Splitting up pledges and prize eligibility:

You can split both one-time and monthly pledges (including Swag For Life pledges) across multiple shows. But to be eligible for prizes, the split amount has to divide into at least $20/show.

St. Charles Illinois is near Chicago, but not as close to Chicago as Oak Park
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/14/18 10:31pm Alex In Illinois:

I think St. Charles is on the Fox River.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/14/18 10:33pm Funky16Corners:

I will Google map it later on. My Pop went to seminary out that way.

I just checked. My memory is correct. I did paddle around in the Fox River in St. Charles, Illinois.
