Figured it was about time to start another thead showing the importance of donating to the BOC. I have been a member for almost 4 years now and every day I log on I am amazed at the support that BOC brothers and sister lend to each other. We have a full time staff that works for FREE to help us out in anyway that they can. They do this out of their love for the sport of catfishing and for their love of the BOC. Paul founded this site many moons ago and has kept it running so we have a place to call home. We have people from all walks of life, every religion, race, and state and many different countries. We are here because of our love of catfishing and how the BOC makes us feel when you log on. If you ask for a prayer.........many respond. If you have a question.......many respond. If you have a gripe.......also, many respond. lol This place does not run on air folks, it takes money to keep the server up and running. Upgrades are needed and nothing is free as many of us know. It is not fair for us to expect Paul to dig into his pocket whenever something needs done. I donated once a year for the last 3 years and just did not feel like I was doing my part. This year I made a pledge to donate $10 every month all year long. So far so good, 4 months in and just made my 4th donation. If you are able to help the we all appreciate it. It is nice to know the lights are on whenever you want to come in and check on everyone. Just want to ask for support for this wonder place we call home.
