Castaways Show Their Stuff In Orlando

:: 12 September 2009 ::

A Letter from the New Captain, Patrick:

"Castaways came up big at the ACS' Volunteer Leadership Kickoff this weekend. The event was for the entire Florida Division - hundreds of key volunteers and professionals from across the state. Rainman and I did get to hang out with Carrie for awhile.

Our part opened the General Session on Saturday morning. They showed a bit of the opening of our 2008 video - and then Rainman and I took the stage. We had a prepared presentation and got some laughs. Rainman was awesome! As we exited the stage, they showed a piece of the end of the video.

We were followed by the outgoing CEO of the Florida Division, who back in the green room, told us he'd seen all our videos. We also met the incoming CEO who spoke - and we were introduced to the National ACS CEO who also gave a powerful and dynamic speech. All of them thanked us personally.

The final speaker was a scientist/researcher. As she got the final applause, Rainman and I walked on-stage carrying my kayak. We had a little schtick planned with the scientist and we got some more laughs.

Anyway, we opened and closed this important meeting and it was incredible to be a part of it all."

Back in the Saddle!

:: 15 August 2009 ::

To celebrate the end of Summer 2009, a handful of Castaways (OB, Patrick, Greg, & Adam) took to the waters of Key Largo for an overnight paddle which turned into a battle of the elements! After paddling from FBO to Lake Surprise, the Castaways were nearly stranded underneath the US1 bridge as the skies opened up. After a few hours, the boys jumped back in their boats and returned to FBO since camping was not an option.

You can pick the weekend... but you can't pick the weather.
