Yo fellas,

Mooch went in for a checkup on Friday and the docs decided to keep him, and according to his sis he'll be there at least a few days.

San Mateo General Hospital, rm 218.  I'm sure he'd appreciate some friendly faces.

Porky and I were kicking around the idea of doing some kind of fundraising event to help out with his Medical expenses...even with insurance, the bills can add up fast...

Considering maybe a paddle from Cap Pier to the Mile Buoy and back, or maybe from SC to Cap...kinda an Aquatic Wharf to Wharf??

At then end could have a gathering at the Pier and for folks who were interested afterwards a potluck/fish-fry at my place in Capitola...my house is small, but I got space in the front and back to kick it and cook and hang out...

Maybe $25 to participate and Porky would make up a cool T-shirt for everybody who came out...all proceeds to help Mooch out with medical bills...

Not sure what you guys think...if Porky and I are way off base just let me know...

Sincerely,

Jim

Great idea Jim, tho I think the $ should just go into his and his sisters pocket or the killer fishing trip instead of the black hole of the bills- thats going to be paid for by medical.

Good point Ben, obviousy he could use whatever $$ we raise for whatever he needed most...as long as we all know that he gets 100% of the $$ raised/given that is the important thing!!

Sincerely,

Jim

And to promote cancer awareness, if your body feels strange or something ust isn't right, GET CHECKED! This is what my old man never did, too stubborn.

I'd like to see it happen like a Relay for Life event, where the participants gather donations/sponsors for there efforts on the paddle event, and if ya cant paddle, sponsor a paddler.

Its all done in a good positive upbeat fashion and to ultimately promote awareness and life. All money raised would be handed over.

Thanks for keeping us in the loop Eric.

I think a fundraiser sounds like a great idea.

Just got a text from his sis...  He's being released sometime today.  So better call before heading down...

If I hear anything else I'll let you know...  but hopefully Mooch himself will be posting again soon.

Well said Brent...

I am 100% down to help out any way I can with whatever format you/the group decide will be best...I like the sponsorship concept...like when the kids have a Walk-A-Thon and get sponsored for each mile they walk, we could get sponsors for each mile we paddle!!

Also, the cancer awareness part is a really important concept...cancer sucks and takes on so many different forms and has taken so many great people from us too soon...

Will be proud to help out anyway I can.

Also, an additional fundraising idea for either the night after the paddle, or whenever before or after, is a Texas Hold'em Poker tournament...$25 buy-in for 50 chips, can buy back in for same amount up to a certain time (pre-decided by the group)...can do BYOB...all $$ in pot goes to Mooch. Prizes for top three players (not huge prizes but ones that are cool enough to make it fun!!)...fun, low-key way to get some cash raised up pretty quick.

Sincerely,

Jim
