PADDLE FOR DAISY
Al’s eight-year-old granddaughter Daisy Love Merrick, after undergoing six surgeries and twenty-two rounds of chemotherapy, is currently battling cancer for the third time. As Daisy embarks on the next steps of her treatment, she will be facing several additional rounds of chemotherapy, in addition to a stem cell transplant with progressive treatments in both the United States and Israel. The estimated cost of Daisy’s treatment not covered by insurance is expected to total close to half a million dollars.
This is where you come in. On September 1, 2012, beginning at 9 am, groups around the country will meet to hold a paddle-a-thon, at which group photos will be taken and sent to the Merrick family and someone will say a prayer for Daisy before the group paddles a preset distance.
The group behind the Paddle For Daisy initiative, Christian Surfers (CS), will be building a simple and transferable template for the Paddle-a-thon fundraising event, with 100 percent of the donations going directly to the Merrick family. Donations will be received by the Christian Surfers either via check or via online donations.
Donate. Get out and paddle at the event. Show your love and support for Daisy and the Merrick family.

You have seen the waste that is current surfboard packing; packing for travel ; tell us about your experience with the old style packing materials.
You’ve decided to change the way surfers pack their boards for trips; the way the surfboard manufacturers pack their boards for wholesale shipping.
What was the process like of getting to an eco -friendly packing material : what was this road to discovery?
Where are we at?
What is it going to take to get the surfboard industry to make this simple and smart step towards multi-use enviro-friendly packaging/packing materials and away from single use plastics?

# 1) Molokai to Oahu World Championships dedicates Race to George Ramos
Keep George In Your Heart as You Cross the Ka’iwi Channel
As many of you are getting ready for your race in Molokai next week there will be one paddler missing at the start but he will be close to our hearts – George Ramos. George is the soul of this event, having paddled solo in all 15 years of the race. Always ready for the challenge and always ready to share a smile, a story and laugh.
George was recently diagnosed with stage 4 cancer and has another challenge ahead of him this year. Although he won’t be paddling physically in the channel he will be paddling with many as we dedicate this race, the 16th annual Molokai 2 Oahu Paddleboard World Championships, to George.
George has been unable to work over the last few months and as you know Cancer is not cheap. We have set up a 32::32 donation site for those interested in helping offset some of his medical bills. More importantly we ask that you keep George in your hearts as you cross the ka’iwi channel.
#3 ELL’s 11-12 team began play in the Subdivision III (State) tournament with a 7-3 win over San Bernardino Champion Highland Little League. ELL to face Aliso Viejo LL at Aliso Viejo on Sun, July 22, 11:30 a.m.
#4 WESTERN Australia’s reputation as the world’s deadliest place for shark attacks is hurting tourism and the federal government should consider lifting the ban on fishing of great whites, the state government says. The 4m killer, dubbed Brutus by surfers near Wedge Island, 180km north of Perth, mauled surfer Ben Linden two weeks ago as he surfed with a mate about 9am.
“Five fatalities in Western Australia (in 10 months) is unprecedented and cause for great alarm,” Mr Moore said.
“It won’t be helping our tourism industry and those people who want to come here to enjoy an ocean experience will be turned away because of this situation.”
