toys for tots toy run santa's sleighJust finished up with the ABATE of Iowa Dist. 4 Toys for Tots Run, 2005. It was a great day – about 58 degrees, partly cloudy butpartly sunny too… Steve says he thinks there were fewer bikes this year, but I’d still estimate about 1,500-2,000 bikes, every bike donating at least one toy to the USMC Toys for Tots program, and many bikes donating multiple toys. (The lead bike was towing atrailer made to look like Santa’s sleigh, packed with toys!) 

We did hear reports of two “incidents” this year – one person apparently lost it taking a curve and wiped out, not seriously injured, so that’s such a relief. I hate to hear about this kind of stuff. And one person dropped their bike in the parking lot of the destination point, trying to maneuver. As large as this event always is, I’m frankly surprised there are not more of these types of things happening. I’m glad my fellow riders are okay! <p>

HERE is the photo album with all the pics.
