As you can see, this is a seriously challenged team. (That doesn't sound right.). Although, I think it was Brett who mentionned he might start running. Hey Randall, how about posting the teams on page 1.
Norm, teams are list in the Nemesis Challenge 2 thread. You can ask Chris to add Team Sparrow to it, you might need to hunt him down over on Facebook.

Hey Guys,

As this may be our last Disney trip for a few years as a complete family, I decided to go off the reservation and do something a little different. I booked Discovery Cove and the Dolphin swim on August 25th (my b-day for those that want to send gifts.). We may also do a day at SW or Aquatica since it is included with the cost of DC. Have any of you guys done the dolphin swim? We have talked about it, but DD was always too young or we just couldn't fit it into the schedule. Any suggestions on what to do t DC?

Well the rumors of another 24hr day at Disneyland and Magic Kingdom are swirling around (rumors).... So since we should be in Orlando to start our trip on the 24th, the wife and kids, have decided that this could be a fun way to spend the 1st night of our vacation! I told them that lots of folks said the leap day event was crazy, they didn't care... So Dad had to make a plan...... So looks like we will hit the road around 3am on the 24th , drive to Orlando, mess around town for a bit, check in to the hotel later in the afternoon, then crash untill about 9pm... I was able to score a 9:55pm 'Ohana reservation, so we can stuff ourselves then head over to MK for the rest of the night. If the rumors are true the park will close at 6am, so seeing sun rise from the park could be cool too...... What say the dads? have i lost my mind?

I'm sitting in the linai (sp?) at my mom's house in Florida overlooking the pond and the 13th green in their retirement complex. It's a short par 4 with water to the right and a grass bunker protecting the short pin placement today. It has seen it's share of birdies today. Although I'm stuck working all day, I could get used to this.

I saw the pictures of the waffles and the word "staycation" before I looked to see who posted that. I thought, "hmm.. this looks like a Norm creation." I was right.

Yup! Absolutely crazy. What are you going to do if the park closes at 10? Dinner at Ohana and back to bed. It is a good excuse to get there though, so I'm with ya.

Happened to look at the Port Canaveral Cam and there appears to be a large fire off in the distance. They reported brush fires in the area, wonder if this is one of them.

EDITED: Found on Brevard News that it is a brush fire near the Cape. No immediate threat to the Cape so they are letting it burn out. Interesting video though.

I'll call him and see what the numbers look like.
I can certainly make sure he has some available for Labor Day. A happy anniversary present from me. Just remind me a few weeks before and let me know how many so I can let him know to hold them out. If I can get a few before then, I'll send them over. I also promised Philip a few, but I'm not sure he dug the tunnel yet.
Sounds good. I'll message you a few weeks before that.

Thanks. I made enough for 5 waffles. They are also good with nutella and fruit for lunch (like at Sleepy Hollow).

Sounds like a great idea. We did the 8:00 AM to 11:00 PM at Epcot, but never saw the sunrise in the parks.

Sounds like a great view and great place to retire. How far from WDW?

Maybe it's another Carnival boat on fire.

I think it's about 2 or 3 hours. Port Charlotte, FL. Mom's place backs up to I-75, but with the fountains running you don't hear it too much.
