Team USA - Raffle Drive for 1000s

During the last F3J WC, they ran a promotion where people donated $5 or $10 for every 1000 posted by Team USA.

We'd like to do the same thing, but I'll sweeten the deal. I'll put those donations towards raffle tickets.

Any takers?

DISCLAIMER: I'm about to jump up on a Soapbox, so be prepared....or tune to another thread

I'm REALLY not trying to be judgemental, BUT...

#1). I can't believe that with the amazing community that IS DLG... that with all the people willing to give time and treasure to those who are new and upcoming into this discipline, we can't get some traction here. Where are the guys who so willingly helped me and so many others as noobies get going in this phenomenal sport/hobby?

#2). The junior pledge I've made ($5/1k), has cost me $90 so far, and maybe that'll double in the next few days, but dang...it helps support not only this cycle, but hopefully the next as well.

#3). EVERY donation helps support our U.S. TEAM....it doesn't have to be $5/1K....give $.50 per 1K, or $.25.....or whatever you can. Just STEP UP and help.

#4). Doug is turning EVERY $ of donation into a raffle ticket, so you have the chance of not only helping defray the cost of "YOUR" U.S. team traveling halfway across the globe to represent "US", but also of winning some really cool stuff.

#5). Gavin Trussel, Scott Myers and John Graves, AND their wives, have ALL made monetary sacrifices to train, equip, and travel with their sons to represent this, (YOUR), country in these WC's, and we, as a community, should help.

#6). I just called Noah's grandmother and she's offered to match my donation to the junior's perfect scores, so let's all enlist whatever we can from people who love/care for those competing.

#7). Ask yourself this one question....how much would you have paid to have the play-by-play commentary you've enjoyed from Doug and Mickey here on RCG, and Nick Wu on Facebook? How about the "free" updates on FAI F3K website? Lets turn that into a dollar figure and donate it.

OFF THE SOAPBOX NOW....

Paul

Paul,

Many of us have been contributing large amounts to this cause, multiple times, over the last several months as we geared up for the WC. Just because it isn't today, or as part of this latest challenge to "pay for every K", doesn't mean there aren't lots of us helping all we can. Your comment #1 is a little near sighted. The USA F3K community as a whole has been amazing, and continues to be.

Your other points are valid... The guys in Croatia, especially Doug and Nick have done a great job keeping us well informed and entertained, and the team has done a great job flying; and we should continue to support them however we can. Those that haven't contributed anything yet should feel the sting of your words.

Team funds are a bit low due to some unexpected costs but I think we're ok.

I seem to have problems opening the results page. Who do we have in the finals? Charlie and Dillon? How many rounds? I don't want to get carried away

More on track... I'm hopeful people will kick in a little more. The hotel and other things cost us a bit more than initially planned.

Okay, I'm in. 10$ for each 1000 on Charlie and Dillon.

Ryan, it's "do unto others, as you would have them do unto you" or something like that.
