I think you are but you need to double check with my other half. I'm doing a bit of a mini-update for him since he's still sick.

Exective decision (via Beth)

Rock Dash in the next in the drawing. Needs $300 to fly in from Oregon.

Let's see what we all can do :)

My wife does have authority to make executive decisions, and she is right - Rock is the next person.

Everyone donate for Rock!

Donation update:

We got close to $90 for Rock Dash at the moment. He needs $350. So we got close to $250 more to raise.

Please donate and send Rock to us. We'll treat him well :twisted:

Okay, I'm an idiot. I misunderstood how amtrack's website worked, and the tickets were considerably more expensive than I thought, $400 for a roundtrip ticket. I looked at some other alternatives, and the cheapest plane tickets I found were $319 on Priceline, but they probably won't stay that price for long. The cheapest alternative I've found (if I didn't screw up again) is to take a Greyhound bus there, which is $230. I feel really stupid about this thing, but here's what I've come up with so far:

Expedia: $320 leaving 31st or 1st
Orbitz: $343 on the 31st or leave the first, arrive at midnight for $322
Travelocity: $320
Priceline: $319

Train ticket from amtrack.com: $400
Greyhound ticket: $230

We need about $50 more for Rock Dash. Any takers? It'll be more soon if we don't get his ticket. :(

We have $197.78 currently towards Rock_Dash's $245 bus ticket.

Edit:
We have another $15 pending at the moment.

That leaves us with roughly $35 to raise. If you can please donate, even if it's a few bucks, every little bit helps.

Rock Dash's ticket has been purchased.

That leaves $60 in the account and $40 pending to enter the account. Total of $100.

We don't have enough time to buy anyone else a ticket, nor enough funds to do so. By the rules of the donation pool, this money will be donated to the Red Cross in the name of the 2006 ComicGenesis Cookout.

Update:

We are waiting on one payment to clear before contacting the Red Cross.

I've been asked about taking money from this fund for either helping people with gas, or renting a car, or renting a hotel. I've also been asked about simply taking the money and using it for cookout related needs.

Hoenstly it wouldn't be fair. People have donated over the last months to get people here, without knowing for sure if enough money would be raised. To take the remaining funds for any other use (even offsetting the cost of the cookout) just wouldn't be right.

It's one of those "the right thing and the easy thing aren't the same thing" kind of situations.

The money will be donated and confirmation displayed proudly here.
