I'm offering up $10.00 to start a "Guest Speaker's Fund"

Would You be Willing to Help Fund Visits/Presentations by Jerry Dilsaver and/or Other Anglers Like Him?

It's sounding like we have a good chance for a visit from fishing great Jerry Dilsaver - including an opportunity to "pick his brain" on the many topics for which he has become widely famous.

I understand that Jerry has offered to waive his usual "Speaker's Fees" which, I believe, is a grand gesture on his part. Even though he's willing to not profit from sharing his vast knowledge with us, I also believe that we should not expect or ask him to "dip into his own pocket" and pay for his travel expenses to do it.

With this in mind, I'm offering $10.00 to start a "Guest Speaker's Fund" that we could use for defraying the expenses of getting anglers like Jerry to come and share their expertise with us.

I'll try to insert a "Poll" to see if [and, if so, how much] other FAAN members would be willing to donate to such a fund.

Thanks Mike.

I have talked with Jerry and it is confirmed that he visit with us and present a kayak fishing seminar on February 2nd. Jerry lives in Wilmington and we are looking to cover his expenses for this seminar. He is foregoing his normal speaker fee as a donation to the FAAN.

How can you donate to the "Speaker's" Fund?

Tadpole-

What's the easiest way to pitch in for the "Speaker's" fund? Probably at the FAAN meeting -- this Thursday December, 2nd at Sammio’s Italian Restaurant on Raeford Road at 630pm.

The Poll indicates 4 pledges @ $10.00 & 2 @ $15.00. MLM [ that's Mike's Lame Math ] shows the current tally at $70.00 -- which is a good start for the fund.

See you at Sammio's:
2623 Raeford Rd. [ South side, just West of Robeson St. ]
Fayetteville, NC 28303
(910) 321-0000

A couple thoughts on this topic.............

I belong to a couple of other groups who have the same challenge. How we handle it is by having a 50/50 raffle at each meeting. The treasurer has a roll of ticket which he/she sells @ $2 each or 3 for $5. 50% goes to the winner and other 50% goes to speaker fund. Sometimes we have a donated item to raffle off in which case the winner gets the item and all 100% goes into the speaker fund.

From time to time I am invited to speak to various groups about the Smith River (next time in Winston Salem on Jan 18th). Most organizations offer up travel and meal money. If it is some distance, I have even been put up in a motel. What I do to help them out is bring a dozen "Allieworms" to raffle off. Yep, I know it is hard to believe Embarassed but even after they buy me a full tank of gas and meal they end up making money Shocked
