This event an touches me in more than one way…. I lost my Grandmother and Uncle to Cancer.. I have made it a goal in my life that I should give back when I can… This is one small way…

This years theme was Birthday since it is the 100 year anniversary of the ACS. They decided to do a decade hours sponsored by different teams…

Event Listing

 

 

A few days before hand I recieved this via email and it was nice to see it was going to be a slow pace…. Music all night all long with very little extra’s.

 

I arrived on site at 3:00 pm to start setting up and decide to try a new setup for this year…

 

I had music playing by 4:15 and it was nice. After I got my main playing volume I walked the track to see if my new mics would work and no matter where I went the mics worked really well…

At 5:00 pm the wellness tent which is a great thing to have on site. Anything you wanted to know how about being healthy and cancer stuff…

At 5:30 pm the CPS-3 Testing tent opened up. It was great to know that this year that we had on site testing.

At 6:00 pm Opening Ceremonies/ Survivors Lap, Followed by the Survivors dinner. Below are pictures of the Opening Ceremonies and the survivors lap.

7:00 pm I started playing a few hours of open music.

A lot of requests were being made during this time. You name the era I played it.

My wife and nephew came by. A couple of class mates of his happen to be there so for a few hours they played before they went home.

10:00 pm I started an hour of Line Dancing and I could not believe how many people came out to do them. It actually last a whole hour…

11:00 pm I started playing another hour of open music… I started taking more requests.

Due to 60’s and 50’s music being short in length so the music ran a little short so at 6:00 am I start playing open music and starting playing requests as well until we had the closing ceremonies at 8:00 am.
