I’d like to announce the first, annual “Pledge Week” for the Minnescoota web site!
After making a modest donation into this site’s “tip jar,” I learned that this was the first donation in “… a few years now.” This in spite of 174 registered users. I further learned that this site is paid for out of one person’s goodwill. Yes, all the costs come out of one person’s pocket.
That just doesn’t seem right, does it? We all benefit from this site creating a scooter “community” for us. So let’s pitch in. Kind of like public radio’s infamous pledge drives. So, here goes: “Simply put, without your pledge, Minnescoota wouldn't be here. Your support helps keep the web site you enjoy on the Internet!”
A couple of disclaimers. This wasn’t prompted by the generous person’s prodding. He doesn’t even know I am initiating this. Also, this isn’t about “look what I did.” I gave a very modest donation. Rather, this is about us sharing the cost of this great Minnescoota web site!
To pledge, there is a link about two-thirds of the way down the following page offering two ways to contribute:
So, like any good pledge drive, I propose a goal of raising $1,000 by Friday, March 10, 2006. That should keep this great site “on the air” for some time, and help recoup some past costs for the person who has been underwriting this site the whole time.
Let’s do it! Thanks in advance for your participation!

Yup, I didn't want to give, said I needed all my money for a cylinder kit, exhaust and carb jet for my Stella.... but NOOOOOOOO. The evil kitty MADE ME donate. He said he would PROMISE not to dig his claws into my seat cover for a whole year if I would just send a few bucks. He even promised to eat dry food instead of Fancy Feasts. for a whole month.
Oh yeah, and this is a cool forum and site that deserves to be supported by more than the personal generosity of the webmaster.
