PASTAFARIAN - that is a great idea! I really wish they'd do that. I'm sure I'd qualify for a tax break by now!

Give receipts for the tax-deductible portion of a benefit race so that, on my taxes the following year, *I* get the credit for the donation rather than *the race* getting the credit for *my* donation!

(I only know one enlightened HM that does this. Wish this practice would spread!)

What are enlightened practices from your favorite HMs? Here are some of mine:

- Race shirt is an optional purchase.

- No additional fee for online registration.

- Race-morning packet pickup; satellite packet pickup.

Others?
