Looks great... but I'd take out the date.. They could be used repeatedly if this becomes a annual event

I love the Burgee and I love what you guys are doing here. I'm proud to be a member of SailNet. I have followed the Courtney thread since I happened upon it, and I'm overwhelmed by the generosity and sincerity of it's members. Faster, I would be happy to participate in the event if I'm in the country at the time. Bubb2, I sat with my wife this morning and told her all about what I've learned about yourself, your wife and daughters. Our hearts go out to you.

Thanks, Nemier.. that's a start. We'll be just back from our summer cruise but as it's a weekend I think we could arrange something for our Lower Mainland contingent, and maybe even get some non-owners/lurkers involved too.

Sat Aug 28, I believe is the date.

My wife's a breast cancer survivor so we're certainly onside with this whole concept... we're the lucky ones..

nemier, Faster

You guys are exactly what this is all about. Two are more people getting together, on a grass roots level on Aug 28. Getting together to remember those that have battled cancer and those that are battling cancer.

You guys make both Courtney and I proud. Thanks.

I'd point out it isn't just for the people who have battled cancer, but supporting those who have lost people to cancer, like Bubb and I both have.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Hey Mike & Jim - I am in! I want a burgee too and will fly it n omatter where we are - and more than just in August. I also think you should take out the date (my opinion) but it is yours to design and I think you and the family should do it and design it for what feels right.

I also like that it is not just about Courtney (who touched all of us here) but also about all breast cancer survivors and awareness. Christie's mom (my wife) died of cancer at 22 or 23 and left Christie without a mom at 7 yo. These things hit close to home.

Great idea guys. If Sailnet can help, please let me know what we can do and I will reach out to Rob.

Take care,

Brian

As sure as any plan can be in January for August, I'll be in Racine. What with school starting and all, we're at the mercy of the kids' schedules. But if we are at the boat (in Reefpoint), we'll plan to participate.
