JDRF River Walk-Camden

Back on the 28th of October the JDRF South Jersey Chapter held their big fund raiser walk.  It was based out of Campbell’s field, home of the Riversharks in Camden, NJ.  Kim and I were up early. 4:45am early so we could get there and be set up by 7:45.  As they say the best laid plans of mice and men went a rye very quickly.  With Sandy closing in we just prayed that the rain held off until after the walk but it did cause some last minute scrambling.  We were originally supposed to set up on the concours behind the infield seats.  Two days before the event the venue wanted to change things and put everyone down on the field.  No big deal I thought and arranged with the JDRF to have a tent set-up along the first base path near the dugout so I had relatively easy access to power.  Upon arrival I found no tent and no one to answer questions.  So after walking around the facility I found where they were assembling the balloon wall back ground.  Back up on the concourse near where we were originally supposed to be.  Only problem was it was right in the middle of the main egress from the seats to the main entrance.  Then there was no place to secure our gear and no table to set out our samples and other display items and no one to assist with sales.  So my plans for selling the team images went south very quickly.  We did our best and managed to capture 32 teams in between people walking through the middle of the set and being body checked as people walked by.  Sandy managed to wait and we encountered no rain.  Just a little on the cold side and windy towards the end.  Now let’s just hope we can generate some sales from all of this.  Not for me.  I am donating all of the profits from the venture back to the JDRF.
