So Camo and I were bantering back and forth the other day regarding all the donations Pirate4x4.com generated for Blue Ribbon Coalition. I was impressed; not only were Lance and Camo supportive of the effort, they led the charge and raised $20,000 in 3 weeks for BRC towards the Eldorado NF DEIS response.
One thing led to another during the conversation and at the end of the conversation came a bet. Camo bet me that I could not raise $20,000 for COHVCO by Dec 31, 2007 to help keep trails open in Colorado; COHVCO is Colorado specific and closest to our land use issues. If I lose, I get nothing, and I'm sure he will rub it in my face forever, but at least COHVCO will get donations to keep trails open in Colorado - which is the point of the bet. HOWEVER
if I win, Stay The Trail
/COHVCO get 3 months banner ad space on Pirate for free in order to help grow COHVCO memeberships and Stay The Trail
So here's the deal, I need everyone's help to beat the Pirate4x4.com challenge. Give your soda pop money, Starbucks money, beer money, lunch money for one day to COHVCO to help the cause - HELP KEEP TRAILS OPEN IN COLORADO! If I did the math correctly, it only takes $5/person on this board alone to beat the $20,000 goal.
