Go Hawks Part 2

Greenie O'Relay had so much fun at the game.

Here is another picture of Bonnie, this time with her friends and family.
We could see them across the rink.

They do a 50/50 drawing and the amount it ended up being was amazing!!!
Maybe we should have bought a ticket......

Our goalie did a great job.

Go Hawks!

Now this is dressing up for the game!!!

We won!!!

We always wait to see them present the 3 top players of the game.

This woman was so nice: we got a kick out of her.
She's my kind of people.

O'Relay made sure folks knew to recycle.

And Mark helped him support the Blazers.

Now he wants to go to a Blazers game.
We may have to make that happen!

Go Hawks!

So Mark and I went to the Winterhawk's game Saturday night.
The view of Mt. Hood was beautiful as we drove into Portland.

The weather was sunny, so we had a beer at Jack's, a new bar by the Moda Center.

I took my flat pirate, 'Greeny O'Relay' along for the ride.

He found the cheerleaders right away.

And our wonderful friend Bonnie.

He made a friend of this young lady.
She LOVES the Winterhawks, and we had a lot of fun talking to her during the game.
A good time was had by all!!!

Loving folks raising money for Relay!

Last night Mark played poker in a fundraiser for our Relay,
and I went along for the 'ride'.
It was held in a local business (we have such wonderful folks in our community!) and
part of the fun was checking out all the amazing vehicles.

This remodeled bus was amazing!
He uses it for tailgating.
You should see the inside.

They raised around $1,400.

Jamie did a fantastic job!!!

Angie cleaned up. For a while.
She hung in there for quite a while, and had fun as well.
Steve didn't do too badly himself!

Key and Steve, in the center, are our Survivors.
They are my heroes.

For Dad

Hey Dad, I went to a poker fundraiser last night
and ran into one of your old friends......

Last Saturday our Relay took part in the Hillsboro St. Pat's Day parade.
These wonderful veterans came over to see our pirate ship and get a couple of cookies.
We were proud to have them take their picture with our ship and little 'green pirate o'relay'. 

Mark was ready to go.

This fine officer was open to posing with our little 'Irish' pirate.

So was this dance class.

My friend Amber decorated her little car (named Doug) as a puppy
to promote Bark For Life.

Our pirate ship won the Most Irish float.
We were SO proud!
We truly enjoy this parade and all the wonderful folks who take part.

Randy built the ship (great job!) and Pat is the driving force behind our Relay folks taking part in this parade. We are so lucky to have the Relay family we do.

We believe in starting our youth in living the pirate life early!

Steve, my co-chair and a Surivor, and his niece proudly pose.
Steve is rocking the green hair!

Green Pirate O'Relay really gets around!

See? He knows everyone!

The pirates were enjoying getting out and about.
The weather turned warm and we loved it.

Roller derby: we need to go and root them on to victory!

Every good pirate has their faithful parrot.

Parade is about to start.

Mark is ready to start.

I couldn't resist taking a picture of this fine fellow.

One of my favorite Relayers!

Our Survivors.
So proud to Relay for them.
