We are running a bit lower in funds than I would like.

I am open to any ideas or suggestions for things to add to the pozible page for more your average spectators.

I would also really like to do bios on everyone with photos of you and your robot. (Old photos are fine) this would result in you having trading cards printed for the day as well hopefully.

Steve

1,360 Pledged of $3,000
12 days to go...

Get your entries in people! If we don't hit the goal in 12 days, the event doesn't happen and we end up having to wait till Nationals before getting any robot action....

So far we have just 3 sportsmen robots registered... Sad

We have 9 entries on pozible so we are doing ok on that front.

On the cash side not so much.

I can enter NC again, but I'm not going to get a sportsman done in time.

I can probably even make it not explode again. Do you need another wedge?

You can pledge right now, you don't get charged for it till after the campaign has been giving the green light. This gives you another 2 weeks to sort the finances out Smile

I've pledged but I don't know if I can go. I have placement during that time and I won't know where my placement is until after your campaign finished. Not to mention I am completely flat out for the next 5 weeks.

For sportsman MDF is a perfectly acceptable building material. Ply even more so.

So there is $630 left in the campaign.

I am not going to bump this over the line. If it doesn't make the $3k I think it might be time for me to consider that there isn't the support for this or future events. Even $10 helps if you have friends who are interested in coming along and want a reserved seat.
