Ramblin' Reck and Orange Bowl Update

Everyone,

First of all thank you so much for your support over the past few weeks. When I initially got word that the Reck was going to make it on the field, I was ecstatic for the chance to lead the Jackets one last time at the Orange Bowl of all places. However, I soon went into panic mode. I wondered how we were going to pay to get the car down to Miami because most of our funds allocated towards bowl trip expenses were allocated towards Tampa. After the past couple weeks, I've realized I had no reason to fear at all. Thanks to all of you....Georgia Tech alums, current students, and fans (including rival fans from Florida State, Virginia Tech, AND Iowa)... we have helped raise enough money to get the Ramblin' Reck to the 2010 Orange Bowl. Donation-wise, we have reached a point to where we have greatly EXCEEDED the amount of money needed to pay for both a truck rental and gas to get to Miami and we are eternally grateful for this outpouring of support.

Any money that is not used for this Orange Bowl trip will be allocated directly to an endowment set aside specifically for the long term maintenance and preservation of our mascot, the Ramblin' Reck. And if you're still interested in donating, there is still time for you to enter the drawing and win the private ride and picnic around campus in the Reck.

Once again, thank you to everyone. We could not have done it without you.

Sincerely,
Winfield Tufts
