brought the dawson county relay for life to town.

our team set-up our tents etc around 7:30 friday morning and kept adding to the site as the day progressed. we had a massage chair on hand and raffled a quilt made by kathy gruber and her sister and a large grill donated by pamida. the event started at 5:00 friday evening finishing saturday morning around 7.

my little tent held up very well when the rain came around 3:30 saturday morning. rain doesn't quite convey the full experience. rain, lightning, wind. about 45 minutes of intense storm. i was snug inside reading by flashlight.

talbot was one of my helpers at the duck pond. he and i made several laps advertising our game. a buck a duck!! every duck a winner!! we had a pretty good response and lots of fun.
i walked about 4 hours. our team stuck it out through the rain and finished out the relay. i set my wet tent up at home to dry, got some sleep, and got busy with normal weekend stuff.
