The 5th Amaz!ng Meeting is going to happen in January, 2007, and we - the staff of the SFN - feel that it is important that we have an "official" representative there.

And so it is that we ask for your help to send Kil to TAM5.

At the above link, you'll find more details and a button for making a donation. We thank you for any support you can provide, over and above the thanks we offer to all our members for just being members.

[Please use this thread for comments, thanks.]

My heartfelt thanks goes out to those of you who have already donated to get me to TAM 5.

We got off to a great start but we still have a ways to go and any amount donated gets us closer to our goal. I only have until mid November to take advantage of the $50 dollar discount for early registration. I know that seems like plenty of time, but it would be really cool if we could wrap that part up early. After that comes the traveling and lodging expenses which I will need by mid January.

Again, any amount that you can spare that will allow me to represent your SFN at TAM 5 would be greatly appreciated…

Thanks again,

Kil

We will, it goes without saying, expect a minutely detailed report on every minute of it. Minutely detailed, that is, not detailed minutely.....

Just to let everyone know, we are now more than 2/3rds of the way to our goal for sending Kil to TAM5!

Thanks again to everyone who's donated so far!

An update: we're about 80% of the way to our goal, but we've been stalled there for a couple of weeks now.

So close and yet so far. Wouldn't that make a great song?

Okay, somewhat more than a month left, and we're still mostly stalled. Just 27 people donating $5 each would do it for us.

You know, that approach was briefly considered when America's moon program was first being planned. Good thing they came up with the idea of faking the moon landing in Hollywood, eh? (Hey! Have we investigated just having Kil fake going to Tam5? I could write up some fake reports for him to post -- that's my forte. Or is he going to fake it on his own, and keep our Big Bucks?)

We'll send you some pictures of Kil so you can go to TAM5, and photoshop Kil into some of their pics. I am certain Kil is fully capable of making up his own adventures....

See you there and BTW, I feel you'll be a friend among strangers to me. That includes anyone you bring so if your wife makes it, she'll be my friend whether she wants to be or not.

I know what you mean. I did feel a bit like an outsider at TAM last year, but the event was so cool it hardly mattered. (At least you have lots of posts on the JREF forum. I didn't know any of those people.) Michelle will be there (though she is technically not my wife.) So will Boron10 and his girlfriend. The more of us the merrier!!!!

Hey, I don't want to be the only one displaying our colors!
