re: Fund Raising for our awesome Community Events

Dear LMB,

I read with sympathy Harperella's letter about the huge funds needed for the Spring Riding Carnival, Weathertop and other events generously sponsored by the LMB. I have a suggestion.

What if we use Sunday Night Sieges to periodically run Level 95 Skirmish Raids, with each person who signs up pledged to donate a percentage of their earnings that night to the treasurer, Bratti? In my experience, Skraids are very lucrative and at tier one not so difficult that a rusty raider won't have fun. I was thinking maybe 75-80 percent of what we earn that night could be donated, and we could do this perhaps twice a month.

If you all think this is a good idea, I can set it up on the raid tool in guild launch, to start promptly at 5PM this Sunday. It would be especially nice if everyone has the Mirkwood skirmishes open, but we can work with whatever people have available to run.

I realize this excludes lower levels, but 95s have the most potential for earning money for our wonderful community events. The thing is, if you are spending most of your game time organizing and running events, listening and making music--then you aren't earning much gold. I thought this would be a fun group activity to start replenishing our community event coffers.

I await your feedback. I have some other ideas but this one seemed most appealing.

re: $ Raising

I think the SNS idea is great and will happily pledge my loot. I'm also thinking of all those donated recipes and duplicates. Have we ever tried putting some of them on the ah fairly inexpensively and then giving the $ to the band? Or even vendoring them and giving the $ to the band?

At this point we have received an anonamous donation in the name of Shinarra (like 4 figures substantial) so we should be good for Weatherstock VI.
