I was issued the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge by Ron Young.  I understand the Ice Bucket Challenge and the good it is doing to raise awareness of ALS.  The rules as I understand them are to accept the challenge and either pour ice water on my head or donate to ALS.  I know lots of people dump the water and donate, but some just dump the water.  I am choosing to add my own twist.  Unfortunately this terrible disease has personally touched my life.  It removed a wonderful man from my life, Becky’s Uncle Bob who was a true gentleman and “my uncle” as well.  So I am not going to dump water on my head but I wrote a $100 check to ALS.  I know people then issue a challenge to friends to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.  My twist is that I will not challenge anyone to perform the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.  Instead, I issue a challenge to all my friends to pledge/donate to ALS.  Once my friends pledge $500 to ALS, I will perform the Ice Bucket Challenge.  If my friends pledge over $1000 I will perform a second Ice Bucket Challenge at the 2014 NADAC Championships, I have Sharon Nelson’s permission.  The dump at Champs will have to be at a time that it doesn’t interfere with running of Champs, I wouldn’t do it there otherwise.   You can email or private message via Facebook or the NADAC Forum me if you don’t want to put you donation here.  Thanks for you support.

Thanks Al.

Here is a link to do donations online:
https://secure2.convio.net/alsa/site/Donation2;jsessionid=9BF22DE6BFD00A7BBC98225CED52F433.app277b?df_id=27420&27420.donation=form1

Here is a link for the form to send it via mail to do it via mail
http://web.alsa.org/site/DocServer/Offline_Donation_Form_National_2014.pdf;jsessionid=F3C38DD97637D8EF7C34B558427247D3.app277b?docID=114162

Just to be clear I'm not challenging anyone to perform the challenge.  Feel free to do it but I was never one to like the idea of putting people on the spot to do things.  This is just my own off center way of responding.  I decided that raise the $500/$1000 might be doable if 50/100 friends gave $10.  I got some nice response to challenge on Facebook and I know many people have already given to the challenge.

Thanks again Al.

Hi Tim.............

THANKS for the online donations link..............................we'll take care of that part of the challenge this afternoon...........................

I enlisted the help of my wife, Barb...............................and she commented that it was so much FUN that she is doubling our $25 donation to $50!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah, I know that it's not your style to put folks on the spot; but sometimes ya just gotta do what ya gotta do......................and we all do it differently! <VBG>  It doesn't seem as though I'm 44 years removed from the start of my college years; but I was ALWAYS "up" for silly & goofy for a good cause back then...........................and even though I've gotten older, I really haven't matured all THAT much!!!!!! <LOL>

Barb had FUN..........................and after mowing a good chunk of our lawn in this morning's heat and sweltering humidity, getting drenched with ice and ice water actually felt pretty good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anyway, here's the link to the video........................enjoy! <VBG>

Nice job Al.   :)  You are right Barb did seem to really enjoy that.  I think growing up is overrated.  Yes we must be responsible citizens some times but never let the kid totally disappear.  Looks like the first of my challenges will be met so I will be getting wet soon.  May wait till this coming weekend, got to get my plans in place.

Thanks Sharon, LeeAnn and Becky for you donations.  Not sure of the total at this point but I will do the first challenge this weekend.  Video will be posted shortly after that I hope.  Work is getting in the way of things at the moment.  I was hoping to hit a lull before Champs instead of getting very busy.  Oh well I think I have a plan for the first dunk.  Let me know if anyone has suggestions for the Champ dunk.

Tim,  My donation was for $25, so you can add that to your total.  I sure hope you get to $1000 or more!
