Spring Packing Event

117 BOXES PACKED AT THE EVENT!!
More arrived over the last two weeks, and more boxes were packed, and now 125 BOXES WILL BE SHIPPED OUT!! THIS SETS A NEW RECORD FOR THE HIGHEST NUMBER OF BOXES EVER SHIPPED IN A FEBRUARY EVENT!! WELL DONE TEAM!!

Our Spring Packing Event was hosted this year by Sea Dog Brewery, a new and fantastic restaurant located on the south end of beautiful Treasure Island, Florida. For those that were in attendance, you can vouch for the awesome location and even more so for the food and drink upstairs. In case the manager staff looked familiar, you were not mistaken. Charlie and Victor were the managers at WingHouse back at our 10th anniversary event. When they got the new Sea Dog restaurant opened, Charlie reached out and said they wanted to hold an even there. And boy did they ever! The weather was wonderful, the crowd was incredible, and the event went smoothly and very successfully. A huge thank you to Charlie and Victor and the crew at Sea Dog Brewery! We will definitely be back!

We had our usual packing of goodies, candy, snacks, books, magazines, toiletries, you name it, it was on the tables ready to be shipped! As the day started, there were dozens and dozens of volunteers coming in to bring goods and help us pack the boxes. A big thank you to the Ladies Auxiliary for collecting donations and coming out to help, and to the Blue Star Moms who also gave us lots of goods and dontations, and came to help pack the boxes. There were also a lot of other companies and groups who helped with donations of goods, shipping, and support as well; MBA, Pinellas County School Board, Freedom Sales & Marketing, Largo Area Historical Society, Blue Star Moms, Warner Brothers Marketing, Frankies Patriot BBQ, Michael Jurnigan, and many many more.

Welcome Home 1LT Ryan Berg!

Group News

On June 2nd, we got the honor of welcoming home another one of "our guys". 1LT Ryan Berg, commander of the Florida Army National Guard's 856th Quartermaster Support Company and the rest of his unit arrived back after nearly a year in Afghanistan. We were there with family and friends to welcome them home and thank them for their service.  Another surprise was in store as Ryan presented our founder Dave Dabney with a flag for the group on behalf of his company in Afghanistan.  Thank you for your service, Ryan!  We're happy we could send you and your crew a piece of home!

Full Throttle Magazine invited Tampa Bay Troop Support to their 17th Anniversary party at Quaker Steak & Lube.

They also gave us a great booth location on the main area (free!), and the proceeds from the 50/50 raffle too!  As a result we raised well over $300 for the day!! This will ship another 22 boxes over to our troops overseas.
THANK YOU!

A big thanks to our own Lt. "Redneck" Ryan Berg and Full Throttle Magazine's Al "Dew" Swetay for making this happen! We look forward to working with Full Throttle again in future shows. These folks at Full Throttle Magazine are truly great people and tremendous supporters of both our troops, and the biker community.

So I want everyone to go visit the Florida Full Throttle web page, and they are on Facebook too. Let them know how much we appreciate what they did for us! Let them know you heard about their support to our great effort!
