On Friday, July 3, 2015, my team and I put on the annual fireworks show at our church, Northwood Baptist, in North Charleston, SC. This show consisted of about 80 500 Gram Cakes, 140 2″ shells, and about 70 2″ comets. Below are some pictures and video from the show. I would like to thank Russ Mahaffey, Crystal McCall, Tommy & Skyler Connor, and other church members for the awesome photos and videos you will see below. We also had a drone flying over our show to record it. When I have that footage, I will make an update to the post to include this view.
Here is a slideshow of the pictures.
Here is a couple of videos:

Well I heard some exciting news yesterday at church. Our town, Summerville, SC, is organizing it’s first half marathon, called the “Sweet Tea Half Marathon“. Now if you know me, I love my tea, the sweeter the better. Thus, I am planning to do this inaugural race, on Saturday, November 15, 2014, and hoping the medal is in the shape of a big ‘ole glass of sweet tea! How cool would that be?
Here is the description from their website:
“Enjoy 13.1 miles that begins in the center of town and takes you on to our recreational running path and through some of our lovely neighborhoods ending back in the center of town. While running, you will enjoy live entertainment as well as lively water stations. Hopefully those will be memorable as you will be encouraged to vote for your favorite entertainment and most spirited aid station. Summerville has been recognized as the birthplace of Sweet Tea. With its uniquely small town feel and southern hospitality, Summerville has a lot to offer. This race will benefit a Fire and Police benevolant fund. Please join us for the Inaugural Summerville Sweet Tea Half Marathon this November 15, 2014!”
Here is information on the race.
Fee before September 1, 2014 $65
After Sept 1, 2014 $75
No registration race day.
All Finishers receive finisher’s medal and soft tech long sleeve race shirt.
Start time is 7:00am
No rain date
There will be a water station every 2 miles.
Free Parking is available in the parking garage near town hall (close to finish area)
Here is a link to the course map. It it pretty rough, but if you print it out and compare to Google Maps, you can get a better idea of the route.
The inaugural WordCamp Charleston takes place next Saturday, May 17, 2014 on the campus of the College of Charleston. WordCamp, what is that you ask…. Well… you are looking at it. It is the back engine for the website for Doombuggy Runner, called WordPress. This conference addresses concepts for both WordPress.com and WordPress.org.
There will be great speakers in three categories: Users, Content/Business, & Developers.
Admission is only $15. From speaker & coworker, Michael Carnell, this meager $15 will get you a day full of WordPress speakers, a goodie bag with all kinds of swag, a chance to network with people who are really doing it in the field, and much more. He will be doing a talk about how to secure your WordPress installation against hackers and unexpected catastrophes (3:30). Here is Michael’s bio.
This is a great place to network with other bloggers, especially those using WordPress. Register today and come join us. I will be doing a lot of A/V support at the conference, so I will be everywhere. If you see someone working a camera or microphone, it’ll probably be me, so come up and say hey!
See you Saturday!
On Saturday, April 12, 2014 I ran in the Coffin Island 5k on Folly Beach, SC. The race was a part of the The 24th Annual Folly Beach Sea & Sand Festival weekend. It was to have taken place two weeks ago, but Mother Nature had other ideas dumping lots of rain, so today was the rescheduled date. The race is still in its infancy, and we had around 80-90 runners, which was a good turn out.
The race was well organized. I have to say that because I have friends that organized and directed it. Actually it went really well. You could pre-register on Active.com or register on race day.
