Getting ready to take the trek back to the 303 and reflecting on busy but amazing day and half in Albuquerque. Helping organize a brand new tourney/fundraiser is a challenge, but doing it 450 miles away throws in a few more monkey wrenches. But thanks to an incredible crew led by Greg Bronson, the event was organized, on time, professional, and wildly successful! In the end the Flint family, who lost their husband/father in April to a sudden heart attack, are picking up the
pieces and adjusting to the new normal. The crescendo of the event was the presentation of a check for $66,500, which grew to $68,000 by night’s end! My pals Super Joe Bedsey and Mike Case sweetened the deal with an invite to the family for an Avs game and Marriott stay for this upcoming season! It was so wonderful to see Trevor Flint’s heartbroken boys having a really good day, because in the end, that’s what it’s all about! And to top it all off, the day that started at 5 am ended with the unlikely scenario of yours truly taking home the Moose Cup at 11 pm after a very surprising Silver Division championship!! Now it’s time for the long drive back an maybe a quick pit stop to see my beautiful and perfect granddaughters!
And a very, very big THANK YOU to Greg and Tina for opening up their beautiful home and full hearts to a little fella from Colorado that is trying to do his small part in making the world a better place!
