    Who can I have my sponsors write a check out to?

  • The site seems to be down again. Are we able to sign up at the store?

  • My first comment did not seem to stick.

    The website appears to be down again. Are we able to sign up at the store?

    • We are asking each participant attending the Serious Fun event at the Wandering Dragon to raise at least $100.00 and RSVP at our Meetup. Folks that would still like to be part of Serious Fun by gaming at another location can participate by raising $50.00. Donations for Serious Fun should be made through the Serious Fun / Lamb’s Fold link on our website. Thank you!

      • Hi Bug – So sorry, we just figured out what you meant. We have confirmed the First Giving site is down. We had thought you meant the Lambs Fold site as they have recently had some difficulties with their page as well. I checked their facebook page and it looks like its been down for about 13 hours. I’m guessing their servers were somehow affected by the snow storm yesterday. While their site is down, we can collect cash / check donations and then enter them online once the site is back up. Please let us know if you have any other questions. Thanks for letting us know!!!

  • First Giving’s site is back up and the links are working again. Thank you!
