My comment was that I would like you, Tom K, to represent us as well because I see and know that you are also very much involved in many aspects of soaring.

Tell that frenchy to kis... k... keep an open mind.

Soar! Oui-oui?

$200 to the effort. My note to Colleen will direct the funds back to the 2013 F3k Team is Terry is unable to go.

F3K - Please send at least $20 in to the Terry fund. A small amount will go a lot farther from a lot of people than larger amounts from a few. We need to build the soaring constituency!

Post your pledge of $20 bucks and follow through.

I'll send 20 bucks to Colleen today...if it turns out to be extra, I will ask her to donate to the F3K team fund.

Thank you Terry, I know this will not be a vacation.
Thank you Tom, as well.

Just called Colleen and donated my $30.
This needs to happen very quickly as the CIAM meeting is only about a month away.

Gary,

The easiest way is just to call Colleen and donate via credit card. If she isn't there leave a message and she will get back to you.

Gary,
All funds are being collected my Colleen Pierce at the AMA. Colleen Pierce can be reached by calling the AMA at (800) 435-9262, extension 252. If she is not there, leave her a message saying you want to make a donation to fund Terry Edmonds' trip to the CIAM meeting and she will get back to you.

Here is what Tom posted in the F3X thread:
I'm sure you all are aware that there is some pretty crazy talk going on about eliminating some of the soaring World Championships. Right now the French delegate has suggested F3B and F3F as events to cancel. These are just his ideas. It is entirely possible that F3J and F3K are being considered for cancellation as well.

Since the AMA has decided to send only one or two representatives to the CIAM meeting, there is a very good chance Soaring will not be given a proper voice.

I asked Terry Edmonds (our soaring representative) if he would be willing to go if we raised enough money to send him. He has agreed to go! Terry has been our representative for many years and has developed friendships and alliances with soaring delegates from other countries. As far as I'm concerned he is the best person to send to represent us. He knows the politics involved and will do the best to make our voice heard.

We need to raise about $2k to cover his travel expenses. Colleen Pierce at the AMA has agreed to collect the donations. She can be reached at (800) 435-9262 ext. 252 When you donate be sure to make it clear that the money is for sending Terry to the CIAM meeting. The money will be earmarked as such. In the event not enough money is raised it will be returned to you. I will keep you posted as to when (if) we reach our goal.

If anyone has enough airline miles to send Terry to Europe that they are willing to donate please let me know. This would be a great start in covering his expenses.

Thanks everyone for your help!

Tom Kiesling

Thanks everyone for their support. As long as everyone that has promised to send money follows through, we have reached our goal. So at this time please save your money to buy raffle tickets from the F3K and F3B team.

Thanks again guys!
