View Full Version : Nats: The Pilgrimage Begins!

okay, so... three of my associates and I have come across, a bump in the road. We've completed the easy task of qualifying for nationals, and realized $2,000 dollars each to get there... just doesn't work for us. "The Man" (our school) is always already trying to keep us down, and leaving us to raise all the money ourselves. So far we've come out with several ideas like hitting famous people up for money, bake sales, pimping, and drug dealing, oh and taxidermy... but now we're fresh out. So, I'm thinking you guys should throw ideas my way of of how to raise the obsene amount of $9,000 before June.

We had this problem last year..
If its warm weather, have a car wash. make your whole team come for a few hours and give out little info sheets telling the car owners all about speech and have a DONATIONS jar. We made $500 in one afternoon last year.
See if you can get stuff donated and raffle it off.. lame, I know.
Beg for money. We wrote a form letter to all the lawyers in town asking for donations, and I think we made about $1000 after postage, etc.
Hope this helps!

this worked before, find someone that knows one of the editors at the local newspaper...say that you need people's help...get together and give them a performance from their qualifying pieces, and they will likely buy tickets, and it makes for a **** of a practice in front of large audiences...and if not in the newspaper, send kids house to house, and hand out flyers...people at heart are good, and if they shown the reason for such a moneyraiser, they will never turn down an educational experience, and if im not making any sense, it is because i am intoxicated, sorry.

no, you make sence...its a good idea, we're going it this year...we call it "The Gift of GAb"...we have a really nice theatre, but u can try in the school theatre or the gym or something. Like 1/4 of my posts are when iM intoxicated...and most of the time they wind up make sence. Cause when u get home from being out, the funnest thing to do on the internet is go to fo.net....well 2nd funnest thing :oops:

We have a little assembly at our school, kinda like "The gift of Gab" Only, it isnt to raise money. Our is called "What the HECK is FORENSICS?"
Forensics is not a very advertised club on our campus, though it should be.

Our team is having a huge garage sale in the faculty parking lot, and renting out spaces for businesses to sell things. At least, that is the idea.
We have a big performing arts Assembly, and 2-3 people from every group come and perform something for the entire school. It's really fun.

well about that... The thing about our team is... okay imagine you're in a zoo, and you look in a cage and you see like fifteen different animals that SHOULDN'T be co-existing but are on some weird-*** pin drop perfection where the slightest breeze and JANGA! Over to the left is the lions, except they're all male, and as we know male lions don't get along well with each other, and there's no female lions so their sexually repressed, okay that's our Policy Debators. To the right there's a few tigers, they don't get along with the lions or anything but can hold there own. Circling overhead are the vultures, waiting for something to die, okay that's the Contraversy kids. which leaves us with IE-ers the Extempers and the policy kids are the same people,... this post shal be continued in my third period.
Grazing in front are the ostridges perpetually upwind of the lions and tigers a meer few feet away. and then there's the Interpers, the only ones actually going to nats. we're that weird Blue-*** Baboon you've only seen pictures of. what I'm trying to say here, is we don't have the team that... helps each other out... or... does nice things for eachother... it's more this unsettling understanding that if the wind changes the lions will go and try and get the ostridges and the tigers will fight the lions, the vultures will be picking dead meat and us interpers will just start throwing **** everywhere. In conclusion, we're on our own in a big way, just the 4 of us. Did this make sense to ANYONE?
