Team usa f3b - $ donation $ per 1000 point round challenge!!!!!

GO TEAM USA! DZ is in 1st and Kyle 2nd! NOW IS THE TIME TO KICK IN THE SUPPORT AND THE INCENTIVES

I challenge the F3B team pilots to get perfect 1000 point rounds, and if you do, I will donate $20 for each 1000 point round that is scored by any US team pilot! And it is retroactive. Meaning if you have already logged a granny or two, I already owe you money.

I wish to extend this challenge to all who wish to support our team. I happen to know that they need about 4800 bucks to meet their budget goals, and I can’t think of a better way to do it than this. I also propose that any who chose to donate can do so by pledging here in this thread or the team thread based on the following range:

Level 1 - $5 per 1000
Level 2 - $10 per 1000
Level 3 - $20 per 1000

When the comp is over, Dave Olson will tally up all the grannys and PM us with what we owe in total pledge money. When we send in our money, Dave will issue raffle tickets based on the team raffle ticket scale below.

1 ticket (+$5.00)
3 tickets (+$10.00)
7 tickets (+$20.00)
20 tickets (+$50.00)
50 tickets (+$100.00)
125 tickets (+$200.00)
400 tickets (+$500.00)
1000 tickets (+$1,000.00)

So, if by the end of the comp, my pledge is $200, Dave will issue me 125 tickets upon receipt of payment, right Dave?

Good deal right? We encourage our team to kick arse and get grannys and we will donate money, and for that donation we get tickets to a killer donor reward program.

SO WHO’S WITH ME????? I pledge $20 for each 1000 point round flown by any US F3B Team Pilot at the World Champs in the Netherlands! So DZ, Kyle, Mike and Dillon, now is the time to keep the hammer down and earn those granny's.

GO TEAM USA!!!!

Lets go supporters, show them you are behind them and help ease their burden at the same time.

Mike Smith

Great idea, Mike!

I am in to support the team in this way as well. The raffle tickets (er, stickers) are a great bonus too!

I am not as rich as Mike, and I believe in this team, so I will pledge at level 2 - $10 per 1000.

Go Team USA!!
