As some of you may know, Rick B purchases literally thousands of dollars worth of tickets each week, all for the benefit of Americans who are coming over to see a game. ArsenalAmerica's dues (that $3.65) go into a kitty that helps facilitate these purchases via the ArsenalAmerica debit card, but it hasn't been enough so we had to find some other sources to cover the outlays. As you know, to use a debit card, you have to have the cash in there to start before you can make a transaction. And to accomplish this, we had two donors from these messageboards that chipped in $1,000 each as a loan to ArsenalAmerica. The first of these loans has been returned (almost all the tickets are bought for this season) and I am pleased to announce that Nick (n4100), a regular on this board, was one of the contributors. He doesn't like to toot his own horn, but I'm forcing the matter because I really want to say thanks for putting his cash on the line to help the other members of the club. So feel free to pass along your own thanks to Nick for his help in getting us tickets this Spring.
