Prediction - all the people and groups that gave you grief about this and didn't want to help at all will suddenly do a 180 and jump on the band wagon.

Great Job Darrin

Chris has really worked hard putting this chapter together. I really hope this kind of exposure does help get more people involved and we can really start making a difference in these kid’s lives.

Just from taking my own son on these rides I can see how it has improved his confidence, self esteem, and his fitness level. We rode the Vortex Red trail yesterday at Santos and he had a blast, even though he fell a few times, had to walk some areas, but he came home just beaming and going on and on about the fun we had out there. 

Even if you don’t have kids of your own, I encourage you to volunteer a couple times with this group and you will be hooked!

Dont let it bug you Darrin. The producers make on the fly decisions like that all the time. Stories get bumped, and moved , Its just the nature of TV......They will get you your time!!

I just wanted to update everyone on the Fox story.  I just got off the phone with the producers and they assured me we are the next public interest story in line but these stories are always bumped for breaking news.  As of now the story is scheduled to run tonight but if there is breaking news (like the hijacked plane in Mexico) it will be bumped to tomorrow and so on and so on.  So just stay tuned, it will be running in the next few days if not tonight.
 
Also, this is kind of short notice but we are shooting another story with Bay News 9 tomorrow morning at Trout Creek and we still have room for a few more volunteers if you would like to come out and be on T.V.  We will be taking a group of 6 kids on a ride at 9 and the news crew will arrive at 10:30 to shoot some vidoe footage and interview volunteers and the kids.
 
If you would like to come out you can call me at 813-210-2013, email me at tfktampa@yahoo.com or just show up at 9 o'clock at Trout Creek.
