*TrackDayForNoobs Paypal Contribution Account*

This is the paypal account that will be used to gather up contributions from the community to help us get noobs to the track.

Any and all monetary contributions are welcomed, I am not asking for much $10, $5 and even $1. Our community is so big that anything from all of us would add up to a good amount.

Every month I will contribute $25 of my own money, for as long as my finances allow.

The Checking account is opened at Smart Financial Credit Union. It's a free account with no fees.

1. I am the only Signer
2. I will post statements since the account opened.
3. I will show every and all transactions from the account.


Keep in mind that when you give there are some paypal fees:
Quote:
Send money Receive money
Free when the money comes from PayPal balance or bank account.

2.9% + $0.30 USD
when the money comes from a debit or credit card or PayPal Credit

(the sender decides who pays this fee).


Additional fees for cross border payments and currency conversion.


This is to give you peace of mind that the money is being used for what you placed it for.

These are the threads related to this one: http://www.motohouston.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=212121

http://www.motohouston.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=211987

Please keep this thread clean of discussions and opinions, ONLY use it to ask questions about Contributing and to let us know you have contributed. ONLY.

I would like to thank everyone ahead of time and also give special thanks to all the track organizations that have offered help.
THANK YOU.


Now LET'S GET STARTED!

I believe if you give it as a gift the only option it lets you do is choose who pays the fees, the receiver or giver.

Haha!!! You can always corner work. Virus click on the thread that Ivan posted in the OP and you can add your name there to be selected. Even though you have the EXP. the track is a blast..Even Jimrad signed up there too.

Donated $20.

Will donate another in 2 months if finances are ok.

I too think it'd be cool for the noob to post an account of their first track day experience with pictures.

I can afford the track day, but don't have the 5000 required miles....

Time to spend more time on freeways I guess....

Checked out the Fastline link and video...I am interested.
