Come one, come all to the Mongol Rally Guys’ Charity Euchre Event being held at the Life Church Assembly of God in Walled Lake, Michigan. For just $25 per ticket you have a chance to walk away with a nice bit of prize money* and assist our charity efforts at the same time. The event starts at 6:00PM and will run until 9:30, with food and refreshments provided for all.
This will be our final fundraising event, and we still need more money to meet our charity fundraising goals, so please come out and show your support!
* Provided, of course, that you are an awesome Euchre player!
The car has been dropped off in New Jersey and ships today. I have arrived in London and will pick up the car in a couple of weeks. Thus begins Mongol Rally 2009!
Actual quote from the car shipping company representative upon dropping off the car: “You’re shipping this piece of sh*t!? I’m gonna run out of ink on my pen just detailing the existing damage on the thing”. Yup, that’s our baby!
HUGE thanks to my stepfather Matt, who was the one that underwent the arduous journey to actually drop off the car at the New Jersey docks. I was all set to do it myself until I received an e-mail from the shipping company that I wasn’t actually guaranteed a spot to the UK for my car until the car was at their facilities. Thanks for letting me know guys! So, we had only a few days to ensure arrival of the vehicle in order to guarantee pick-up before the start of the rally. Matt also crafted us a roof-rack to place our spare tires and gas canisters on during the rally.
Also, thank you to my father, who provided packing help and car fixing-up. Thanks to mom for our rations trip to Costco and for other general support miscellany.
Thanks to all of you that came out on Monday night to support us! We had a great turnout and raised a lot of money for charity.
Special thanks goes to Cheryl Savage, Lorene McVey, and the Lakes Area Rotary Club for helping us create and sell the Mongol Rally Guys T-Shirts. Also need to thank local artist Julie Dawson for the wonderful artwork she donated for our silent auction. And, of course, thanks to the staff at BD’s Mongolian BBQ in Novi and general manager Julie Yohe for the great service and also the generous contribution to our charities.
Pictures of the event have been posted in the Gallery, go take a look!
We have a new team logo and T-shirts to go along with them!
Collin has come up with a snazzy new design that we have decided to slap on some T-shirts and offer to all of you for the low, low price of $15.00. Of course, all of the profits from each shirt goes to our charity, so don’t be afraid to snatch up some for you…and some for your family…and some more for your friends, etc. etc.
Order via our PayPal ordering system and we’ll ship it to you for $2. Or, you can order at one of our events (such as our send-off event on Monday, June 8th at BD’s Mongolian BBQ in Novi) and we’ll give it to you right then and there!
The above design is centered on the middle of the shirt; all shirts are white in color. Please list sizes desired (Kids S-L, Adult XS-XXL) in the comments box before you checkout your order.
Thanks to all of you that came out to the Uptown Grille last night for our pre-send-off event—we had a great time! We have posted a couple of pictures in the gallery from the event.
Be sure to mark the evening of Monday, June 8th (next week) on your calendar—it’s our largest, most important event. Both guys will be manning the grills to cook everyone dinner, and we will have a 50/50 raffle and a silent art auction. If you weren’t able to come last night for some reason be sure to come this time and wish Scott “bon voyage” on his trip to the UK next week.
