Fundraiser Target and my Promise

Leave a comment

In today’s practice I (Coach Mike) stated a goal for our fundraising activities through the three Fortino’s events and the Annual Chili Cook-off of $15,000.

Your efforts on fundraising will have immediate benefits to you as we are purchasing two new boats (quad and double)  this year with the expected delivery of those in time for CSSRA.   You could be racing these boats!!

To give you an added incentive to reach that $15,000 target I promised that if you meet the number that I will dye my hair green for CSSRA.   Yes, long flowing hair in Westdale green.

So imagine that at CSSRA you have the satisfaction of having raised $15,000, your butt is firmly planted in a new quad, or double, and Coach Mike is roaming Henley Island with green hair.   The only thing that would put this over the top is winning a medal.  If that does not sound like the most amazing sequence of events then I don’t know what would amaze you.

I think we need to up the challenge and get to a number of $17,500.   The challenge is over to Tom and Peter to come up with their own commitment to the effort.

Maybe green and gold outfits to wear at CSSRA.  They’ll look stylish while escorting you down to your races.

Something like this except with black diamonds:
