    Good luck, Godspeed, wish i were heading down with you guys!

    My dad has had some not so good news in terms of cancer, the doctors will know more in the next week or so but he's already been scheduled for an operation to remove a growth in his sinus cavity.

    Anyways... enjoy yourselves

    Weather is still looking great guys, but remember to bring a jacket for the night time, and warm bedding. ;) Padme offered to be our talent, and no one objected and no one else offered, I have accepted her offer. She is working on a dance routine, and its quite good IMHO. :) Stars are finished, tent decorations are great, and banner is done, costumes are finished, and most my stuff is ready to be packed and all monies are deposited!! Its all looking great from here! Looking forward to a wonderful weekend everyone!

    Dear All R4L'ers,

    On the eve of Relay this year, I wanted to wish you all well, and having seen your efforts so far plus the reports I've been getting from the Team Captain, it's going to be another fantastic Relay.

    If it weren't for my commitments with the Fringe this year, I would be down there with you also. I really did want to after the excitement that's been building. The theme is brilliant, the efforts with raising money and preparations has been wonderful. It makes me proud that SAFF committed to the Victor Harbor Relay For Life all those months ago and has been able to follow through that commitment into action. You've all shown that when SAFF says it's going to do something, it actually DOES it!

    SAFF still goes strong.

    I know you'll all enjoy yourself down there as the plight to create awareness for cancer continues.

    RELAY ON! [face_dancing]

    - Toddi

    Follow the Yellow Brick Road...

    Later in the morning, DLA was seen putting the Yellow Brick road in the bin 'singing' "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road"!! Forest Gump was only seen to be running once, when the breakfast bell was rung! Maralyn put on an impromtu show as she sang ' Diamonds ' to the teams as they walked past! Snow White discovered she had 8 dwarfs and was somewhat confused! Tinkerbell spread glitter over everyone, and I suspect the guys in other teams were not so impressed with it all. Jedi baked cookies were strangely luring people to the Darkside! BUGS!! Seems we found that one night a year when all the flying ants do just that, FLY! Poor Maralyn had several getting 'busy' in her hair! Yikes! And my 'stuffed Shrek Toy' was seen in nearly every womans lap at one stage or another, he gets around!

    The Candle Ceremony was extreemly moving, and aside from the team who spent half of it giggling (till they were told to quit it), it had a very profound effect on all who attended. Drew tells us he is getting married in 6 weeks, and we all congratulated him. Karen, who has been organiser for the last three years stepped down as Chairperson, and was thanked for her wonderful efforts, but she is remaining on the the committee! Land Monster were NOT there thankfully, The Survivors ribbons were purple this year and the Carers were white. Riding for the Disabled maned the canteen van all night supplying sandwhiches, rolls and cakes, they were wonderful! Local Lions Club once again cooked the Breakfast BBQ and it was, as usual fantastic. The track!! For something entirely differnt, it was a replica of the Clipsal Track, with bends and curves all over the place. Areas like Pap Corner, Vigilance Bend and Recovery Straight were lit at night by glow sticks. Our team were on Mamogram Flat! It made walking more interesting, you had to concentrate in the wee hours and I know it was tough as at 1.45am I was seen veer off the track!! If there had been a tyre wall I would have ploughed right into it! LOL! Thankfully someone got my attention and got me back on track!

    Rambo, Marilyn Monroe, Forest Gump, Dorothy (Wizard of Oz), Optimus Prime, Tinkerbell, Minnie Mouse, Lara Croft, Snow White, Puss In Boots, Sleeping Beauty, Ben 10, Audrey Hepburn, Royal Guard, Jedi Knight, Sith and Princess Fiona all were in attendance and many teams were heard comment on the costumes. This year the teams voted the prizes, not the organisers. We were not allowed to vote for ourselves, so it made it fun having to look around closely at others camps and themes. The boys with the Tu tu on their heads (it was their baton) made us laugh, but the team who squeezed the rubber chicken all night as they ran around the track won best baton, due to it's complete annoyance! The quiz was a bit of fun, and guessing the mystery eyes was in

    Well, I don't think that things could have gone much better this weekend. As usual I'm tired, but its a happy and satisfied tired. You guys, all the SAFFer's and associates (the SAFF Reserves?), were fantastic.

    Having the campsite in an organised layout was a great thing for the team. I think there's a future in events organisation for young Padme. And I'm saying that as one of the 'old' faces :p

    AD has covered pretty much covered everything in her report. It was the little things and attention to detail that made the campsite a treat. Having the Wicked Witch's feet sticking out from Dororthy's tent was classic :)

    Here's the cast of the 2010 Relay for Life

    Thanks TK & Kooky! It was a great weekend!!

    I know DM, you have to look really hard, but you can see a tent in there... ;)

    Had a good 9 hours sleep last night, but still feel like I have hit by a truck! And now I look at the 'clean up' here, and am wondering if tomorrow is soon enough! LOL!
