This year, we have someone in our group that truly needs some help, is a Collision alumni, a very good guy, and is facing some serious financial burden right now, from a accident. He is to the point where he is selling his Harley to relieve some burden placed on his family. While I know what we raise won't relieve his stress, but atleast he'll know his Collision family loves their own.



On July 25, John Ashbrook aka 2005FXDC, was siding his home, and due to his own stupidity, (:rofl the scaffolding he was working off of, fell and took his drunk (speculating... :rofl ass tumbling to the ground with it. We've all, I'm sure, had some home accidents, and the last thing we want is for them to be public information, as we have some pride involved, and they are usually done with some form of our own stupidity at the helm.



But John being a over achiever, took it to the next level, with what the surgeon called "the worst bone fracture he's ever seen". You really have to admire that level of commitment from John. What John didn't think about on the way down was "this is going to be expensive", but as he passed the windows he was heard saying "so far so good!!!" Then the ground changed his opinion. I'll be posting the pics of his injury up after the initial thread is posted, and they are spectacular.





Folks, John didn't have his hand out, he didn't ask for the help, and he's kind of embarrassed when I contacted and told him what we, The Fathers, had decided to do to be honest. And I know everyone here will be in agreement, we help our own first. We always have since the "charity" idea was formed now 2 events ago, and that's the way it will always go. He's in some serious medical debt because of this accident, to the tune of around $25,000 that he is responsible for. Anything you can afford will help this guy out immensely.

To the Father's, I thank you and love you guys. Stangs is dead right about me being embarrassed as I was told "you don't have a say here" accepting this. This is mostly because everyone of us has gone through some crap at some point and I feel there's probably someone that needs this worse than I do. I've always been that guy that will go out of his way to help others and never want to ask for help for myself and that will never change.

I'll be on crutches for about 2 - 3 more weeks then into a ankle brace and the fun with pyhsical therapy begins. They said I will fully recover and I will ride again(not this year) but we are looking to get rid of some things like the bike to help out.

I truely care for these people on this forum. I'm glad that I got a PM from Silverback which led me to my first collision. I'm grateful as eff for the friends I've met.

John, we all can use a boost at some time in our life, so please understand the willing spirit of the good folks in this forum. Best wishes for a full recovery, my friend! The new venue last year was great and allowed a lot of folks to attend. Looking forward to returning!

I know this is the greatest bunch of people anywhere. My life wouldn't be the same without it. I love all of you.

Dear Haus,

You have to be very careful when your posting. This reads...

Stangs last year was awesome! This is going to fuel his ego out of control, it doesn't need help.

It should read...

Stangs, (NOTE THE COMMA)last year was awesome! This is just saying thank you for what you do Stangs and I'll be back.


LOCK IT UP!!

I heard that this this was an OK time. Guess I may try to go this year. Will be good to finally meet some of you.
