    I would like to remind anyone who has a figure to donate to please send it asap. I have 2 figures so far donated and we usually go thru 12 + figures each year. (depends on diff awards)

    I know alot of us have very little cash to spare these days.
    I would just like to remind everyone that the awards every year are out of my pocket.

    The first year we did this it cost me roughly 500.00 with materials and buying all the figures. (experimenting costs alot LOL)
    Second year we had the trophy making process down a bit better so materials were easy and simple and more figures were donated so costs were roughly 225.00 *whew*

    This year I have 2 figures so far.
    Supplies cost me roughly 50.00 for bases and paint.
    Engraving each year varies on style and inflation and has run roughly 42.00
    Now figures have cost anywhere from 2.00 to 12.00 each depending on where I have to find them.

    So times all that by however many trohies we do plus costs for brochures and goodies and raffle items etc... it adds up.

    This is the first year in 3 I have had to actually say anything. So please if anyone has any figures please let me know.

    If you do not and would like to make a monetary donation I have a paypal set up for just the actual awards.

    Keep in mind the awards banquet you pay for I see nothing of. That goes directly to Pittsburgh to reimburse the cost they put up front to secure the room and dinner.

    I would hate to have to not hand out awards this year due to lack of funds. :(

    Anything anyone can do would be great.
    We should also figure out some wayt o maybe raise money thru the year for the awards to be able to go bigger and better each year. :)

    any help is most appreciated. Thanks everyone!
