Aside from any ongoing regular expenses, I'm sure it goes in the "rainy day" fund to be tapped as needed...like the need this year to outfit the Powers Building with a full set of cameras. I'm sure we would have been challenged to do it if we hadn't put some aside.

The every other hour bonus is drawn at the odd hours except for 5PM. So...you just missed the 1PM drawing...next up is between 2 & 2:59.

Quite right. The unplanned reboot of the Powers nest box will cost us about $10,000 when completed. Most of that money was earmarked for upgrades to Times Square, but not all of it. Consequently, we spent more than we anticipated in 2015. Without our nest egg (pardon the pun) built from previous years' ROC the Day donations, we would not have been in a position to cover 2 potential nest box locations.

This is why we are so grateful for everyone's generosity today. So far we have raised nearly $600 plus a $1000 bonus. Since no one has come forward to let us know about receiving the $500 bonus for Rfalconcam, we can assume that it didn't happen. But that doesn't mean we can't keep trying! There's still plenty of time. Not to mention that straight donations could easily top the $1000 mark.  And that would be a big help with our plans to upgrade the cameras at Times Square next year.

I had a problem paying with PayPal, so I contacted the chat line and was informed that they're having a server issue. They suggested I wait a few minutes and try again.  I just did that and it still didn't work.  Guess I'll risk the credit card so I can go to bed.    

I couldn't get Paypal to work either & time was running out so I used my AAA Visa

Great job, everyone!

In addition to the $1000 bonus, we've raised over $800! With a few more donations, we can make it an even $1000 to match the bonus.

And there's still a chance for a lucky donor to get an opportunity to have an additional $500 donated to Rfalconcam. Only 4.5 hours to go!

2 more donations in my budget...one for the 9PM drawing and one for the 11PM drawing. It won't bring us to the magic number, but every little bit helps!

And still keeping talons crossed one of us may get the 5 year bonus!

Yes, thanks!

And perhaps this may be a bit of an incentive for others to donate.

A couple of new Pancams being tested in my den. Hopefully they will soon be at a nearby nest box.

We're over $900 now! Sooooo close to $1000.

Just over 3 hours to go!
