Hi Ranchers:
Isn't it the time for a new donation drive again? Since the maintenance of the ranch is an on-going one, so why shouldn't we make the donation drive an on-going one?
I missed the last one, due to being on power play. But I am ready to give now!
Sincerely Yours,

Another idea:
Is it possible to have a NCAA basketball bet? Ranchers are volunteerily to enter (or mandatory), everyone predicts a champion. Winner takes half of the money pool, ranch gets the rest.
This is pretty common in workplaces. In all my previous companies, people bet everything: stock price, NCAA football, NCAA basketball,...
NCAA basketball starts around the 2nd week of March. Perhaps just enough time for us to build an enterprise Java appilication.

A nice idea except that it would be illegal and we don't want poor Paul spending any more time in prison getting in trouble.

I don't know about the business, so I am just guessing, please forgive me if it sounds ridiculous or even worse.
It may be a matter of license, but of course, license also costs money.
 
I child proofed my house but they still get in. Distract them with this tiny ad:
