LEGEND SOCCER COMPANY
Do you like soccer (or, as the rest of the world calls it, football)? Dirk does in a big way, and it has become a family affair.

Dirk's son Roland and 2 friends have started Legend Soccer Company,  developing innovative, sustainable soccer gear (and only soccer gear). Learn about Legend Soccer Company at the link above. Dirk not only endorses Legend Soccer, he's involved with it - "and not only because Roland is my son."

He comes to my home town & I will be gone.

I work with our youth at church and will be at summer camp with them.

If any of you want to not only see Dirk but travel to a great city this would be a good one to attend. Louisville has lots to do.

I wish I could be there to meet any of you planning to attend but my church comes first.

Take care,
Donna

....I just have this feeling that there won't be anymore chances to meet Dirk this close to where I live...

Soo, I'll say CONGRATS Roland ! And THANKS to Dirk!...for sharing his "journey" through life, thus far...and much more with all of us ! And wish Dirk & family ALL the VERY BEST,always...*here* and not in person...

Sincere Warm Regards,
Take Care & Hugs ( and I won't get a hug either...)
Christy

*sigh*...just can't put in writing what I want to say...doesn't sound right so I'll leave it at this.......not much of a blogger either...

A bit on Wunderfest here:

https://www.hobbytalk.com/bbs1/showthread.php?t=224988

The photos are mainly of the models, but the last link (at the bottom) has a photo of Dirk (last photo). I like the description of Dirk by "PhilipMarlowe":

"He was an incredibly personable, funny, and charmingly eccentric guy."

I liked the "charmingly eccentric" part - but I always consider being called eccentric to be a compliment

Thanks for the link.
Yes I always take 'eccentric' to be a compliment!

Grrr, I still can't see that photo though - it just keeps saying
