Friends 2009 aka Pass The Hat Time

12/19/2008, updated often

Well I was hoping to wait until spring of 2009 to launch our funding campaign but alas, a surprise 11th hour bill bit me in the six. Seems our domain name lapsed earlier this week.

Tim graciously rescued the name by going out of pocket because our funds were almost depleted by the most recent hosting company payment.

Our last drive was in 2005 and was very successful due to the generosity of our list members.

Our population demographic has once again shifted slightly, but our population has remained fairly consistent, hovering ~ 300 members.

The time has come where I once again have to come to you and ask for your support. We are a privately held site that accepts no advertising. We were founded on that principle and to this day remain steadfast to it.

Of course the down side - we generate no revenue but have overhead which has to be met if the list and site are to continue.

So here I come - asking for donations to help continue to keep V8SHO.COM and it's sub list alive. Any donation, no matter the size, is most welcome.

Because of PayPals greed, we would prefer checks. That way you can be assured the entire amount of your contribution goes for it's intended purpose. If you must use PayPal, be forewarned that your donation will be diluted by their assessing a fee before releasing your funds.

Send your check payable to the V8SHO Fund and mail to the following address:

V8SHO Fund c/o
Don Mallinson
902 S Main Street
Washington, IL 61571

If PayPal is a better option, even considering the caveat, then use this pay pal address:


We have had a great run, and with your continued assistance, look for even more exciting times ahead. Give what you can. I will use this page to acknowledge those donors, however I will not list their donations.
I'll leave the duration open for the time being.

BTW I know the timing is less than stellar with the holidays looming large in our windshields, but I have to do what's best for the site and list.

Uncl Lar.
