The Petition List Update
. . . and then there were 26!!! Only 1,974 to go to reach the minimum.
Thank you, Aaron, for adding your name to the list. It's wonderful to have you on board.
Please don't forget that EVERYONE, from anywhere in the world, is invited & encouraged to add their name to the Petition List. Just email The MGT. to have your name added.
My sincerest thanks, as always, to everyone who has already signed the petition & left a message in the Guestbook/Memory Page. Every name & message is vitally important.
The Michael Berk Collection
The Home page is sporting a
slightly new look once again. I went ahead & added a copy of The
Wizard of Elm
With my schedule over the next week the amount of additions to the site will be a bit less than I would like. Still, there is no deadline & I can guarantee it will be worth the wait.
There are 2 new pictures in the El Dorado section, thanks to Michael Berk. This past week he sent me two credit stills from the episode, so I put them on page 2 of the El Dorado Pictures section.
In the Nobody's Perfect Index you will now find a link to the Rough Story Outline for No Ifs Ands or Robots by Rick Mittleman. The text is transcribed from the original document & I've tried to stay as close to the original text & format as possible. Even the early drafts of the episodes are just as exciting as the final episodes & I'm having a blast transcribing them. At the moment, I'm in the middle of the 2nd story outline & should have that finished by next weekend.
Sure this section doesn't change much, but I wanted to keep reminding everyone about the 21st Anniversary Party in September. Send me an email if you are interested in attending or have any questions. This party is open to everyone including the cast & crew. This will be just a friendly gathering so no one will be obligated to take pictures or sign autographs & no one will be paid to make an appearance. I will only post pictures on the site if all persons in the picture give their permission.
We are still trying to think of something to do for all those who wish to attend, but won't be able to make it. Something to connect us all on the day in question. Please let me know if you have any ideas on this front, as well.
We are also working on starting a fund with The Starlight Foundation in honor of the show. We would like to have a raffle for some great Wizardly prizes (i.e. a gift certificate to Converse.com to get your own pair of All Stars) with all of the proceeds going directly to The Starlight Foundation. Those of us putting the party together will not have our names in the drawing, but we will be adding to the donation & personally purchasing most of the prizes.
You do not have to attend the party to have your name added to the raffle. Raffle tickets will be sold by The MGT. via PayPal. The tickets will go for $1 each or 6 for $5. Your name will be placed on a ticket or tickets (depending upon how many you purchase, of course) & the tickets will be drawn at random by an innocent sucker ~ um, I mean third party. I will match the donation amount & send the money directly to The Starlight Foundation. This is one time when I will actually put the amount raised on the Donation Page of the website & list it in the newsletter along with the winners name unless they ask me not to.
Please email me if you wish to purchase a ticket & I will send you the necessary PayPal info. I will also start updating the Party page with a list of raffle prizes as soon as possible.
