With lovely. -- hoops she's the mr. -- global director of public relations and and things of that nature and she was in town for that dinner. But tonight's grand tasting and there's plenty of tickets for that still available. You get those tickets -- corset which politics dot com you should open the door but you better have a ticket and because. You wanna walk right in so many ones so little time with them later on this event is so cool it is called over the edge. It's but. It it's just such a cool way to raise money. And I think there's still time to get the ball Mark Douglas and Mark Douglas of course is say financial -- from Wells Fargo and he's a great friend mark welcomed the program. Thank you thank you very much our brother tell me about this no look I as crews in the that donors page and looking and everybody who's collect the money and then Margaret might otherwise my girlfriend cirrus Scott she's on there. Let's see how she do I haven't donated yet but I will -- this is kind of fun. Tell us about the event and -- memo talked. About -- -- but they -- it's really exciting I mean where else in Kansas can you drop 170 feet off the side of the building. And be totally safe totally this just real exciting and end to mention you're otherwise she is when -- first when we get to a sign up. First when I thought about this is real exciting I'm gonna be doing it myself we're dropping down the side of the ambassador hotel on May tenth Saturday. Start dropping about 9 o'clock. Is just a really -- Coolio. This group over the -- has done events all around the country about 200 of them over a thousand majors. Completely safe yup -- industry say standards. And not a single incident but it's really really cool I mean. You you can be so safe but but you talk about that adrenaline rush when you drop off that slide -- I'm just really really excited to be part of this. We you know I'm a pilot and I'm not -- fond of -- Are you an airplane so much different when you strap all this stuff on -- save lives. It takes strong testicular fortitude to -- off the edge. Where exactly when you have to lean back it's. I'll tell you certainty isn't good stories about her first attempt something like this. But it's just a really really cool deal. We got involved. Witness who was just looking person and opportunity something different something has never been done in which called for in this group just really really. -- in beautifully with the voice counsel what they do. The way they sir scouting and great way to raise visibility into have just like great great time. So that that's -- it kind of started this is a mention that I just my hand went up I just couldn't help but -- had just been a few years decide but I did anything like this. But I could not help put myself to be part of this. And as I look through the donors -- -- came up with 5000 dollars. My hand good ammonia. And and let's talk about how close can get involved I think there's still time and end -- -- I know there's a limited number of folks can go over the edge. We yup we do we have a -- never spots available we still have some still there. So. Just any individual can sign in -- 750 dollars. And they can go over the edge. If their active military or a scout or or a boy scout eighteen or over. They can do it for 500 dollars so we're really trying to support that and we have a number of eagle scouts -- going over the edge. And it's that simple give give Micah Johnson called a discount office. Throw the number up to 641772. And we can get him and get them involved in Houston signed up very very quickly there's a little room for sponsors have to come plugged sponsors can thank you for the and I spoke for us but. This is just a commitment this -- believe what's the -- are doing and just the excitement that can't we have another great people like fidelity bank. Great plains southwest national. Back woods Affleck that Coke industries just came onboard so we got some great sponsors just make this event -- avail of course those -- Blast well there's so many good things here one it's a great cause we got that. It's really fun for those of you to do it in. Just because -- says Senator Clinton all through that means what you do as you hit up are your friends to donate through the page is exactly you get to have the fun -- he thought he had -- works now there's another way you can do this too we have a never groups that are. Raising money to you know if you've ever had -- those reviews didn't go quite as smooth -- like he get a -- your friends together and toss your boss so you can raise money and and then have your boss over the edge and that would be a blast to watch the stand there at the bottom what you scream my little girl -- you can go off on that today strap it didn't. In my speech we go someplace for sure not all wanted it to do you actually -- the Australian assessed let's I haven't had a confirmation on that yes but it's so cool and folks if you were obviously had a phone numbers have for questions and get involved -- 3162647070. Do. But if you wanna learn more about the program in general and certainly the program -- Wichita his over the -- Kansas stock comments may tenth. What kinds of shook it off on May tenth the first day jurors will draw the 9 AM will run up to about 4 o'clock. The end -- areas there on the north side of Douglas we can stand watch we're sponsoring the base camp on the north side. With prevailing winds were being coming on the north side the ambassador there hands this can be a blast and I look through there's a lot of folks that are. Pretty close you know to get their stuff but. Many got to beat the bushes -- somebody with a 150 -- said if you've got a lot of work to do. But it's kind of -- so you can go and don't support somebody I guarantee that probably somebody here that you know. On this list of folks are doing already but I think the ideas probably sign up I'd sign up but I'm afraid the -- might not be too strong. Well we do have a double harness. It's called over the edge it is for the Boy Scouts and just before we finished that -- you know the Boy Scouts did. It and in the big day thing and all that stuff it's still a great program. But all that who the bottom line is. Young young boys turn an -- Exactly I'm I'm telling you a thousand boy scout and the the the basic did you know that the confidence he built it bill Ford in and do things in life.

One degrees started what mid ninety's -- and 9393. Using 93 back then there was only a handful -- probably. Forty or fifty now there's 750. So our industry is definitely grown and I'm sorry if so or more has a not very nice pedigree I mean that we've been doing it for -- only doing it well or consistently. Just so cool and had to go to be there when we were there and to be a part of the smell in the sound and in the buzzing of those -- the fruit -- at the video is just it was always a great fun and end.
