Alright East Siders, West Siders and everyone in between….I know there was some fundraising for John Beazley’s family a little while back….but while looking at my pool the other day, I thought of another way to raise some more money….

The pool water is currently 59*…pretty cold….but not deadly. I was wondering if you all would be interested in a “Polar Bear Plunge” type thing to raise more money. Maybe something like getting your family, friends and co-workers to pledge a certain amount of $$ for every minute you stay in the water…which will be timed and documented so they can pay you the amount. They can pledge anything from $0.25 to $5.00 per minute stayed.

Of course, we’ll be grilling and there will be beer. (I KNOW that’s the magic word!) I believe that if we get enough people to do it, there is potential for raising a good chunk of money for his family....or even to put away in a fund for other families in need when something like that happens.

Whattya think? Come on, between the last few ‘events’ at Dave’s house and a few runs we’ve been on, I KNOW there’s some of you that are crazy enough to do this!!!

If at least 10 people agree, then I will get the ball rolling, get the burgers and dogs and beer............and make some forms for you to have people pledge.

Let me know!!!!

:)

Awwww, come one guys!!! (and girls!) I see 41 of you have looked at this thread....you wanna do this, really, YOU DO!!!
It's a great pool...great yard, great friends. What more could you want (besides warmth!) I'd tell you you could hop in our
hot tub afterwards, but we just emptied it due to something not running right....but if you go by groups of 4 you all can
use our master bath shower!!! hahahahhaaaaa

Anyway, I was just throwing it out there. I thought it'd be a fun way to help someone out.
You guys are all "bad-as-I-wanna-be" out on the trails, but you'll let a cold pool scare you? ;)
HAHAHAAA. I bet my girl Britanny will do it!!! *wink*

No, just extra beer and a bigger towel.

I like my kahonies (sp?) Right where they are, thank you very much. Wait, what I meant to say was "come on you whimpy east siders grow a pair and then go shrivel them up." I'd do it if I wasn't a way west wider. Just to prove it, I'll donate $1 per minute that your girl Brittany is in up to 20 minutes.

I can't seem to edit the main title. I changed the first post though. I wasn't trying to exclude anyone...it's just the East Side group is who we usually
end up hanging around with and it's where we live. Hope no one is OFFENDED!!! I couldn't take another day of apologizing for being a horrible person!
HAHAHAHHAHAAAAAAA

If I was a man, I'd be completely head over heals in love with you. As a woman, you make me wish we were in college. HAHAHAAAA! Love you kiddo and thank for not being OFFENDED by being called a gorgeous hood rat skank. I guess I need to learn what the certain parts of the whole Phoenix area are like. I didn't realize South Phx was like that or that hillbilly trailer wives with muzzles were from AJ. You know, I think we could get a deal on stickers for the Jeeps that say: SOUTH PHX SKANKS

Wait.......Cold water and nakadidity......Not fair

Guy goes in the cold water, the man parts shrivel and suck up inside to stay warm and then everyone laughs!!!

Girl goes in, the nips pop up and say Hey, its a party and everyone cheers!?!?!?!?!


I say we guys go and just watch the girls swim

Hmmm, I'll have to go back and see if they're actually IN or just wanting to see you naked.

I can do this in as little as 2 weeks (giving time for people to get 'pledges' from co-workers. friends and family)

OMG she'd LOVE him!!! I bet she'd like that he pleasures women for $$ too. <--(his OWN words) She's so lonely.

So, Nate, are you in? I've got to get a hold of the other guys too. LET'S DO THIS! It won't be THAT cold! huhuhhuh

Such a gracious offer, how can I refuse. I'll be running a little late though so the rest if you can go ahead and get started without me. Don't get out of the pool til I get there though!

Okay, I need a serious moment....So, from what I gather, we have:

IN THE POOL
mingoglia-naked
TJBobby-using my ball gag
62Willy-showing up late/staying over (the offer was real, getchyer butt out here)
badfish2-sorry no DD's...coming anyway?
YJunk-are you in or just paying $2/min to see Mike naked?)
aribelin-wearing full on scuba gear


AZLugz and Bota- if you're just going to watch, then you need to show up in cheerleader outfits and cheer everyone on.

MyGreenJeep-going to video the whole thing and transfer to DVD so we can sell them!!!


Again, there will be beer and burgers/dogs! PLUS, we all get to hang out and laugh at the people in the pool!
Thanks guys! Please let me know if you're truly in...and let some of the other guys know.
I'll be PMing some of the ones I think will do it!

The answer to this question greatly influences additional participation. :smartass2:

While I understand your wanton desire to see my husband naked, Nate...Chris will be wearing a swimsuit.

As for me, I'm buying the burgers and beer...I've done my part. I don't go in till the water hits 75*.
And, except for my awesome rack, no one wants to see this body in a swim suit...too much lasagne consumed over the last 40 years.

TJXtian
02-19-2012, 11:02 AM
Well, I'm shooting for the 3rd...but maybe the 10th....it depends on how many people are interested and how quickly they answer.
I'll work on PMing the people I think will do this and I'll have an answer by wednesday.
I figure we need time for whoever is doing it to get pledges from family/co-workers/etc.

hahahaaa! I don't care if we do it in the springtime, summertime or 3am
(now THERE'S an idea, although my neighbors would probably be a bit upset!)
I just thought it'd be fun. If there's not a whole lot of interest, I'll think of something else.

I just figured if the water was cold, it'd be harder to stay in long. Maybe we could make it
that it's in the summer and see how long people can stay in the water. Like start on a saturday
morning and then see how long it goes...although I'd have 2 rules: 1.you have to leave sunday night!
and 2.if you have to go to the bathroom, we'll allow 3 minutes to get out of the pool. heheheee
