    Looking back at the replay, it almost looks like Ft. Desoto whipped our butts. Not only did they seem to have more people, but they seemed gosh darn almost "organized". Surely the Beaches of SoWal can play that game. We demand a recount... let's see if DeSoto (wherever that's at) can field more HATS than we can, in the middle of March. I bet, if we did it again, pooled our resources, our handshakes, (and rented a dad-bum helicopter!) We could beat that beach...:blush:

    Lots of people in the Tampa Bay area, many of them retired and staffing multiple orgs like Sierra Club, Audubon, etc. Plenty of youth movement also.

    That doesn't necessarily mean we can't trash talk them into a "duel to the dune", handshake to handshake...Maybe they get more hands on the board, but do they get that dramatic flyby we will get...

    Yes! good stuff as always!!

    We will provide lots of free good eats and Senator Aronberg is an amazing person when you meet him. A great leader and a very personable Senator. He was the first Legislator to call me and offer his support of Hands Across The Sand. Let's help him on his quest to become Attorney General!!

    Shirts will continue to be sold at the Seaside Farmers Market. There are currently about 40 dated shirts remaining. The next batches will not have a date.

    Bumper stickers coming soon too.
