is the sixth time that I (Hans-Ove Görtz in Sweden) and
my slave labourers (Ted Adcock and Spencer Farrow in USA)
organize the "over the pond" thing. This is not
a COG/GCE sponsored activity - just a - every year -
Basically we organize a selection and raise money to cover travel expenses for a fellow member - that will have the possibility to travel to USA. We aim at someone that have played (or still plays) an important role in GCE community and "never" have been or have the means to accumulate this kind of money to make this - a long time dreamed ride in his/her lifetime - happen. We have succeeded so far to accumulate enough money by pledgers offering EURO/USD 5-10-25-50/ea to support 1-2 travellers.
Please remember that this thing to have someone to travel over the pond is a spontaneous activity. This is not any COG or GCE pre planned activity - just us who want to participate - with pledges, travel, and
support in other ways.
COGers and GCEers can make things happen!
RULES (sort of)
You who like to make a pledge and support this idea, can inform me. Up till now members have pledged for USD 10 and USD 100 but that is not any decided or minimum sum. Unintentionally it could be interpreted as such so to be very clear - all support is welcome - for practical reasons all pledges should be not less than EURO/USD 1 (one) or equivalent.
Selection period will be until midst of February - all activities, dates and nominees will be announced on the COG/GCE-lists - nominations is welcome from November 2006. Please make contact to Hans-Ove Görtz.
Pledge period will be until middle of July 1st.
