If you like fall east wind sailing, perhaps you are a fan of RoosterCam. We've had this cam running for the past 5 years until it broke down this spring. We took it down last weekend and found that our valiant little cam has bit the dust. We ordered a new one and hope to have it reinstalled in a couple weeks. The new cam was $335 and we'll be spending another $150-$250 on revamping the website, switching hosting providers, etc.

The nwkite.com group has stepped up and donated about $200.
Would be great if the windsurfing community could also help out.
Every $10 or $20 donation helps a lot.

You can donate to the project at:
pdxgreen.com/roostercam.aspx

thanks!
Bob & Al

Bob,

You should put up a page for RoosterCam donation requests at the old URL for the live Rooster image (you know .... where the Rooster cartoon just was). Our Gorge Wind Cams page of links http://www.sailworks.com/bp/Gorge_Wind_Cams.html feeds that and you are top of the page (with a broken link).

Thanks for keeping the cam up.

/Bruce

ps - I sent you $50 from Sailworks

Donated $20, you might want to put this on the kite forum also.

Thanks to all those who donated!

We raised over $600 which will pay for the new cam and cover our hosting costs for the next year or two.

The new cam is in and with any luck we'll have it up and running this weekend:
