About this project
Risks and challenges
The main challenge is going to be getting the funding ($35,000) because without that, the project can not be done.
I have a small ($1,500) fund of money for emergencies. The possible reasons I would dip into this fund while shooting for the book are as follows:
Car Trouble: My schedule is pretty rigid and car problems could potentially be an issue. I would use money from the fund to fix the car and get moving again. I have already budgeted $500 for repairs to the vehicle, so that money would be utilized first. This one would only be if the $500 is used up.
Rain Delay: In the event of a rain-out resulting in one of the games being cancelled, I would use about 500 of the emergency fund to fly out to that stadium after the trip is over. (Near the end of the season)
Equipment Problems: I am not anticipating any camera issues, and I will have personal backups just in case. However, if something happens that causes a camera or my equipment to need repairs, I will use money from the "emergency fund" to do so.
