Summary write up:
In total, 2300 people raised $140,000.00 to benefit the Ameican Cancer Society in this 25th anniversary event.

The members of the Midwest Garrison group walked the race course in costume for nearly two miles. The weather was FANTASTIC! We turned off the track at the halfway point and headed back up to the finish line.

Later in the day, we ended up in downtown Sheboygan first storming Younkers department store and then heading out to the Electronics Boutique mall in armor in the evening.

The dry fountain picture session should turn out fabulous! I can certainly see them in any future recruiting packages that the MWG puts together!

AND-----TK118 can drive in armor WITH HIS HELMET ON!!!!!!

We are all surprised that he didn't get pulled over!

I had a blast. It was great, even though I was the only rebel. Must complete fett or tie costume pronto. Anyways I had fun, my feet are saying something different but I am not listening to them. Great turn out for wisconsin. Let me know if we got in the news or anything. When I get my pics developed I will post them. Awesome pics Mike. Next time you have something like this planned put a little notice in IL as well. I didn't really know about it untill the chicago halloween parade. Haunted House was great but next time lets go on a night when the entire city is not there. Need to charge my phone for those times of getting lost in the maze. Sorry for holding you up trent. Thanks again for letting me go on the last minute. Can't wait to troop again, I mean get shot again, or arrested. - Andrew_______________

Can you believe he actually said that?
