CNC,

We have been very proud to have all of you as members and to be completely honest this site has been growing much faster than we have expected which is great. With any growing site there is of course growing costs and much more time needed to build a better site and more tools to run it efficiently.

As many of you have noticed we have started doing some ads on the top to generate more hits and get some revenue in which helps but again we want to build CNC to be a powerhouse. We currently have many great features on the go and with your help we will have the ability to do much more in the terms advertising and growing CNC.

We have on the go the following advertising/building items which of course cost money

- We are attending card shows in Toronto area
- We will be advertising on The Hockey News website
- We spend hundreds a month on google adwords
- We love to have extravagent giveaways
- We are building a store to carry : Hockey boxes, Replica jersey's and UFC apparel

We are very proud of our progress on this site and it could not have been done without all of you great members.

Now with donating (minimum $10) you will then be recognized as a Premium Member for your contributions which include the following

- Your choice of seeing the ads (if you choose to make them go away that is fine)
- Your username will be gold plated which will let others know you have contributed to this site
- You will also be classified as a supporter under your name to again show you are helping build our site
- Helping build our site and allow us to advertise on great sites to bring in more members to come and chat sports

Donations can also be made TTM just PM me for details and you will be included as above.

We appreciate all of your support and look forward to a bigger and better CNC!

Geoff, Dan and Brad

Wow Geoff. This is really coming along great. I can remember when there was like 200 members. I'm so happy to be a part of C&C. Thanks for all the effort you guys put forth every day.

I have one quick question. Is there any other way to donate apart from PayPal?

Just had an idea.

If you donate 10 dollars you get the gold plated, if you donate 50 or more you get a titanium plate (With the benefits that you already said)

It already will show up on our end as "donation from" so we will know exactly who it is from and that it was a donation.

Thank you very much!

I'd donate the money, but I'd shoot myself if I had to browse CNC with a Bruins name plate forever.
