Last week was about as busy as it gets around here with lots of fun things to work on. By Friday, I was looking forward to "EVFN" to end my week. I knew Saturday was going to be a long day of "Climbing and Crawling" but was really looking forward to it. (Saturday morning was the annual Climb to Conquer Cancer followed by the Light Rail Pub Crawl in the evening.)
The "Climb" went well and the Rail Life team was well represented by a bunch of really cool people. I want to sincerely thank aLL of those who participated in donating money: Dru Bloomfield, Elaine Hanson, Jay Thompson, Chris Polito, "Bubba," Cathy Hagan and Dan Saban. "Team Members" (donating climbers) consisted of Sandra Acosta, Boni Bastian, Lisa Cain, Angela Castro, Nancy Castro, Tyler Hurst, Sylvia McClusky, Justin McHood, Gregory Montgomery, Emily and Jeremy Podborny, Marilyn Russell, Rob and Dina Sell along with Lori and I. This annual event means a lot to me as I lost my grandfather to cancer as a young boy and my mom is a cancer survivor. The large number of family and friends that have been touched by this disease is mind numbing as well. Again, thanks to all of you!
In case you are wondering, the "crawl" went well. I got to hang out with a really fun bunch of people and had a great time. Some pics of that event can be found on our "Flickr" page as well.
Remember… Rail Life has a "Phoenix Light Rail Group on Flickr." Basically, we want to share some of our pictures from the community and allow people to add their pics (or videos), as well. These can be light rail related, but we also want pics of your favorite spot, restaurant, sports team, community, etc
