2016 Board Costs
« on: January 21, 2016, 12:35:40 PM »
Donations to help keep the board running should be sent to:

donations@dakotadualsportriders.com

Please use the "gift" or friends/family transfer option through paypal to eliminate the service fee.

The board costs $84 / year to run, and is currently paid up through 8/2016.     I'd ask the board regulars (and anyone else of course) to throw $5, 10, or 15 at it and we'll get it renewed for a few more years.   

If we end up with extra money we can use it to buy food at the fall rally.

Current balance is $215, which covers almost 2.5 years!  Thanks everyone.  Another $40 or so and I can pay up for three years.

Hank, Lisa has a $105 bucks in our food donations envelope.  Its up to everyone else, but I can pay pal you that.  Our plan was use the food money in spring.  But it doesn't matter either.

I'd say keep that for food. We'll have plenty for a few years of web hosting

$10 to the board via paypal
Time heals all wounds. But it usually leaves a pretty big scar.

A few more dollars showed up pushing the account balance to $259.   That's great everyone!   That's enough for over 3 years of hosting.

A quick update.  The domain and hosting expire next month, so I renewed it.  I was a little short on my estimate, I neglected the cost of keeping the domain name, so 84/ year covers the hosting, but not the cost of the domain name.  The annual total for everything is right at $119.   We had $259 in the paypal account, so I just renewed for 2 years rather than 3.  We're good for now, but not for as long as I thought!  After the two year renewal we currently have $22 in the account.

Thanks for the support!
