Renew The North Bay Bay!

Hi! Philip here from The North Bay Bay!

You might recognize The North Bay Bay as the website that published such ground-breaking articles as Police uncover illegal raccoon fighting ring , Loblaws launches No Name® condoms , Heritage Carousel launches onto Lake Nipissing, sinks , Quints Museum now an ice shack , and Giant pterosaur attacking everyone in North Bay .

Launching in June of 2017, The North Bay Bay has published over 150 satirical articles, ranging from delicate political pieces like Sheldon Forgette on Main St. rampage , to exposes like A Report On North Bay’s Yellow Vest Rally , and happier community pieces like Drag Show a Success! Car Enthusiasts Confused .

On July 6th, 2019, The North Bay Bay domain and our hosting will be up for renewal, at a cost of $356.94.

Simply put: this is too much for us.

All of North Bay Bay's writers volunteer their time to write the articles featured on site. None of us get paid, except in the occasional high five. I think someone might have bought Jenn a beer once too, but it might have been her mom and it was definitely on Jenn's birthday, so that might not count.

Anyways, we really enjoy writing these articles! We've had a blast poking fun at the weird little things that happen in our hometown while using the site to promote local events and spur discussion on anything from declaring a local strip club as a "Heritage Property" , to the viability of releasing wild wolves directly into North Bay .

So to help us with renewing the website, longtime reader and tech-savvy fan Courtney has helped us set up this GoFundMe page to keep The North Bay Bay going for another two years. Your donation, however big or small, will guarantee that the site continues to produce funny and occasionally insightful articles about North Bay, Ontario, and sometimes even the cyclopedic Eldritch netherworld .

Everyone who contributes will (with consent) get a shout out on our Facebook Page , and (again, only if you want!) have their name included in a future North Bay Bay article as an eye-witness,  evil scientist, local celebrity, etc.!

Thanks for reading, and thanks being awesome!

The North Bay Bay Team
