This is our 3rd annual Money on the Board!  For those who are new to this, we pledge X amount of money toward X achievement on the part of the Wings.  My pledges have always been just per round the Wings make it through, but many others get a lot more creative than that.  Some pledge per blocked shot, goal by a certain player, what they have for breakfast (jk), etc.  Come up with your own pledge for any amount, and don't be shy.  

Once there are no more opportunities available to add to our total, you add up what your pledge is and send it to me. The amount doesn't matter - it all goes to Children's Hospital and they will be thrilled with whatever contribution we can give.

Thanks so much to past, present and future participants, whether in donations or spirit and

 

LET'S GO WINGS!


Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

YEAH!  One of the best traditions ever.  You know I'm in!

 

I'm going with a little twist on my usual.  (Don't worry- I'll keep my own running tab.)

 

$1 for each goal scored by a player after whom I have named a hamster (assuming he's still with the Wings and not scoring for another team).

An additional $10 if any of the above goals is the GWG goal that gives us the series win.

An additional $50 if it is the GWG that wins us the Cup.

 

I will again keep a running tab in my signature. 

 

Thanks, Catherine, and GO WINGS!!!

Still a helluva'n idea. THANKS again, Catherine.  I have none of Karen's creativity when it comes to how to set this up, and we only have two dogs already named Dave and Mylie; so I'm gonna say $5 per goal and $5 per shutout, throughout however far they go.  Yeah, it could hurt but in a good way!  And there can't be as much pain as our guys will probably go through fighting off the cheapshots from the Quackers, et al. 

 

LET'S GO, RED WINGS!!

 

 

 

$5.00 per goal as far as they can take it!

$5.00 per shutout has far as they can take it!

$5.00 every time Mick says one of the following:
 
- Holy Jumpin'
- Donnybrook
- He left his x (where x equals some paraphernalia) hanging from the x (where x equals some object above ice level)
- Anything about Fort St.
 
I was going to offer $1.00 every time Mick makes a non-positive comment about the officiating and another $1.00 every time Ken comes to the defense of the officials with a generalization (e.g. things move real fast, they have a hard job...)... but I fear I would go broke, and would spend half the game tallying up the occurrences.

Edit: I’m going to do a $10.00 a game limit in case Mick get's carried away with his Mickeyisms.

I'm going to pledge X cents for each scoring jersey number (example: 13 cents each time Datsyuk scores, etc) with double for powerplay goals and triple for shorties. I'll keep track of it myself (and will round up generously!)

 

Edit: I forgot to add that I will also factor in multi-goal games!

Hope you don't mind but I have put a similar thread on www.kingdomofthegiants.com (Belfast Giants) fans forum and we are going to pick a local Northern Ireland charity to donate to.

 

As we all support various NHL teams (mine obviously being the Wings) so hopefully we'll get a few quid in the pot, I'll let you know how it goes.

 

I've gone $2 Franzen goal, $10 series win & $10 shut out!

 

And just as a bumper $5 per victim "Kronwalled"

Pfffft.  Mickey will hit $10 a game every time!  That's only 2 per game.  Number 1 alone will take care of that.  :lol:

Not trying to sound skeptical here, but how do we know our money is going to charity? I know it's not a ton of money, but it would be nice to know that my money isn't going into the pocket of a mod on LGW (who curiously hasn't posted their own donation on this thread). I truly don't think there is a scam going on here. I'm just wondering if there is any way to prove or verify where this money is going, cause I'm sure that would entice a few more ppl into donating (myself included).

I've given before.  She once posted a thank-you that she got.

 

She's gone to quite some trouble to find a good charity that would take our donation.  Plus I think that there are people on here who know her personally and can vouch for her.  Of course, then you have to find people who will vouch for them...
