    We would be happy to make a donation, but another idea we have is:

    What about seeking out a sponsor to cover the costs of the Web Space and a banner that could be used for planning meetings and the Post event gathering. Companies that come to mind are ski companies, hiking related companies (REI, EMS, etc..) $500 a year would be cheap advertising dollars for them.

    We’ll have to wait a few weeks to get an idea of our stats and the views that the company could expect.

    Our renewal will come up before then. But this is a good thought.

    The drawback is the fear that the event would start to be commercialized. Of course, if the reader of that statement has that fear, the good news is that they have an opportunity to avoid all that by donating, right? :flag:
