On behalf of the UT Arlington Homecoming team, I would like
to thank you and the Wheelie-ing Elvi for being such an
extraordinary entry for the parade. Congratulations are in
order considering that folks are still talking about your
The excitement that the Wheelie-ing Elvi generated in the
parade was palpable with the sound of the mini-cycles and
the feats you performed. We are extremely grateful for your
participation not only to represent community support for UT
Arlington, but to elevate the enthusiasm and camaraderie
with students, alums and parents that was clearly evident
with a diverse group of parade entries like the Wheelie-ing
Although you beat me to the punch with your thoughtful
email, our gratitude is beyond measure. As a UT Arlington
alum, I am sure you are proud of your alma mater and
hopefully, enjoyed your significant role in setting the bar
for the new tradition of a fall homecoming celebration.
Maving Up in a
big way. It would be great to work with you again!

I am speechless - that poster is absolutely
fantastic!!!!!!!!! Seriously, a great pic and its
getting framed and going on my office wall. I've
received some nice stuff in the past from sponsoring
races and events, but this poster takes the cake for me.
Well, it also helps that me and my brother are Elvis
fans - cant wait to show him this too. Minis and Elvis -
doesnt get any better.
Tell all the guys thanks a lot and a very cool and
thoughtful gift! Now gotta go show it to my wife and

Bobby, you're the best! Thank the Elvi for me. It's not a
parade in Mansfield unless you are here. Even Andy
Binz said the Elvi kept everyone's spirits up on the parade
route and in the lineup.
(note: it rained hard before and during the parade, however
the Elvi stuck with it !!)

Thank you to you and all the Elvi! We enjoy having you in the
parade, and we know the audience watching it enjoys it too.
Our judges were only able to judge the Adult
and Children’s floats and they were sad not to be able to
give an award to TWFWE! The head judge wrote “GREAT” beside
your name and asked that I expressed to you how much they
enjoyed you. You were amazing and EVERYONE loved you!
Thank you so much for making our parade so much fun! I got
a lot of feedback on how much everyone enjoyed your
participation. One of my goals today was to write and thank
Would you consider putting us on your
calendar for the 2012 Wild West Festival? The date is

I am sure you will be getting calls. Some of my colleagues
from other Chambers were at the event asking about you.
Thank you for being with us.

Thanks to all of the loyal

you so much for your kind words. I teach at The Oakridge
School and my headmaster was at the parade on Saturday
night...he wants to see about getting you guys in our school
Homecoming parade next year! I'll keep your contact
information and get back with you next year about it. Also,
the text below is an email I rec'd from a spectator...it is
about your entry...thought I'd share...
Brought our 2 &
4-year old grandkids to the parade last night. We all had a
spectacular time and had a great curbside seat on West
Street - congratulations on a job well done to the planning
committee and the participants.
Just had to tell
you to please pass on to the Wheelie-ing Elvii - After the
parade we were talking to the grandkids about all the
different floats and people we saw in the parade. They
mentioned several. Of course, they don't know who Elvis
is and we asked them about the men in the lighted suits
doing wheelie's on the little motorcycles. The 4-year old
boy said - "Oh, the men with their hair on backwards?!" We
Elvii hoping to tell them directly but had no luck.
Thanks again for a delightful evening.
