So I guess we have a general agreement from everyone that cared to chime in. Ads are not so bad.

I am working on the Ad Engine for the site and it will be done at the end of this week along with someother changes. In the meantime I am starting to make a list of different businesses that might be interested in advertising or sponsoring our site. If you know someone that might be interested let me know via PM or post it here. If you are a business that is interested please PM me or send an email.

So again, keep an eye out for businesses that would like to sponsor or advertise on our site.

Stay posted as I get more work finished and have more details to post.

Just a little FYI for all you curious cats. The money that is raised from Ads and other methods of revenue capture on PP.com will be applied to the following areas. Percentages will follow after I have done some more research
  1. Site Expense (Server Costs, Bandwidth, Liscenses etc..)
  2. PP.com Events & Functions - Well obviously just about all the money that we make above and beyond should be used for us to have fun with.
  3. Community Development (Washington Area - Put In's \ TakeOuts - RiverCams?)
  4. AWW River Conservation - There is no doubt that AW needs donations and it would be great to be able to contribute to what they do as a community.
Those are pretty much in order of piority also. So lets get this going for real now!

I would suggest that you check out getting Kavu on here. I know they are a local company and I was in one of the boating stores around seattle the other day and really liked some of the new gear I saw. Heck why don't you sell Kavu Items on here?

Lotus made my PFD.  Not sure if Patagonia is involved in that or not...
