Just flew the transcon SFO-BOS and Cisco Kid was on my flight. There was a lot of activity while I was airborne and we are at $4950. $50 more and sccooper1 will put in his match of $5000. So far we have 37 donors.

I got in for $250 earlier today… and the best news is that my employer (Dell, if you're keeping score) is matching it at 100%. If your employer offers matching, take advantage of it! If you're not sure whether they do, most employers make it fairly easy to find out.

Thanks Pat89339. You have always been there for the Capt. Jason Dahl Scholarship. Your drive during the Chicago Seminars to raise funds and your expert advice is greatly appreciated.

A correction has to be made from a post I made earlier. The $2000 goal was met by pat89338's second donation.

Flyer Talk people meet and surpass goals for the Dahl Fund every single time. Other than Thank you...I always keep channel 9 on . I just ferried ANOTHER empty 747-400 down AND back from SFO LAX? Not as cool as the Junker...but I sure wish I could have made it a Flyer Talk charter. I had channel 9 on as I thought of all of you.

If you want to cheer the winner of the raffle, or participate in the fun in Hamburg that weekend, I've put together a small set of events that weekend:

My donation has been made.

I huge THANK YOU to Captain Denny for a great SFO-BOS flight (random 2nd flight ever with him in 6 and 1/2 years of UA flying), a great conversation post-flight, which also resulted in a reminder of this most worthy foundation!

I am not a tattoo guy and would not support any fund raiser that promotes getting a tattoo......

Donations are still coming in. We are at $10,275
