Hey everyone I neglected to tell my story like all the other riders so here it is.
My name is Joe, I have resided in North East Ohio for all of my life and have been completely obsessed with rollercoasters since a young age. I don't post much around here but I can usually be found debating the conspiracy theories and memories of Geauga Lake and the latest Conneaut Lake news. I collect Idora Park memorabilia as well though I never was able to visit when it was open. I have the lead blue car from the Idora Wildcat among other park items. I spent many years working at Geauga Lake starting in 1998 until December of 2007 doing many jobs including lifeguard, guy with the chainsaw, ride operator and police officer. I am currently a full time police officer with a suburb of cleveland. If I'm not working or riding coasters my time is usually spent wrenching on a project car or surfing the interweb.
This is my third year participating in Coasting for Kids @ Cedar Point, I am thankful for the opportunity to be a part of raising money for such a great charity. Every year I look forward to this event with great anticipation. I would like to make the same offer to my TPR friends that I did on facebook, Anyone who donates to my page gets a prize. $2 gets a Geauga Lake key chain or magnet, $5 gets a GL shot glass, $20 a 4 shot glass set, $40 a GL polo shirt.
I would also like to thank my fellow riders for making the effort and taking the time to participate, TPR for a great discussion forum and club (i'm perma banned from coasterbuzz ) Any and all donors for their generosity and of course GKTW for their selfless efforts to give peace to families and children who endure so much. See you all at the point!
