    Hi guys,
    I was in contact with Justin Wise from the Arkansas region of the MDA about doing an event of my own possibly next year and while talking with Mr. Wise I was told that the MDA will be having a Lockup Event in Pine Bluff and they will be having another Lockup in Conway in late October. If there are any members from the Pine Bluff area that would like to help The Lockup Event will be held at the Harbor Oaks Golf Club from 9am-2pm and the Conway Lockup Event will be on October 21st at the Marketplace Grill which I know I will be there to help them for that event. If there are any other members that would be intrested in helping out please let me know either by PM or e-mail I know the PB event is a little early but still if you can help they need it, they are mainly looking for people to help with hosting, accounting and other various items. As well this is Mr.Wise' e-mail for those intrested with this event and other events in the future or if you have any further questions jwise@mdausa.org.

    It's basically getting "locked up" to benefit the MDA I know Mr. Wise can tell you more but it's all in fun and charity.

    This is the message from Mr. Wise on what it is-
    The Lock Up is scheduled for tomorrow Wednesday, October 21st at the Marketplace Grill right in the heart of Conway (Over by the Old Wal-Mart). All volunteers are asked if possible to be at the marketplace Grill by 8:00AM to help set up the event prior to others arriving. Jailbirds will arrive every 30 minutes on the hour between 9AM-2PM. They are being arrested by off duty police and fire fighters in Conway . They are being escorted back to the jailhouse at Marketplace Grill in donated vehicles from local car dealerships. Once they arrive, they will have their mug shot taken, be able to feast on our gourmet version of bread and water and network with other fun loving business and community leaders while working the phones to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

    The MDA stands for the Muscular Dystrophy Assiciation I am currently helping them because I have a friend with MD, and I enjoy working with charity groups.
