Fighter Auction Tourney Funds

How to apply for Fighter Auction Tourney (FAT) Funds

Fighter Auction Tourney (FAT) Funds are collected every year as a part of Rowany Festival, and placed into a Barony Rowany account to be redistributed throughout the following year to help improve the Kingdom of Lochac. Anyone can apply for the funds for projects that improve our Kingdom.

General Principles

There are some general rules that we follow (listed below). They are not set in stone, but following them shows you are serious about your application and increases the chance of funding.

  • The more of the populace you will reach with your proposed project, the more favourably it will be viewed
  • The more effort you put into raising partial funds for your project, the more we understand how important it is to your community
  • Applications should only be for 50% of travel costs
  • If you are requesting funds for hiring/purchasing specialised items (i.e. tools, cameras etc) please provide at least 2 quotes for comparison.
  • We are disinclined to approve perpetual funding. If you hold a yearly project/event, you will need to apply for funding yearly to ensure that future applications are given fair consideration.

The Application!

We have developed a FAT application proforma. Open the .pdf file in Microsoft Word or equivalent and it should be converted to an editable document. You do not have to use this, but it is helpful as a guide. Please answer all the questions to the best of your ability, and please feel free to add more information, photos etc.

The Approval!

All requests are reviewed at the monthly Rowany Senate meeting and we request you submit your application 2 MEETINGS before you need to use the funds. This is to ensure we have time for the Senate to review the application, and ask for more information if required.  Our meetings are held on the 3rd Thursday of the month as a general rule. Any changes to this will be published on the Rowanites email list, and Barony of Rowany FB pages.

Whilst you do not have to attend, it is recommended to come along. It’s quite a chill meeting, but we’d love to be able to ask questions directly so that we can hopefully approve within the first meeting.
