It appears that our latest hope for cane swell is getting a bit dizzy and disoriented much like it's most recent predecessor. In the effort to salvage what may be one of the last chances at big time scoring during this futile cane season, we've organized the SI Swell Drive to woo the tropical wave our way.

Pledge your donation today to build up the dowry we offer this Invest! Can be anything of value to you, something that's been in the family for years, or even days. See what some SI forumites have already pledged:
