Our Train ride for May 22nd is a go. Here are some of the details as I know at this time. We will have 40 Shriner attendees on the train. 30 will be Shriner families and that is made up of 11 Shriner kids and the rest mom/dad/sister/brother. In addition, we will have 10 Shriners. A total of 40.
Our goal is to have a bus or vans to take us all from the Shrine Auditorium to Tempe Depot Catina at 5:30 PM sharp. We will all have to sign waivers and can do that on the way over there or before we board the bus. We will have t-shirts for everyone that say "Shriners and Union Pacific on Track for kids" In the middle of this saying is a train with the silent messenger standing on top of the train. T-shirts provided by the Motorcycle Unit. They look great.
On board we will have soda/water and sandwiches provided by the railroad. In addition they will have a TV on there with a movie playing. The train ride will be from 2-2 1/2 hrs long. Should be a great time.
Mike Folker will be on board to take pictures and we're still trying to get some media attention for this.
If we have success with this one, we're hoping to get a train for 200-300 people(Shriner's and Shriner kids).

ALL ABOARD, Mick
