friend/brother/whoever can just join up normally. No need to "transfer" anything that way. Just a thought.

 

Oh, and nice banner!

Not sure about the other parks, but a quick search for coasting for kids gave me this information:

Carowinds fans and roller coaster enthusiasts alike will enjoy a day filled with riding our world-record breaking coaster, Fury 325 from 9-9:30 a.m.; Afterburn from 10 a.m.-5:30 p.m.; and Thunder Road from 8-8:30 p.m. repeatedly during the event.

First off, Dustin thank you for your donation! I sent you back $15 as well.

 

I just registered and so did my girlfriend, Kylie, for Team TPR's Cedar Point team. This will be my 3rd year attending, 2nd year at Cedar Point. I am very excited about the different itinerary and to raise some money for a good cause! Kylie doesn't have an account here, but I am sure she would be very flattered by any donations!

 

This charity means so much to me, especially after I had the pleasure of interacting with the mother of a wish child who had passed away about a year after their visit to the Village at the Cedar Point event two summers ago. Talking to her and hearing how incredible the week at GKTW was for her daughter and her family was simply incredible. Regardless of the unfortunate outcome for the young girl, the experience clearly provided them all with hope and joy, even if only for a week. The memory she has of her daughter was a strong and powerful one. I am so appreciative that I came to hear about this event and cause through TPR and wish everyone luck in reaching their goals!
