Yes, This is the official announcement for the Quacking Scrog-a-Roo Scholarship
;D This is not joke. I repeat this is not a joke! I am not some guy in Alaska giving away tickets, although I did make the C-list ad. This scholarship is founded with the intentions of helping two well deserving souls find their way home to Bonnaroo. To quote March BMOTM,
"I would say that first and foremost, the person needs to have a strong desire to go to the festival but can't afford it otherwise. I wouldn't want it to go to someone who could afford everything easily, but just wants to save some dough. Also, they should be an all round nice/good person... someone who would fit well with the vibes at Bonnaroo."
This is who we are looking for, if you know of this person, please apply. Anybody who is not this, is who we are not looking for. I say we, because, I found two tickets last week," they fell off a truck". The scholarship donors choose to remain anonymous and that is all I will say about that.
Recipient will receive
2 GA 2011 Bonnaroo tickets
as of now up to $250 for travel expenses
2 Camelbak-gift-bags, loaded with Roo necessities and other surprises

This was my favorite part.
Very nice gesture btw, hope it goes to someone who really needs it. [/quote] This is our number one concern, someone scamming us and reselling the tickets, hence the Inforoo requirements. I believe we will find the right people. Glad you liked the "Happy Dance" idea. I am excited for this as well and already have visions of some great happy dancing. ;D

I would expect that some Inforooer who is all set and doesn't need the tix themselves could tap somebody who is not a member and who has the right stuff but no money to sign up and apply and let Scrog know that so-and-so is a reference for them. Think that might work....
