    pay-pal is [email protected] kind of hard to type so let me break it down for ya [email protected] or mailing adress is Paul Rasberry 664 Broadmoor Ct. Grimesland N.C. 27837 if you go pay-pal just add message of who you are and what it is for, i will keep a detailed log of who has sent $ and when it was received. Now i'm thinking that you don't have to send money to participate what do ya'll think yes or no? However i do think we should raise the $ before the challenge ends at least and everyone can see what they are ''playing'' for and to keep the non-placing participants from not sending the money. I will keep close enough tabs on it to inform everyone when we have enough $ and maybe a little extra to cover shipping of the plaques, expecially if one has to be shipped to the Netherlands....

    Sounds good. I think $5 per person regardless of how many participants (assuming there will be more) will allow enough money for the plaques and the shipping of them.

    Re: lets do a squirrel challenge?

    Is this idea dying or what? Everyone seemed real interested at fist then we really start trying to put something together and need a little money to do so and now there is only a few interested. lets go ahead and get something in stone, if you are interested and want to participate with the $5 in mind then lets get a real ist started, or if everyone wants to scratch the whole 1st, 2nd, 3rd, place thing and just post picks of squirell mounts that will be fine also, my main concern is for everyone to have fun and enjoy the art,i will have right much time invested in this, which is fine but only if this is what everyone wants.. I don't want only a few interested and not collect enough $ for the cause and then have to return $ to several different people because of lack of interest. just seems like a waste of time if this be the case. ALL INTERESTED PARTIES, GET ON BOARD AND LETS TALK IT OUT!!!!!

    I went through the posts on this subject and it appears we have 18 people that say they want to participate.Lets get it all finalized ,set the rules and date deadline. Don't let not being able to posts pics stop you cause someone can post for you or we can walk you through it.IT'S $5 ,Thats less that a whopper value meal.

    Re: lets do a squirrel challenge?

    on this subject page 5 and the forth post is pay-pal acct. info and also a mailing adress, in snowhare's case i say just waiver the $5 because of the overseas thing if not then it sounds to me like snowhare will have $9 invested in this thing, i don't mean for people to start tripping i just want to get it going if we are to do it, thats all.
