Brothers and Sisters: This site has grown so much !! We have learned so much from each other and have met some new freinds.
This site has grown so much that it has become a great expense.
Untill now, Phil and a number of brothers have beared the expense to keep he site up and running. Now it is time to give back a little of what you have gotten from the site .
I just hit PayPal to help keep this site running. How about YOU!!

This is like deja vu, like deja vu, like deja vu.
Jay, you've been a busy man. :wink:

Jay - Thanks for the reminder.
This site that Phil has started with other founding members provides a great outlet for all of us to discuss upcoming contests, contest results, feedback, issues facing sanctioning bodies, judging classes etc. along with other parts of the site not specific to competition.
With all that great info, unfortunately there are growing costs associated with maintaining the infrastructure of this growing site that should not be carried by a select few.
So, if you find that this site brings you value, entertainment, friendships etc. I urge each of you to hit that little "Donate" button on the upper right of the Toolbar to help support the costs by giving what you can.
If all of us can just remember to make small contributions every so often (monthly, bi-monthly, quarterly etc). it will make a great difference to ensure operational costs are covered.
Thanks again Jay !!!!!

Done. Great job all.
As a member who is just now, after all this time, getting into competitions, I thank you all for my education. And I thank you for the friendship and camaraderie. I hope my contribution helps.

I'm in! If I look at the money I have saved by not buying lousy restaurant BBQ, a periodic donations is nothing!

Just smacked the donate button and it didn't even smack back, that was easy. When the weather warms up I'll smack that button a little harder.:wink:
Thanks for the nudge Jay. Lets see some others, this is a great place for us all.
