The time is now, the time is near, fundraising time is here

I’m not a fan of doing this, but:

I leave for a two-week-long trip to Traverse City exactly three weeks from today, and so it’s time to start the fundraising drive. I’ve been able to attend prospect tournaments and training camps since 2010 with your assistance, and I am ever-grateful for your support.

As such, I’m going to try to raise approximately $2,000 to cover the cost of 14 days’ worth of hotel stay at about $125 a night, the usual groceries and supplies needed for the stay and gasoline costs, which average about $3 a gallon here in Michigan right now.

I can’t do it on my own, so I need to kindly ask for your assistance.

As per usual, the easiest ways to donate involve Paypal at or, and you can always email me for my address if you’re a send-a-check person.

We’ll also be talking about blog design and revamping TMR to get it ready for the regular season shortly, but I wanted to get the fundraising going ASAP as there are only three weeks’ worth of fundraising time (the date kind of snuck up on me).

Thanks again!
