At the 7th International Mars Society Conference in Chicago a new 
contest was announced:  an International Chapter Challenge to raise 
money. These funds are essential for continued operation and upgrades 
of our Flashline Mars Arctic Research Station on Devon Island and the 
Mars Desert Research Station (MDRS) in the southern Utah desert, and 
to allow us to launch our planned European Mars Arctic Research 
Station in Iceland.

The prize for the Chapter that raises the most?  
Are you ready????

(slots can be used together or separately)
With Air Fare Paid to Salt Lake City, Utah

Here's how it works:
	Collect monetary donations (check, credit card or money order 
accepted) or in-kind contributions (which will be counted at retail 
	Send the donations to HQ via mail to:
 		The Mars Society

	Collect donations, in cash (check, credit card or money order 
accepted) or in-kind contributions (which will be counted at retail 
Be sure to include a note with every donation as to which chapter 
should get the credit for the donation.

	Report all activity to Patt Czarnik (pattczarnik@hotmail.com) 
who will keep the tally and update progress monthly on the Mars 
Society website
	Make sure that contributors clearly state which Chapter gets 
credited for their donation

Contributions began at this year's Conference and the first tally 
will be available shortly.  Over $32,000 was raised at the banquet so 
we are off to a great start!!!!!  The contest will end early August 
2005 (depending on date of Boulder Conference).

So, dust off those displays, clear the telephone lines, and limber up 
those fingers!

Good Luck to Everyone!!!
