The DCSki lapel pins have arrived, and you may have already spotted a DCSki Columnist wearing one at a local resort.
Here's an actual photo of one (although it's difficult to photograph them in the right light):
The pins came out quite well. As we discussed earlier, pins will be provided as a gift to "DCSki Supporters." To become a DCSki Supporter, you can donate money to DCSki here
, or by clicking the new "Support DCSki" option in the main menu. You can donate any amount you feel appropriate, but to receive a pin, your donation must be at least $20. There are some additional benefits for DCSki Supporters -- for example, a "DCSki Supporter" icon will show up by your name in the Message Forums.
If you'd like to receive more than one pin, I decided to offer additional pins for additional donation amounts of $10. For example, if you donate $30, you can request two pins. If that doesn't seem fair, let me know.
I'm grateful for any amount you can donate, but I'm not here to beg for money. I invest a lot of time and money in DCSki because I enjoy it, and advertisers also help support the site and make it possible. If you enjoy the site and would like to contribute money, you now have that option.
I also understand that not everyone has disposable income. If you cannot afford to donate $20 but would still like a DCSki lapel pin, please send me an e-mail, and I'll see what I can do. (I can't give everyone a free pin, but if you have been a long-time reader of DCSki and have actively participated in the DCSki Message Forum, I'd be happy to send you a pin if you promise to wear it proudly.
