    OK Shotgun raffle update. All 100 Tickets sold by Saturday evening!!! We had a Cook Out gathering for everyone that wanted to attend. Was close to 50 people!!! I cooked a Cajun Shrimp and Sausage boil with corn and potatoes. Also several bushels of Oysters and some Shrimp and sausage Kabobs. The Cook out netted $645.00 which was added to the Shotgun raffle. I also received some mail in Donations from a few Scream and Fly Members. Thank you everyone that contributed or bought Raffle tickets!!!!!!! The total donated from the Shotgun raffle, Cook Out and mail in donations was $2725.00. The VODBA Club Raffles, sales etc have yet to be totaled. But Ill Post the results as soon as I know!!!. The Shotgun was won by Chris Blanton of Conley SC. Chris is the Crew Chief for Tre Skipper who races with VODBA in the 1200/1400# carb classes.

    Megan Update as of 10/29/18 2pm- Meg is still making forward progress!! She has been working hard every day with Speech, Occupational and Physical therapists!! Today they have decided to add cardiac rehab to her daily daily routine. With the work of the therapists she has begun walking with the assistance of a walker.. and today she took steps without the walker!!! She is still having difficulty with speech but we are hopeful this improves as her trach hole grows shut. The fundraisers to date were both an overwhelming success. There is talk of a benefit hockey game coming.. stay tuned for more on this as it comes available. We still dont think she is up for visitors at this time... but here are some pics from today's visit...

    You are all amazing people. Most dont know me and obviously only a very few have met Megan. The love and generosity have been truly amazing. I can't say enough about Bud. He is truly amazing. I believe he makes me tell him every day. Here is Meg giving her bear a kiss on the nose which she does nightly

    My family and I would like to thank everyone of you wonderful people at the Virginia Outlaw Drag Boat Association. Your prayers and generosity are just simply amazing and humble us. Megan is surprising everyone with her progress in the short time she has been in rehab. Leslie R. Thomas I have told your story to everyone I meet and a number of times to Megan. Stacy, Raquel, Bud, all the drivers that donated their prize money and everyone else who put on this wonderful event we will always have all of you in our prayers for what you have done for our Megan. Its simply a miracle from where we have been to where we are headed. We know its gonna be a long road but we are a strong, tight family and with the support shown for our daughter we will make the best of it.

    I made my donation a few days ago.

    I somewhat know what she is going through since I'm a stroke survivor and continue to recover. Parts of my brain were deprived of oxygen. It's been 14 months and I still getting closer to normal. It's amazing how the brain can relearn what has been damaged! Prayers too..

    So tonight I'm pushing Megan around the rehab in her wheelchair. I say you want to park this and walk back to your room. So up she stands and I'm behind her to catch her just in case. I tell her she walks like a zombie from Walking Dead. Now she starts swinging her arms like Michael Jackson in Thriller. She's cracking up I'm cracking up. My girl still hasn't lost her sense of humor which tells me she's gonna be ok
