Count Down Is On!!!

Ok... tomorrow morning makes it 5 more days until shotgun start in the streets of downtown Memphis for the big event!!!

The tables and chairs are set up for the dinner, decorations will be going up on Thursday afternoon. I can not believe it is all but here!!!

A few last minute details:

First, the highly anticipated weather forecast for Saturday morning... Mostly sunny... high in the low 50's and low around 31 degrees! That means, 7:00am it will be in the low 30's. The good part, it will begin to warm up fairly quick, we hope. I do not think it is supposed to be as windy as it was last year, that is a good thing. The wind chill is what made it so cold last year.

Team Dinner will begin at 6:30. The church building (Great Oaks Church of Christ) is located at 3355 Brunswick Rd. Bartlett, TN. It is on the corner of Brunswick Rd. and Ellis. It is approximately a one and a half miles from the Holiday Inn where our team is staying. Cost of meal is $10.00. Please have cash or check. We do not have a way to process credit or debit cards. All reservations are final, we can not accept any late comers at this point.

Don't forget to allow yourself time to pick up your packets for the race. You will need a form of photo id to get your packet.

For Team Believe members, do not forget to bring or wear your team t-shirt so we can get a team picture. Just told our resident photographer to make sure he packs the right lens to get a shot of a big group!!! We are an awesome and big group this year!!!!

We are going to have some very special items on display for a silent auction this year. I know Allison has already laid claim on one of the special items... highest bidder takes it home with them :) Plan on browsing the auction items, there will be some items you just might be glad you got or wish you had gotten on Saturday night AFTER the big event that morning!!

Last and most important... COME PREPARED TO HAVE A WONDERFUL TIME OF FELLOWSHIP AND FOOD! If we are not busy visiting, then we are eating or better yet doing both at the same time!!!! For any first time folks.... be prepared for a weekend you will NEVER forget. Bring your cameras and your address books.

Several of our kiddo's are here at the hospital going through checkups and scans this week. Keep them in your prayers for excellent reports. I know, Heather, Alex V, Gavin, both Trevor's and I know I am leaving out someone (forgive me) are all here and praying for good reports.

Keep Dax and family in your prayers too. This is a most difficult time for them.
