      August 9, 2013

    • Eva A.

      I would love to Luanna. Do you still have the seats open?

      August 9, 2013

  • Pam R

    I don't recall what we paid, was it $26? If the tickets are $28.50 then we need to reimburse Kenan or Cindy for the extra cost. They should not have to pick up this additional cost.

    1 · August 9, 2013

    • Cindy

      I forgot to add tax to the tickets, Kenan picked up the difference so you owe him.

      August 9, 2013

  • Cindy

    Everyone should bring a few extra dollars to tip our tour guide. I'm thinking maybe 2 bucks?

    1 · August 9, 2013

  • Kenan

    the Duck ride is a total of 90 minutes.. on land and in water...

    August 5th Monday #####UPDATE UPDATE##### As of right now we have 13 seats left.. It is still our Duck... For now, no guarantee that they wont sell seats to others.. Anyone remotely interested just click the paypal thing only because you know you will be really interested at weeks end.. Also wanted to mention.. For those of you that have sent email's to me about wanting/ showing interest to come to the lunch part at the Sport Restaurant & Bar but not do the Duck Please let me know for sure if you are coming so i can make sure i have enough tables in general area saved for us to all sit / mingle comfortably in the same general area.. Duck leaves at 2pm, Sport Restaurant & Bar is a block away so (Duck riders) we really need to head that way no later then 1:30pm again i hope all makes sense.. if not please contact me.. as well contact me about parking options if you are not familiar with the area...

    August 5, 2013

    • Kenan

      DeeDee.. well in my dreams i would have you park in my bedroom.. but we know that cant happen (you have a pretty cool boyfriend).. so when the day comes closer we will figure the best option out for all...

      August 6, 2013

Looking forward to seeing all of you at or soon after noon time Saturday.. If you are hungry the Sport makes a fantastic French Dip.. But they also have a full bar menu.. (Yes Jerry) the Chef (owner) is known in the football world as well for his delicious recipes... As for Parking i plan to do a second post soon giving you parking options..

      Hey John, glad you can use my ticket. It would be a shame for it to go to waste! I had no intention of cancelling, then had a car issue & the dealer can only get me in at 2pm Sat., & I really need to take care of that instead. Just buy me a coupla drinks the next time we're at the same event & we'll call it even-steven. Have fun!
