    If you have been thinking about supporting the BOC with a voluntary donation, make the plunge, and help to keep us on top and expanding.

    The truth is, there are lots of people and organizations which are scratching their heads, wondering how in the %^% we are doing it? They spend the large majority of their time scanning the BOC, trying to pick up lessons learned and applying it to their own objectives.

    Thats exactly where we want them, scanning the BOC, learning what has just happened, not what is about to happen.

    To keep this sled in front, cutting new trails through the Alaskan Forest cost money, and as most know, we operate on a limited budget.

    Our Staff is great, and work on a strictly voluntary basis. Thousands upon thousands of man hours are donated annually to our community. Most communities even if they had the money to invest in a team, would not come close to ours. These guys work magic day in and day out, and have response times above most fortune 500 outsourced support teams. If you could read some of the problems they solve, and the way they are treated at times, you would wonder why they do it? They do it because they love the sport and what the BOC represents.

    Think about it, and if you can support it with your current lifestyle, it would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Paul

    Matching the cost of a carton of smokes,a magazine subscription,a meal out on the town,or one tankful of gasoline,is a small donation to give for the pleasure of meeting others with the same interests.Come on guys and girls,send in this amount that you would spend on yourself,to keep the greatest catfishing family on the internet.
    Those things are spent for temporary satisfaction,yet here they are available every day to the members.If you can afford it please do.What is it worth to you to be able to have a site with so much information and friendly associations available on one site?Look at the members list and you will see that without your support these are people that you would never be able to meet and share information with.
    Give if you can to keep the BOC healthy and alive.

    Your donation must have been rejected. :p LOL!!!!

    I agree with all, it's more than a web page, it's where friendships are built.

    What I've learned and those I have spoke to and want to meet or will meet is worth every penny I have sent in. I hope to give more soon.
    No other place ya can go to learn so much and meet folks that call ya family (and mean it)...
    Thank You my Brothers for making me a better fisherman !

    I agree with Todd, the BOC is family and a great place to spend time; and hopefully just a little money to help Paul to pay the bills. A $10 dollar donation is only 2.8 cents per day. Now where else can one go to received the benefits of the BOC for less than 3 cents per day?

    One thing I wish I could agree with Todd on being a better fisherman. I'm not sure anything can help me. :cry-big: :) :)

    Personally I dont understand why someone who is a regular part of BOC doesn't donate at the very lease $10. We be talking a star for a whole year and better contest etc. Friends, the fun , pic's whats up with holding back a $10. What you see is what you get. Easy stuff.
    If you like it, support it .

    Only reason I push for it is I want BOC to always be here even if I'm not. Its a cool site.
