'fraid the evening operators pushed you down 6 places by dawn on Monday, Nadia, so this should do the trick for an hour or two.

Posting you credit card details for authorisation for US$50 from a nice man in Canada today.

It would be shame if we fail to get only a third of the way to the target. Without the £2,500 donation from your mystery person, we would have failed dismally to get RIBnet Forum users (apart from a big-hearted and generous few) to make sure Alan and the boys make it to the finish line.

C'est la vie...

Never to be repeated offer !!

OK. Let's try this then, as things are slowing down a bit.

I will make a donation of £10, for every individual donation of £10 or above, received by Nadia, between midday today (Monday 13th May) and Midday Thursday (16th May).

Just logged on to your site following a newsletter to the SOC mail list where your campaign was mentioned.

Although I'm not a RIB owner (I can hear your sighs now!) I did join the SOC send off in Cardiff Bay in our sports boat and I'm avidly reading the newsletters from Alan and the team.

I just wanted to say that it's great to see the energy that you guys are putting into this fund raising. I just hope that the same response is seen from other SOC 'supporters' in my home City of Cardiff.

Wouldn't it be great if everyone gave up their Friday night takeaway and donated the cost to SOC instead?

Although I'm already a proud owner of a 'certificate of gratitude' from SOC, my second donation is on its way. Just wanted to let you know via this web site so it gets included on the 'Ribometer' and qualifies for the 'match funding' (does anyone realise how potentially generous/dangerous this offer could be - now that it's been published to the SOC mail list!)

Look forward to seeing you all when the SOC arrives back in Cardiff.

Karen

Good on yer, Karen!

Let's hope that others like you chip in and donate the cost of the Friday evening takeaway. Every spoonful's going to help Alan and the lads make it home.

A world record for Cardiff would be seriously great. I hope the City Fathers realise what an effort Priddy & Co are in sight of achieving for the capital of Wales.

And it must be heart warming for you to know that Brian is gonna double your money! I'll buy him a beer on your behalf at at the South West gathering on Saturday...

Cheers!

Good luck

Latest totals:

With the RIBEX amounts in over the week-end:

Keith add another: £295.13 to the total raised through RIBEX

Stuart and Britt many many thanks for your help on the week-end and it was great meeting a few familiar faces again - and getting even more support from them again - and meeting some new ribsters as well - looking forward to next year.

Brian - have not charged your card for the "deal" yet"
