    Hello all,

    this year we are falling short of the objective, for the first time, I might want to add. Here is a little reminder abaout the challenges we are facing - please consider.



    One of the things that always impressed me with our site is we never had to worry about raising the funds for the year. For a number of years we seemed to break records on how fast the goal could be achieved.

    Those days seemed to have died. We could probably point the finger at Covid or a poor economy, but the bottom line is our donating community is shrinking. A few years ago within a month we would have had over 300 individual donators. This year 2 months into the drive and we only have had 174 donations with a couple of members donating twice.

    Our yearly costs

    Server Lease $6,200

    cPanel account $772

    Domain name renewals $500 estimate
    Sim-outhouse.com 4 years @ $25 /year
    Sim-outhouse.net paid until 2028
    Ronnylarson.com 5 years @ $25 /year
    Hall18.com 5 years @ $25 / year
    Hall-18.com 5 years @ $25 / year
    ford-tri-motor.net (.com, .org) TBD

    Total $7,472

    For those of you who have donated Thank You.

    For those who have not Please Donate

    I haven't donated yet, but will do shortly.

    One thing though, out of curiousity mainly - who is Ronny Larson?

    If Ronny Larson does have relevance to Sim Outhouse, it might be worth indicating why - I've been a member for many years, but have not heard his name before - might help new folk and old timers like me. Excuse me if it's already been mentioned.

    Hi,

    no problem. Ronny Larson ("Ickie") kept Simouthouse running for many years and passed away a few years ago. It was decided to keep his old website and domain as a memorial. Hence his appearance on the list.
    I hope that's accurate.

    Cheers,
    Mark

    Thanks Mark, I remember Ickie, but didn't put two and two together. Worthy cause, no problem.
