As many of you know, I do the rankings for the MSWA website. The MSWA is a non-profit, all volunteer organization and there is no pay involved for any of the hard working, dedicated volunteers. This doesn’t bother me in the least as the MSWA’s financial contributions to MD National teams has increased enormously in recent years. I support the MSWA and the wrestlers for the love of the sport, to help promote it, as well as give due recognition to the wrestlers who put in the hard work.

We decided a few years ago to set up a Pay Pal account and take voluntary donations as a show of appreciation and support for my efforts. This has been received very well in the past, and I’m very grateful for the support. I feel a little odd asking the wrestling community to donate money towards a job that is voluntary. But the amount of time I put into the rankings is more time consuming than a part time job (very close to a full time gig). To get some compensation for my time is great.

We did this so anyone who would like to chip in and help out would have a way to do so. Many of you have donated in the past and it’s been greatly appreciated.

The Paypal email address to send donations is artherius17@gmail.com .
Thanks,
Billy Buckheit

the rankings drive a good number of viewers to this Forum.
The Forum charges for advertisement.
Seems like the the Forum could certainly carve out a couple of bucks to the person who provides content that attracts the readers, that the advertisers are trying to reach.

Just an opinion

What Watty said! At least some small carve out seems reasonable.

Billy, thank you so much for monumental effort you put into this. These rankings are fun, informative and help create a community. The rankings and your articles are one of the few sources we have to get accurate information about high school wrestling and your efforts are appreciated.

If you read the rankings or the articles, you really should drop Billy a "thank you" donation if you can afford it and I am guessing any amount would be appreciated.

THANKS AGAIN!

Thanks -------to Billy and announcer Du Jour---Mike Clemmons for travelling all over on your own dime to do a thankless job.
