I'll gladly donate if the job comes through. I haven't seen anything regarding decals or anything that could promote the site, did I overlook it or has it not evolved to that just yet?

We keep it pretty casual around here and with occasional donations from the regular users I think board operating costs are covered.  Correct me Hank or Fringy if we need more funds.

As far as I know they are, but fringefan will have to confirm.

I don't know the status of the operating costs, but I think that its covered until 2016. 

Chad and I have been discussing me taking over the hosting account, but we haven't gotten it done yet.   I'll know more at that point.

Hank, Are you now the sole owner of this site? If so please post or PM me with your paypal email so I can send you some $$ for operating costs.

Thank you for what you do!

Yes, I own the domain / pay for it etc.

The service is currently paid through August 2016.    When I renew it, it is $6.99 per month, so $84 per year to run the site.  Cheap enough it seems, and certainly well worth it.

To keep it separate from my own funds / paypal, I set up a unique paypal account:  donations@dakotadualsportriders.com
That account will only ever be used for DDSR stuff, domain hosting primarily.

There is currently $20 in that account, so I suppose we'll have to raise some funds before long.   

If all the "regulars" threw in $10 or $15, we'd probably be good for another 2-3 years.
