As you know, Iíve been doing this for quite some time. First it was recording the races, and then it was uploading the races online. Now, with some assistance from friends that provided their time, knowledge, and expertise, Iím bringing you a LIVE stream to watch short track. During this ENTIRE time, Iíve essentially been spending my own hard earned money to get far. Maybe I can take this even further. But I wonít be able to do it without your help.
One of the biggest problems in short track today is the lack of coverage. When I started getting into short track, one of my biggest complaints was that I would only hear of stories or anecdotes of what happened. Youíd get a different version of the story from each person. Frankly, I didnít like hearing these stories. I WANTED TO SEE WHAT HAPPENED and then judge for myself. Thatís when I started recording.
Ask yourself this.
Do you like short track?
Do you like watching short track in HD?
Do you like watching a LIVE stream of short track?
Do you like the fact that the person covering the short track ACTUALLY knows the sport?
Then please make a donation! Iíve spent COUNTLESS hours getting the right equipment and making sure everything works so that the fan are able to see the races. Iíve spent my own money and time to do this. Flights cost money. Hotels cost money. FOOD costs money. Time costs money. Equipment costs money. Iíve taken my own vacation days off from work to do these events (vacation days that actually should be FOR vacation). Iíve enabled relatives to be able to watch their loved ones skate LIVE. There are times when they canít come to watch because of prior engagements (work, school, etc). But my stream helps them be there.
OF COURSE, we can always go back to what things were. No videos, no live coverage, and no stream. We can go back to hearing stories and no race footage to watch. Short track speedskating can continue being an obscure sport that no one knows about. Iím trying to change that, but I canít do it alone.
Iím currently being funded by NO ONE. Iím not funded by any organization whatsoever. I run my own show and do things the way I want it to be done. Thatís how I like it.
So please. If you can, MAKE A DONATION TODAY. Enjoy the races! GO FAST, and TURN LEFT.
