I'll match AD with $10 for a completed sprint plus $10 for every dwarf team that PurpleChest faces during the sprint.
Posted by JellyBelly on 2016-12-03 15:09:53
Great idea! I pledge $10 if PC completes a sprint with an ARR team, but I'll up it to $15 if he does it with a non-elf team ;)
Posted by cdassak on 2016-12-03 15:13:16
$20 for a stunty sprint :)
Posted by happygrue on 2016-12-03 16:28:00
I'm in to see PC play stunty (preferably flings) for 10 US dollARRs!
Posted by happygrue on 2016-12-03 16:28:35
also: lol at jdmickleburgh, that is truly awesome. :D
Posted by PurpleChest on 2016-12-03 16:39:51
I was thinking:
For $30 I'll sprint an ARR team. I'm pretty handy with pro elves and high elves, several others don't frighten me.
For $60 I'll sprint with a team that isn't elves.
For $90 or upwards I'll sprint with one of Ogres/Flings/Gobbos/4th race based on a quick poll.
Everyone pledging gets named on the team (space permitting). I will aim for semi regular blog post support.
But it seems we have $60+ already for a fling sprint, so that looks likely.

I'll put in $50 towards a PC Fling Sprint. Plus I'd like to know when he plays so I can enter Dwarves.
Posted by Timetis on 2016-12-03 17:24:29
I'll join in to see PC play flings for 10 euros :)
Posted by thoralf on 2016-12-03 17:26:31
put 11 bucks to watch keggie's dorf games.
My tablet thinks "dorf" is "side"
Posted by happygrue on 2016-12-03 17:43:45
Bam, Keggie gets the job done!
What's the stretch goal, PC? :D
If we can get to 200 will you sprint twice? >:D
Posted by JellyBelly on 2016-12-03 18:16:41
Wow, keggie! :O I'd better make a new Box Dwarf team ... ;)
Posted by bigf on 2016-12-03 19:29:23
count me in for $10 too
Posted by keggiemckill on 2016-12-03 20:19:12
If we get it to $200, will you sprint with Flings, Gobs, and Vamps?
Posted by PurpleChest on 2016-12-03 23:55:16
That's $135 so far. Wow.
I don't know whether to be flattered or insulted.
So, it's flings (a lot of that is fling/stunty dependant).
Hmm, for $250 I'll also sprint with Gobbo's.
Surely we won't reach that.
Posted by happygrue on 2016-12-04 00:31:43
Posted by DrPoods on 2016-12-04 00:53:04
I'll dump in $5.
That seems funz.
Posted by Miceycraft on 2016-12-04 10:13:01
I'm down for another $10 dollars and see if we can push for the Gob sprint too! Good luck PC :)
Posted by Miceycraft on 2016-12-04 10:24:52
Also there is now a link to this on the ARR group so hopefully more coaches will see this and doonate!
Posted by jdmickleburgh on 2016-12-04 11:22:00
Up my initial to $20.
Maybe if we give PC enough sprints then his dwarves will be out of the box for the whole of 2017. I'd buy that for a dollar.
Posted by ben_awesome on 2016-12-04 17:11:57
I'll give £5 for this.
Posted by Superlynx on 2016-12-05 07:25:41
I'll chuck in 10€.
Fun times ahead.
Posted by thebursar on 2016-12-05 12:59:11
Put me down for €12. That will make it an even €25 combined with the Ranked Amateurs FC charity drive.
Posted by jdmickleburgh on 2016-12-05 16:07:43
How short are we from $250?
Posted by ArrestedDevelopment on 2016-12-05 16:14:50
By my count we're on $195 so far (with the addition of Lorebass' $8-10, taken as $8, from HappyGrue's blog).
Posted by keggiemckill on 2016-12-05 16:51:44
He needs to complete the Sprint to get that cash though right?
Posted by Verminardo on 2016-12-05 17:21:43
I'm in with 10!
Posted by happygrue on 2016-12-05 17:35:31
PC to confirm he's clear on that, but as I understand it yes: 16 games with one team, and he can't/shouldn't concede any either... :D
But PC has been on board with getting donations and I'm sure he'll tough it out for the cause. No fear!
Posted by happygrue on 2016-12-05 17:43:46
For the record, ARR first fundraiser (two years ago) raised $480, and last year's raised $262 total. Both have been a joint HLP-ARR effort. We're close to that total just on PC's sprint so I'm hopeful we can pass last year's total but we'll see!
Posted by Valen on 2016-12-05 18:25:20
$30 here guys :)
Posted by pokrjax on 2016-12-05 18:58:54
I'll give £5
Posted by PurpleChest on 2016-12-05 21:30:06
Which takes us to $250. Wow. So I guess Goblins too then.
Also some conditional cash.
thoralf 'put 11 bucks to watch keggie's dorf games'
and jdmickleburgh '$10 for every dwarf team that PurpleChest faces during the sprint'
both not countd as pledged.
Also do we need another stretch goal? i'm not sure what else i can/could do?
Posted by SpecialOne on 2016-12-05 22:15:17
10 USD in the pot!
Posted by happygrue on 2016-12-05 22:28:51
Well, you surely don't need to but given that you are raking it in perhaps a pie in the sky goal wouldn't hurt if you felt up for it...
EDIT: ARR fundraiser record is 480... if you pledged to play 1 game of ogres NEXT season (Feb/Mar) for every $30 that we beat the total fundraising haul recARRd then a full ogre sprint would be about breaking the $1000 mark... that would be a fun challenge. :D
Then a haul of $600 with all your various dollars and bonus dollars plus the other part of the fundraiser would mean you'd play a few games of ogres next season. Truly a pie in the sky goal for all of us to get to 1000 but maybe... :D
Posted by garyt1 on 2016-12-06 04:13:00
I think an Ogre sprint if it gets to 450 dollars would be good fun.
Actually Ogres are not so desperate at very low tv.
Posted by ArrestedDevelopment on 2016-12-06 08:08:21
I think Ogres is probably more than a long shot, PC is already locked into 32 games with stunty races, possibly more if he ends up with a few disastrous games on either team early on.
The goal of the fundraiser is to raise money gents, not recreate the 12 tasks of Hercules ;)
Posted by jdmickleburgh on 2016-12-06 08:10:41
12 tasks of Hercules... 12 months of the year... the next clue is in the White House, let's go!
Posted by BlackOrc on 2016-12-06 08:54:09
here with 10$
Posted by ArrestedDevelopment on 2016-12-06 09:38:56
Currently, I count us at ~$270 pledged (taking both the euro and pound as dollars for simplicity, and lorebass' as $8 for ease of addition to the bursar's $12). I haven't included Thoralf's $11, I'll check with him. And JD's pledge may rise obviously.
Posted by jdmickleburgh on 2016-12-06 14:10:11
game 1 played by chest's goblins. And the filthy lucker draws flings!!
I ask you... I'm off to make a dorf team
Posted by Manzoo on 2016-12-09 03:20:01
10 dollars if anyone can kill or maim John, Whirling Death, annoying little git!
