MAD Morehead City Postponed

MAD Morehead City 2019 is being postponed. At this time we do not have enough volunteers to plan an amazing day for our military families and rather than host an event that is not up to our standards, we have elected to postpone the annual event in Morehead City.

Our plan is to spend the next year actively recruiting new volunteers to lead the chapter and to come back in 2020 better than ever.

Thank you for volunteering or donating over the past 14 years and for making amazing memories for our military families.

MAD events in Southport, Tidewater and Charleston will be held as planned.

I have received a ton of messages, emails, phone calls and texts as you can imagine....

When we reconvene Morehead City (keep in mind this announcement is ONLY for MHC and does not affect Southport, Tidewater or Charleston) we will need volunteers in the roles of:
Chapter Leader
Food and Beverage Leader
Site Leader
Volunteer Boating Leader
Family Activities Leader
Fund Raising Leader

Each of those committees will need volunteers as well which is why we had to postpone this year. We ran out of time to fill these key roles in time to pull off an event this year.

I am one of the original founders of MAD and this pains me like you would not believe, but it was necessary. We are victims of our own success in that the event has outgrown an all volunteer organization's capacity. We need new ideas, new energy and new people. We have been riding the same 6-10 people for the better part of 14 years now and it is time for some new blood.

When we come back in 2020, it will be a scaled back event but it will live up to the standards we have set.

A very good point. Thanks to all of those who got this started and carried it on for so long, they all did a great job. Let's not let them down.
