We are in high gear making plans for the fast approaching date of August 28th. If you are hosting an event, please forward details to get posted on the website. If you are attending an event, please contact the organizer for your location to let them know you are coming. If you are planning to remember the day in your own special way, please take a minute and order a flag to honor Courtney and all those 28 million people worldwide battling with cancer, and to remember those who lost their battles.

If you need anything for your event, please let me know.

We were hoping to make it to the Racine event, but matters beyond my control have changed that. I Don't even think I will be able to sail that day, perhaps the 29th if I'm lucky, but I'll fly the flag, and think about the cause and the people who we have lost, and those still fighting.

I was really looking forward to getting to put a face with some of the names around here. I'll pencil in next years date as soon as one is figured out and do my best to keep it free.

I pray that all the events have great success, and look forward to details of them after the fact.

You guys all ROCK.

As I won't be able to attend, I will be up in the Apostles getting my ASA 103/104, I just ordered a flag and two wrist bands. Will be flying the flag on the boat as I sail about the islands, sure it will be fine with my instructor. Will be with you all in spirit!

I just ordered my flag and also made a donation.

Courtney has affected me more than anyone knows. I never had the pleasure of meeting her other than thru here on Sailnet. It was my loss.

I should have posted something at the time, but the right words escaped me.

Since then I have used my business to support cancer research as best I could. I have sponsored holes at golf tournments, supported Relay for Life, and a group here in town I have been one of sponsors for thier calendar.

It has not been much, but I hope it has helped.

My boat has been on the hard for about a year broke, but I will find some way to fly my flag.

Looking Forward to the Annapolis Event

I just received my Courtney flag and bracelets on Saturday. Who else besides Eryka and Mary will be at the Annapolis event, whatever it turns out to be?

Buckeye, I know just what you mean. Reading the thread brought tears to my eyes. I never know what to say either. Words seem so powerless, and there's nothing you can do to make it better. But the fault is mine, not the situation's. Courtney and her family touched all of us here on this forum through words alone. With such strength and grace, how could she (and they) not? We will remember her for the rest of our lives.

I am still waiting for my flag and bracelets which I ordered about 2 weeks ago. Not to rush anyone but I get a little nervous as the date approaches and I sure would like to display Courtneys flag on that day. If all goes well and my boat is ready I do hope to hookk up with other Long Islanders who will be out that weekend. Rick

Midnight, yes you ordered your flag on th 7/26/10 and it went out in the mail to you on 7/28/10. I have mailed all the flags with delivery confirmation. I will go to the post office in the morning and put a trace on it. I don't want you to worry as no matter what we will get a flag to you before th 28th.

Regards mike

We're trying for a raftup near Galesville: Sail With Courtney - Chesapeake - Aug 27-29
But that event may be overshadowed by the Annapolis photo op: Annapolis Photo-Op Invitation for which a date has not yet been set. I'm hoping we can link the two local events. We've ordered our flag/bracelets!
