Default Let'* give something back to this great site!

Okay, stepping out on a limb here...I will help front the cash for the Bonneville Club decals. I don't have much, but I could chip in $25.00 or so. If we could get just a few more people to do the same we should be all set. (Come on people...it'* the cost of one dinner out, or a long drive...we can do this! We're lucky we don't have to pay a membership fee just to be on this great site!)

How many of you are willing to do the same?

If we (bonnevilleclub.com members) make a group run of some window stickers I would be happy to purchase 1 or more of them. I may be willing to front a small donation to help this along as well. Jeff, you got a great site here. You should open up a paypal accout so we can show you just how much we appreaciate it!


I know this has come up in the past. Usually everyone shows a lot of interest in it and then it just kinda disappears. Hopefully it will stay alive this time. I'm not trying to be synical. I really do hope something like this comes around. I would be proad to be sportin' the Bonnevilleclub name on my ride!

I actually have a 2/3 completed project for a business card made for distribution. Something we could maybe put at local dealers and patrs stores. They were done more for recruiting than anything but here is the link if anyone is interested.

Cool...one down, many to go. Well, that'* not quite true because there were a couple other people who posted in the first decal thread that they'd put up $30.00. So that'* more like four down.
I hope it stays alive this time too; we'll see.

I'll ask admin to make this topic a sticky and it will stay at the top of the page. The braintrust will be hard a work to try and make something happen.

I have always been a big fan of Membership. For example, my buddy is an Elite Member of TAC (torontoaccords). They charge an annual fee of $25 CDN to any one on the board. To join the club it is free but membership entitles people to a TAC business card, photoshoot, exclusive TAC server space, and a window decal as well as invites to Members only events.

Since this is a worldwide forum it is more difficult, however we can consider it or something like it. At the end fo the day it is up to Jeff Keacher to make the call. After all it is his site

I could afford $25 or 30 dollars CDN, but its the conversion to USD that gives me a heart attack....fellow CDN members will agree with me

Well, I'm not gonna vote, because I'm one of those type of people that REFUSES to put stickers on my car, and I don't wanna screw up the results.

Now, if you came up with something like plate frames with the URL on them or something, then maybe I'd consider it....

Just remember--not everyone thinks stickers are "cool"

Paypal donation button is all that is needed.

I'd fork out a few bucks to help out with the site, although im also one of these (no stickers) kinda guys. A "Bonneville Club" hanging air freshener would be Sweeeeet!
Lets get a paypal account set up and id be happy to support, after-all....with all the help and support this site has given Me, a small donation would only be ethical

Hmmm.....if we're gonna do this, we need someone to be in charge of the money. To do this, since we never get together (physically) some kind of financial report would need to be maintained. Then when these things come up (like the stickers or licence frames) we would have a pool of money to draw from. Is this something we're interested in? What I'm proposing here is a treasurer. I don't have the time to deal with it. There'* a bit of trust involved here, too. The treasurer would be responsible for opening a paypal account for the club, and be able to track the $$, and know what is seperate from his/her own personal account. Then they would be responsible for disbursing the proper amount of money to whoever is leading the sticker project, etc.

If this sounds like a good idea, I'll take NOMINATIONS by PM ONLY. Nothing posted publicly, please, and no self-nominations. With the issue of trust, we need to do it this way.
