Introducing: The 4405 MFS RACE-A-THON!



For the King of the Hammers 2010, we are taking pledges to land-use organizations depending on how far the 4405 land-use buggy makes it in the race!

YOU pick the amount pledged per mile and YOU pick the organization to donate too!

KOH is 135 miles long this year, so if you pledge 20 cents per mile, that's $27 to the organization you picked as long as Travis makes it thru the entire race!

Directions:

1. Pledge anything you would like per mile made in the 4405 during KOH, and pick the organization you will pledge too.


2. If you do not have a pirate4x4.com log-on, you may e-mail your pledge to me: [email protected] and I will post your name here unless you want it anonomous.




We will take pledges up until Febuary 11th, and I will also be taking pledges on the lakebed... Please pay your pledge amount by March 1st.


Help keep public lands open to the public!



THANK YOU!

Kurt

For every mile made by Travis Carpenter in the 4405 MFS Land-use buggy:

I pledge $1.00 (Possible total $135) to the Blue Ribbon Coalition.

If Travis wins KOH in the 4405:

I pledge an addtional $200 to BRC (total of $335)

Gutter Ball (<20 miles made)

I pledge $50 to BRC


EDIT: Many people are not aware that my team, OV ROCKSPORTS, has another driver: Brian Tilton in the LCQ.

If Brian Tilton makes the main race: I pledge $100 to the Friends of Eldorado National Forest.

Great idea, Kurt!
If you can, please work up a more approved list of who can take donations... I'm more inclined to donate to an approved non-profit that pays the non-profit and helps with taxes, and I've seen first-hand the complexities of fund-raising for organizations that aren't non-profits, and the IRS audits to the organizers that can follow.

I'll pay $2.50/mile that Travis completes in his MFS Land-Use buggy, in donation to the Rubicon Trail Foundation. There's no need for a gutter bid -- I know Travis, Stephy, Trout, and MFS will get him to the starting line and well into the race!

Awesome, flippin' Awesome idea Kurt. You keep coming up with these winner ideas, all in the spirit of saving trails. And choosing BlueRibbon Coalition as your primary non-profit donation is absolutely the right idea, as we need to build that big dog into the baddest dog in the country. Not just for one trail; but for our entire sport, and only BRC is all sports; all states; all trails.

So let's keep the BlueRibbon pledges coming as our primary fund-raiser. I'm in, as always. But yes, for those who are not individual members of BRC or choose to support something else, that's cool too. It's all about access.

Congrats, Kurt. This may be one of your best ideas yet.
I'll get the word out elsewhere as well, including the BlueRibbon magazine.

thanks, Del

Kurt, my man, your idea is spreading FAST. I think folks see the value in this; not only for the race/rock get-it factor, but for the Travis, MFS, land use factor as well. This is bitchen.

Travis and us are bringing "value" to the race, as well as attention. Land use gets attention; KOH gets even more attention. This is good stuff.

thanks again.
I blogged it all over the place, including my blog here: http://jeepndel.blogspot.com/2010/01/land-use-pledge-for-king-of-hammers.html

thanks, Del

For every mile made by Travis Carpenter in the 4405 MFS Land-use buggy: I pledge $1.00 per mile to Montanans for Multiple Use (MFMU) If Travis wins KOH in the 4405:
I pledge an additional $100 to BRC
Now THAT is what I call totally cool mixing it up; sharing the help. Thanks to all who are jumping in on this GREAT idea. It's all about access.

Great idea.
I will pledge 50 cents per mile to BRC.
When they win, I will donate another $50.00 to UFWDA.

I wish I had known you were getting ready to put this out, as I would have liked to put it in the Access Army Times.

I think I will work up a short mid Jan newsletter, so people can see it prior to KOH.

Dave Cole posted this in General 4x4:

I will pledge $2.00 per mile for Travis ($270 potential) and will also get the ball rolling for three more teams. The first three teams to get on this band wagon will also get $1.00 a mile from me.

Support the Blue Ribbon Colalition!!!

That looks like a challenge to other teams! :smokin: GET IT!
