fireworks

Join us December 31st at 10 PM ET on streaming video Channels 1 and 2 to watch the fireworks over downtown Rochester from a bird’s eye view!

We’ll be meeting again later at the Forum Chat & Ustream Social Stream to ring in the New Year together!

And let’s not forget the Watcher’s Toast New Year’s Day at 12 noon!

Look forward to seeing everyone there!

ROC the Day Was a Success

Thursday, December 12th, 2013

Thanks to the generosity of our dedicated falcon followers, we raised over $1800 yesterday, including a $500 bonus earned by carrying out our clever plan to donate en masse between midnight and 2 am in order to increase our chances of winning those 2 hourly drawings.

ROC the Day officials will send us a list of donors sometime next week and a full financial statement in February, at which point we will know who to thank individually. Until then, thank you to everyone who donated. Your contributions will be used to fund Rfalconcam operations and improvements throughout 2014.

ROC the Day Starts at Midnight

Tuesday, December 10th, 2013

ROC the Day is only a a few hours away!

Join us tonight at midnight for the start of ROC the Day. Sadly this year there are no bonuses for the most number of ROCstar donors in a 2-hour time period. But that doesn’t meant there aren’t any bonuses to win. Every hour one lucky ROCstar (that’s you!) will be randomly chosen to give an extra $500 bonus to the non-profit of their choice. We are going to try to get that bonus during the first hour, and here is how we plan to do it.

We are asking all of our falcon watching ROCstars to make a donation just after midnight. This will be at a time when there are very few other people making donations. This should give us a numerical advantage when the first random drawing is made at 1 am. There is a good chance that one of you will be chosen, and then you can elect to have Rfalconcam receive the $500 bonus. Also, if you can stay up until after 1 am to make a 2nd donation, one of you might win the 2nd drawing at 2 am. (Please note that you do not have to stay up for the actual drawings. The ROC the Day folks will notify you by email if you are picked.)

So stay up a few extra hours or set your alarm clock for midnight and then make a donation. It doesn’t have to be a big one. In fact, if you make small donations throughout the day tomorrow, you will be eligible for each hourly drawing where you will have a slim but real chance of winning.

Be sure to stay tuned. You can get the latest news on our ROC the Day plans at our Forum or on our Facebook page. You can also follow us on Twitter.

By the way, the link to donate is http://www.roctheday.org/rfalconcam.
