New Zealand F3J team raffle

Gidday y'all!

New Zealand is sending its first ever full team to the F3J world championships in a couple of months. The team is composed of Scott Chisholm, Les Stockley, and Sven Zallberg as the pilots, Paul Chisholm as helper, and myself as team manager.

Due to our antipodean location, the travel expenses are quite high compared to most other countries teams. The majority of expenditures to travel and compete are paid for by the team members, with a small but much appreciated grant from the NZMAA (New Zealands equivalent to the US AMA) along with fund raising efforts such as a raffle and t-shirt sales to partially defray the large costs for fielding a team at the world championships.

Thanks to several kind vendors and individuals, we have several fine prizes that we are raffling off to raise some much needed funds for the team. The raffle has been well supported in New Zealand to date (as well as a significant amount of support from gracious fliers in Australia), but we still have a few tickets left to sell to reach the maximum number of 500 tickets that we have set.

The raffle is just a few days away on April 30th (which is April 29th in the US due to the international date line), so if you wish to purchase any tickets, let me know quickly!

Attached is a flier describing the raffle prizes available. Due to the logistics required for payment, PayPal is probably the best way to go here. My email address is at the bottom of the flier. If you are keen on supporting the New Zealand F3J team, send me an email with your details and number of tickets you are purchasing.

Best Regards,
Joe Wurts
