What a Summer

I've not blogged for a while because I've been taking some time off to recover from the summer activities. I meant to get a slideshow together from Rezonate but still haven't gotten around to it. So I guess you'll have to settle for pics. The totals are in ... we made $1750.00 that goes straight to Backpacks for Pine Ridge and our operating expenses were well into the black as well. Not bad for a first year event. We will be taking 500 backpacks to the Rez next year.

And, there is more exciting news on the horizion. I can't share yet, but some really cool things are in the works. Let's just say that some of our team members (far and near) ROCK! :)

LOL at K-Bob!!!

I can't believe these great shots! Who was behind the camera? It looks so wonderful. I am bursting with admiration for you for pulling this off and next year I want to be there!

I think we should have some sort of a blogger gathering and combine that with your event :)
