Trust those who do not ask for our money
The money is collected and entrusted to someone, perhaps z-man or Tank Program. They make use of the funds as they see fit through the development of the year. If the competition goes ahead, they should have enough funds to distribute as agreed on this wiki. If not, I trust them to use the money well... to continue making improvements to the game, paying for server and net-time, etc.
