           The Event was a huge success
         Check out some of the comments....

Kris and myself wanted to say thank you for everything!  We had and
incredible time in Cancun!  I hope I wasn't too hard on my dance partner.  We
returned to Iowa to the worst December snow storm in 100 years (16" of snow)  
what a drastic change.  Thanks again for all your help and for the wonderful
trip!

I just wanted to personally thank you for putting together such a wonderful
trip.  My sister Kristin Czerwinski has raved about you for years and has tried
to get me to go.  I was never a big country fan until this trip.....now I am
hooked!  I really appreciate all the hard work that you and your staff put in to
this trip.  I am looking forward to hearing the details of your next trip once you
get them all set and you can sign me up!  It was so nice meeting you and I look
forward to seeing you again.

I just wanted to tell you how much we really enjoyed our trip with you this

welcomed us.  We truly had a fantastic time and can’t wait to do it again.  You
did a great job and we will definitely spread the word around.  
Thank you,

My husband and I had a really good time for our first experience!  I know you

Well we made it home all in one piece.  What a wonderful time I had.  It was so
great seeing you again.  You did a wonderful job putting this together.  The
hotel was beautiful and the wait staff were super.  They couldn't do enough for
us.  I really enjoyed hanging around with Chris, Eddie, and Wade.  Thank you
so much.  Hopefully I'll see you next time!!

Jeff and I had a great time - I think it may even have topped the first cruise !!  
We are definitely in for next year.  We are going to do a 2-bedroom
Presidential for he and I and then we have decided to treat our sales team at
work and 2 couples of friends (huge MG fans who have hit some rough times),
so we will be doing between 6 and 8 other rooms!  Looking forward to it
already.  Thanks for all you have done over the years!

p.s.  I am attaching a picture from the very 1st cruise - our son is now 17, taller
than both of us and getting ready for college in the fall.  It's hard to believe how
fast time has gone.  He was upset he couldn't go this year due to being a
varsity wrestler, but he will be there next year!

Hi Nancy ... I/we hope you had a safe flight home and you have re-settled
yourself and ready to begin the event for next year :-)  I just wanted to say
again how very much we appreciated our arrangements in Cancun and all the
exciting things we were able to do.  I did not say anything to you, but my
husband (of 28 years and Jamie's dad) passed away 3 1/2 years ago with liver
cancer; in January of this year I found out I had cervical cancer and had to
have an operation - thank the Good LORD I am okay at the present moment
but I am being checked every 6th months and on top of all of this we have two
very close family members - who are dying of cancer - one with liver; the other
pancreatic - I tell you this, because I wanted you to know that what
Montgomery Gentry did to help out with Cancer/Aids/Lukemia research this
past weekend was awesome.  I am happy that you all were able to raise so
much money and I am sure there will be many more events like this one that
will be just as successful.  It is great knowing there are dedicated people
fighting for such a great cause and I was so very happy to be a part of it.  
Please keep us on your mailing list and when the one for next year is in the
planning let us know - if I can't win my next trip, I would at least like to know I
have saved enough to get there on my own and bring some extra people with
me this time :-)
I thank you, Columbia Records/Montgomery Gentry and WRNS 95.1 radio
station for the trip of a lifetime.
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Bright, Happy and Successful New
Year !!!
Regards, Sherry C. Tipton, Wilmington, NC

U ROCK!  What a great trip!  How awesome is it to have fun in the sun while
raising money for a great cause
We just wanted to say a BIG THANKS for all you do to makes things just
right.  The resort was perfect and what a staff!  We're wondering who's going
to carry our plate to the table at breakfast this morning.  Please let us know
about any upcoming trips like this.  We definitely don't want to miss out and
we'd love to help promote an event like this.  Whatever we can do to help,
you can count on us.

I really enjoyed this trip. Supporting the Benefit for T.J. Martell Foundation
was just a plus. I lost my husband 9 years ago to cancer and met many others
that the same had happened to them and others that were still fighting. I truly
enjoyed being able to have an opportunity to talk to the country artists, which
made this a golden opportunity for me. Taking pictures, dancing and talking
with the artists made them more personable and it was truly a memorable time.
It was an awesome trip and I LOVED it. Thanks for the wonderful opportunity!
