2006 U.S. Transplant Games Louisville Kentucky

On June 22, 2006 George, QCC president wrote. "For ME, the HIGHLIGHT.... was the FIRST Dinner/Dance Cruise hosted by the Quarter Century Club! All aboard had a great time, the dinner was delicious, the dancin' music was "off the hook"! The boat was packed..well, one of the two levels!! We had 90 folks to sail with us, including athlets from MANY teams, their guests and Donor Family Members.

The evening started with a thunderstorm showing up at a most critical time for us! The Captain came down and told us if the storm got worse, we'd have to stay docked! The storm showed up so fast and furiously, it took us all by surprise! But, as had happened during our stay in Looeyvule?, Louis-ville?, Loo-vull? , the storm blew past us in 15 minutes, the Captain yelled "all aboard", and off we went! The sun was shinning, and the music was pumpin, the food was smelling great, and we were ALL smiles!
With the storm now in the distance, I asked the dj's if they had the theme song to "Gilligan's Island"...you know..."a three hour tour...the weather started getting rough, the tiny ship was tossed"...sadly, he said "no"!!
