Here comes the hard part: Fundraising

It’s been three weeks since I returned from my long-haul-COVID and gallbladder surgery-related hiatus from blogging. TMR is up and running again, and I am hoping and praying that my health will continue to improve as we get closer to September.

Now I need to ask for your financial assistance, because my financial reserves are extraordinarily limited, and my advertising agreements are up in the air.

My hopeful goal is to raise enough funds to pay the web server bill that’s due on August 31st ($600) and to raise enough funds to attend the prospect tournament and main training camp in Traverse City on your behalf (~$2,500).

That’s going to require help on your part. I have absolutely no clue whether any of it is feasible, but all I can do is ask, and ask again, and hope and pray.

If you’re willing to lend a hand, no matter how small, it would be greatly appreciated. The goal here is to 1) sustain the website and 2) get up to the prospect tournament and training camp, but there’s hope regarding some 3) sustainability longer-term as well.

So if you’re willing to help, is a place you can donate, is another place you can donate, and quite a few of you like using my email,, because you don’t need to sign up for PayPal or Venmo to use Giftly.

I can’t do it without you, and I hope that those of you who’ve stuck around the TMR community are willing to lend a hand. Let’s see where this goes. We’ve done it before; let’s try again.
