Amazing time!!!!

Great turnout, TONS of awesome prizes, beautiful conditions OTW, big fun had by all paddlers grilling hotdogs, baby octopus, enjoying drinks and loving life out there together!!

 :smt004

The grandprize JK Cuda14 was won by PORKY!!!   :smt007

Nobody could believe it but it happened!!

He only had a few tickets in the whole raffle (actually donated by JustRoberts and a few other folks) and we spun the HECK out of the ticket hopper...his daughter Hailey reached in...and pulled out his ticket!!

SO COOL!! Now they have an awesome new kayak!!! 

He felt bad and wanted to give it back and I told him heck no!!!  :smt003

Huge thanks to all who donated prizes, bought tickets, came out to show support and love.

You are all awesome!!

Raised a ton of $$ for little Hailey as well!!!

Ended up with $2,593 in the Paypal account, and $5,820 collected in cash and checks for a total of $8,413 raised!!

Before the event we raised (through AOTY/DOTY registration fees, donations, GS8 silent auction and Softtub raffle ticket sales) $6,653 that we already gave to the Pass family.

The $8,413 from the actual PIF event combined with the $6,653 already given, gives us a new total of $15,066 raised for Hailey Pass.

Thanks again to everyone and please post up pics, videos and stories of the day here!

I have quite a few prizes in the back of my car won by folks who weren't there. I will go through them tonight when I get off work and post up a list of who won what in a different thread.

It was an awesome event! Highlights for me:

"Accidentally" getting punched in the arm by FM2
Winning one of guitarzan's sculptures
Meeting BPs fam and little baby! I love babies!
Seeing all of my favorite NCKA people

Thank you all for coming and showing love for our daughter Hailey,, I cant express myself enough on how much that means to us. Hailey is very special to us and to see all that love for her really made us feel good, I think any parent can understand that. Showing that kind of love and support for a child is amazing, specially when its yours. Hailey is a great kid and she had a WONDERFUL time, she left very tired but feeling very loved. When Jim started the raffle and spoke about Hailey when she was so sick, its was pretty emotional as you could tell by my wifes speech, very tough to hold back the tears! I was very proud of her for getting up and speaking because there is no way I could have held it together long enough to do what she did. I wish I could express my gratitude better, but We are so very thankful. You are all great people for doing such a wonderful thing for us. The financial help is amazing and even more so the love and support. Weve never experienced anything like that in our lives, I hope Joel was able to experience it all, hed be very proud and with out him and you all none of this would have happened. Like I said, were pretty taken back by it all.

Onto the raffle, well not sure what to say! Feels very awkward, but warm and fuzzy at the same time.  First off, thank you to who ever bought us a raffle ticket? As we did not buy any for obvious reasons. Hailey picking that winning ticket was just plain insanity, not even sure what happened is possible and a complete shock to us, maybe Joel had his hand in that box with Hailey :) I like to think so at least. If you were present you could see we were in disbelief and trying to desperately to re-spin before Big Jim grabbed my arms and raised them and drug me around like a rag doll :) Ugh! Not even sure what to say...... Please know that kayak is in santa cruz and ANY one of you can use it if you come to santa cruz to fish, just swing by our house. If anyone is as uncomfortable as I was :) about what happened, please let me know. Thank you to whoever bought that ticket... Not sure what to say!


Hailey also took home a really cool stone fish plaque made by Ben and LilRiverMan gave her a very cool hand carved wood sea horse which she also loves. Like I said she came home feeling very loved, which means the world to us. Still very emotional.

Jim, how do i post a iphone video, hailey made for you all?

We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be.

I want to stay as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can't see from the center.

People arenít supposed to look back. Iím certainly not going to do it anymore.Ē
