Pledge – Per pin pledges are based on the score the bowler achieves. The minimum suggested per pin pledge is $0.25. For example, if a sponsor pledges 25 cents per pin and the bowler gets a score of 140, the sponsor‘s donation will be $35 (.25 cents times 140).
Note: the minimum score will be 100. Sponsors may also choose to make a flat rate pledge. The advantage of a flat rate pledge is that the bowler does not need to collect money after they bowl. They can collect the donation while getting sponsors.

UPDATE 4/24/11: One of the Albuquerque natives who star in tonight’s premiere of Beyond the Blackboard has recently been cast in the upcoming major motion picture The Hunger Games. CONGRATULATIONS to New Mexico’s Own Willow Shields!
The Hallmark Hall of Fame original movie originally titled Let Them Shine, shot right here in NM last summer has a new name and an official air-date.
Remember when you held the reins of your life firmly in your hands and you cast them down into the mess that would plague you for decades to come.
I do, and those poor choices of my early 20′s left only myself and a select other few to recover from the wake of those youthful indiscretions – none the less, recovery is a long, hard road. And the clarity of hindsight is of little use or potency once bridges are burned and lines are crossed.
So why not tread carefully and make cautious moves rather than maliciously casting off promising endeavors as they’re just beginning to bloom (as promised), especially when it’s thousands that will be immediately affected and thousands more for generations to come.
Right now Governor Susana Martinez and YOUR elected legislators hold the reigns reins of our still youthful yet top ranked film industry in their decisive hands.
As we reported yesterday straight from the mouth of a Roundhouse insider the slow wheels of our Government are turning and in what direction those wheels will turn the tide remains unknown – you have time to act (pun intended).
Despite proverbial nails in the hypothetical coffin of NM Film that mainstream media may be quick to tweet, broadcast and post, small businesses, trades, cast & crew and our state’s up and coming workforce in training are still in it to LIVE IT.

UPDATE 1/19/11: KOB-TV Fact Check on *hot button statement in Governor Martinez’s State of the State ATTACK ON FILM Address here.
While Louisiana, Texas and the very birthplace of “Hollywood”, among other states ramp-up their Film Incentives (already landing several projects that have pulled out of NM due to the uncertainty of state film futures) to COMPETE with New Mexico, our new leader proposes lowering our incentives and ranking as a leader in global Film Production, i.e. sending NM film jobs and revenue to our competitors.
“In order to protect classroom spending in education and basic health care for those most in need we must find savings elsewhere. That’s why I propose reducing the state’s film subsidy from 25 percent to 15 percent, which is where it first started. This has been incorrectly referred to as a tax credit. It has nothing to do with taxes. The way it works is when a film is made in the state, New Mexico taxpayers cover 25 percent of the costs. It’s a simple and straight-forward subsidy – 25 cents on the dollar. And it’s been taken advantage of … One film company spent $100,000 chartering an actor’s private jet and New Mexico *taxpayers paid $25,000 of it.“
- Governor Susana Martinez, State of the State Address 1/18/11 Source
This very intentional and direct link obviously means that there is absolutely no other way to provide health care and improve education in the state but to effectively annihilate the New Mexico Film Industry…
Unlike The History Channel’s multi-million dollar take on The Kennedys, which turns-out will never see the light of day outside of Canada…

“In the not-too-distant future, some 30 years after the final war, a solitary man walks across the wasteland that was once America. Empty cities, broken highways, seared earth—all around him, the marks of catastrophic destruction. There is no civilization here, no law. The roads belong to gangs that would murder a man for his shoes, an ounce of water…or for nothing at all.
But they’re no match for this traveler.
A warrior not by choice but necessity, Eli (Denzel Washington) seeks only peace but, if challenged, will cut his attackers down before they realize their fatal mistake. It’s not his life he guards so fiercely but his hope for the future; a hope he has carried and protected for 30 years and is determined to realize. Driven by this commitment and guided by his belief in something greater than himself, Eli does what he must to survive—and continue.” -Hip Hop Press
