Now, to the meat of the subject. Recent IRL expenses have caused my savings (money) to cease to exist. Those funds were going to be used to get me to Nova Open 2011 to represent the competitive Black Templars community. I was really looking forward to going, but alas, I'm not sure that I'll be able to make the needed money to buy plane tickets and pay for the hotel in a month. So several readers suggested that I create a donation button. I was iffy about it because I feel bad taking money from my readers, but to be honest, my intense desire to attend this tournament caused me to relent. There already has been an out-pouring of support and I truly appreciate it everyone!
So here is the deal: Below this entry, you'll find a Paypal donation button that is linked to my verified account. By clicking that button, you'll be brought to a website in which you can make a donation to send me to Nova Open. I will not spend any money received until I have sufficient funds to buy the plane tickets and pay for my hotel (or other arrangements). If for some reason I'm not able to attend the tournament due to insufficient funds, I will refund all donations to the persons from whom they came. I will not keep a cent if I don't make it out to Nova Open. There is zero obligation to donate. But every little bit helps! Thank you all very much in advance and I hope that if I do make it to Nova Open, I can do our amazing Chapter justice!
