Check out this link:  http://www.southbendtribune.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080720/NEWS01/807200325


We are now 3 for 3!!  We won the Sweepstakes Award (Grand Prize) in our local parade back in the beginning of May.

The group then took it to Chicago Pride Parade in June and won the Grand Prize in that parade.  There were over 230 entries!!!

Now last Saturday we won at this South Bend, IN parade!!  It's been a lot of work, building it, getting money for it, traveling with it, but all of the people involved have been beyond wonderful!

Here is a photo journal of the build, in case anyone is interested.  http://www.crean.com/modules.php?set_albumName=album04&op=modload&name=gallery&file=index&include=view_album.php

Thanks everyone! Yep, every Saturday for 2 months starting this last March, we were in a cold warehouse building this awesome float!  Well, I was shooting video & photos & everyone else was working & building.  Tho' I did construct the sand castle with a little creative help from DP.  ;-)
