I don't think it needs to be anything overly creative. Let us know what you need and I'm sure people will contribute what they can.

I've gotten so much from this site over the years that the very least I can do is help out with some of the cost.

Juro-

If you have a Paypal set up for the site, I would certainly be willing to donate some funds. I have a feeling that I wouldn't be the only one.

Made a big move last night - we're moving to a less expensive server. It's been ordered and there's work to do but it will save us quite a bit over time.

Sponsors and schwag next.

Member contributions should be a non-issue when one considers the relationships and information gained through the forum. I know of at least one business willing to sponsor.

Thumbs up 'Guided' trips

Hey Juro,

These were the informal Bread & Butter of the Forum in years past.

Get some of the experienced locals in each region to host a trip for one or more anglers. Food, drink, and a chance to learn a new fishery (or area).

Auction them off and I'm sure you'd net a grand or two. I'm sure that would help with server costs.

Tight Lines!

Brian

Brian,

Thanks for the reminder, I bought a SW trip from Leland last time we auctioned so trips. I've never taken it.

Let me start it off...

I talked to my friend Ted Lewis today.

He is a guide on the Pro Staff at Scott and a premier fly tyer.

When I told him that the forum may need help, he offered a guided trip for one person to either the Farmington River or the Westfield River.

I believe he said for late April.

Juro he said he has met you at some of the shows before.

If you set up something to start auctioning off trips let me know and I will
confirm with Ted and perhaps you can generate some funds for the forum.

You'd enjoy it - he's King of the Beach and knows some great spots.
