    Where would we be bowling? Since Professor Bowl is closed, or did it not close???

    I'd say the Saturday one?

    I can do it (I'm 90% sure)

    probably could count Denise and Gary in as well???

    Maybe Darren? (If it's late enough in the afternoon)

    Unless there there happens to be weekend training at the academy you can count me in, and maybe some of my family.

    Saturday, definitely.

    Okay everybody, I have us signed up for Saturday at 1 pm. Here is the link : You have to click on the "more" link under "Team Rank", look for ArkanSith, and then click "join team". Yup, just as complicated as every other year. :) Anyhow, please sign up ASAP, we have a month to raise the funds for this. Thanks guys.

    Upping this. It's in two weeks, and we still need 1 more team member and $1000 more dollars.

    I'm trying to raise some money, but it looks like it'll probably only be $100 and most of that will be mine. Guess things are pretty slim right now.

    Kyn, $100 is the minimum requirement, so that's okay. I hear ya, I will be fronting all of my part as well. Tough times...


    I wanted to remind everyone that even if you're not signed up to bowl, we welcome you to come out in costume to support the team. It'll be a blast. :)

    I got an e-mail from BBBS today, thought I would post it. Our team is one of the ones coming up short. We have until March 15th to come up with the money. Remember, this is for a good cause, and it is tax-deductible. Please help our team! Here is the e-mail:

    Dear Team Captain:



    We sincerely appreciate your commitment to help Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Arkansas through your participation in the 2009 Bowl for Kids Sake. Your fundraising efforts truly make a difference in the lives of over 830 kids in Central Arkansas. There are two weeks left in our fundraising period, and though we will not reach our event goal of $120,000, we remain committed to raising as many funds as possible. We hope that you will make one last push to raise the minimum contribution of $400 per team.



    As of today, 56 teams remain short of their team goal. We are depending on you more than ever before to honor your team commitment and help us to continue to serve the children of Central Arkansas. We truly appreciate your commitment and would be glad to help you reach your goal in any way that we can. DEADLINE MARCH 15, 2009.



    With warmest regards,



    Lakethia

    The easiest way is to go to our team site and donate online, http://boards.theforce.net/arkansas/b10641/29657688/p1/?19. I will have to call Ms. Glen tomorrow to get a mailing address.

    Hope I didn't screw up by leaving my $100 at the table with one of the ladies there... though she gave me an envelope to fill out with our fanforce name on it. So was that ok?

    That's fine, and our total so far is $100, so I assume that was it. :)
