Thank god Bendow was able to hold it together. Also, it seems like having cell phone coverage was a big help. Unfortunately here in Central Oregon I don't think we have cell phone coverage at Prineville. However, Billy Chinook has coverage with US Cellular at the first boat launch.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Colby and his Family. I don't know what I'd do if my little girl was hurt like that. She's the most important person in my life.

Come on folks, lets all donate and help out.

Yah, at first I thought it was a way to raise funds; then realized its nothing but self promotion in one the largest threads currently running. Very un-classy!

BTW: Still pulling for yah Colby, hang in there buddy; your doing great!!!

P.S. Can we get an update on conditions and what the docs are saying?

I'm sure Wakeless seen that this was not the best thread to post on unless some money is going to help out Colby. Let's just keep it going for him and not about Wakeless.

We are still all waiting for an update on Colby and wish him the best of luck and to see him on the water in the future.

A couple of our friends went to visit him yesterday and said their is not much change. He is still in a coma but has eye movement and will tense up from time to time. Alph said "Judging from his mom's reaction that doesn't seem to be a sign showing a trend in one way or the other."

Also a girl Heather is in ICU in a coma from almost the same type crash. This is according to one of our DWB members.

Keep fighting Colby!
Old    Matt (matt_c)      Join Date: Sep 2006       07-11-2007, 5:34 PM Reply   
Well the EXACT number still isnt known becuase we plan on donating some money from our tournament in August as well. The paypal donations show $4988 but the real total is over $5400 BEFORE any tournament dontaions.

No new updates on his condition. He's still in the hospital in a coma and showing some signs of improvement each week. We all hope he pulls through.

Thank to everyone who has showed their concern and support. Its amazing to see support from people ALL over the world. Simply amazing.

i no this would be quite hard but maybe somebody could talk to somebody in the wake helmet industry and every time they sell a wakehelmet donate some profit to colby, because i am sure many, including myself, are or already have bought hemets because if this tradegic incident.

keep it up colby and pull through, you are in my prayers
