Hi all,

I'm going to kick off the pledges thread for player sponsorship now.

So, to recap, in 2016 we raised the rather large amount of $4,760, which gave us enough to sponsor six players and also have $440 left to throw into the pot for this year's sponsorship. 2016's thread can be found here, for those interested.

Donations are generally to be in $25 increments. People who donate between $50 and $99 receive a BFSC Gold membership, and people who donate $100 or more get a BFSC Platinum membership.

For every player we sponsor, we receive two tickets to the player sponsorship night- last year 12 of us went along, and had a great time meeting and chatting to the players, and if we're lucky we might even get to meet other club legends too. We also receive a signed and framed player photo. Both the tickets and pictures will be determined by way of a draw, and this is why donations in $25 increments are preferred- for every $25 you donate, you get one entry into each draw. So the more you donate, the more chance you'll have of coming up trumps.

We sponsored Orazio Fantasia, Shaun McKernan, Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti, Aaron Francis, James Polkinghorne and Ryan Crowley in 2016; Polks and Crowls were in place of Travis Colyer and Ben Howlett as were not allowed to sponsor them during their suspensions, but now that they are back we will resume our support of them- if you include 2016, this will this forum's seventh year in a row of supporting those two. The details of the 2017 sponsorship in terms of price per player will hopefully be available on the website shortly; I will follow this up with the club and post details here once I have them.

This year, the cost is $750 per player. With the combination of $440 from 2016 and the guaranteed $200 from BigFooty, we're already sitting on $640 so we almost have enough for one player already. The amounts we'll need are:

2 players - $1,500
3 players - $2,250
4 players - $3,000
5 players - $3,750
6 players - $4,500
7 players - $5,250
etc

I'm a very strong believer that we maintain sponsorship of individual players as long as they remain Essendon players. If we do happen to raise enough to sponsor seven or more players as a forum, then I will start a poll to determine who those players are.

So why get involved?

1) It is a great way to show a bit of extra support for the players
2) You get shiny badges next to your name- who doesn't like shiny badges?
3) Those who have been to the functions can vouch for this, it really is a bunch of fun getting to meet the players and other people at the club. Not to mention other posters
4) The satisfaction of being part of the sponsorship effort is quite fulfilling

So, pledge away folks. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask.

Beerfish, Harlequin, Loonerty and myself will keep the running total of pledges updated in the OP as they come in.
