    A lot of people raised less that $250 this year. With some work they can raise $500. We should be able to push for at east $200,000 for STP 2009

    AND..if we can get another 100 hikers or so to participate that would be a big boost as well.

    STP 08 was my first and definetly no last. My wife and and my 8 year old daughter came with me to the dinner and after seeing everybody and how amazing it was they both want to do STP 09 which will be great. So thats at least 2 more and they want to raise their own money. The challenge is on to see which one of us can raise the most.

    That was one reason I wanted a friend who had contributed to my page to be able to join at the dinner after hiking with me. I was hoping he would join in on the excitement and participate more fully next year.

    What happened was he signed up his own page - got a couple of hundred dollars of contributions himself - hiked this year and came to dinner. Now his son wants to join in next year. Seeing everyone at the dinner and having fun helps get the message out that STP is a good deal and great to participate in. It helps the growth going in to the next year.

    Maybe we need to start a pyramid scheme. Each current STPer gets 2 more people to join, who each get 2 people to join, who... After all, the STP logo is pyramid shaped.
