Canadian F3J Team Raffle 2012

So after some shifting of team positions the final team looks like this

Arend Borst

Keith Thompson

David Webb

We now have enough time to organize some fund raising and will be bringing a web site online soon for raffle tickets - donations and general updates.

I expect that this year, fund raising and support from the community at large will be of higher importance. Your support will be appreciated and I thank you guys in advance because i know that this is a group that steps up and basically "makes it happen" when the chips are down.

If you are a vendor reading this feel free to PM me on the raffle items you wish to donate should you have such items. We will be glad to publish your company on the site and I will include them on a growing list of items available for the raffle...so, WHO will be the first to start a Tsunami of raffle items?

Anyone wishing to purchase tickets can PM me directly - 5 for $100 1 for $30

Ticket sales extended to the end of July at which time I will be in SA shooting for the moon! we will return middle of August and do the raffle with some whitnesses - Ticket numbers will be posted at months end (july) in this thread -

Thanks Mike - We are pretty excited of course but also have some major goals to attain in terms of fund raising so we have our work cut out for us.

As soon as our site goes live we will be ramping up raffle items and shirt sales.

If anyone has industry contacts for items that could be donated for the raffle contact me directly.

Thanks! - At this stage while a bunch of good luck would probably be helpful the real sticking factor for all team members is funding.

I am working hard to bring a raffle system online asap because I know this community is essentially one borderless family.

At our TS event this year and before I saw my friends from the US drive 6 + hours to help, other shipped gear, gave us launching line. As sportmen and women this community "makes it happen" when action is required.

I am looking forward to giving away an Xplorer\Elf\Radio and other coveted gear to this group.

It is a huge bonus to have David on the Canadian Team. After the team selects for France he proved to be a great sportsman and helped me out in many ways in preparing for the last WC. I'm looking forward to practicing together as much as possible for South Africa. Fund raising will be a big challenge in these difficult times. Many thanks in advance for all the support!

Seniors:

Arend Borst

Keith Thomson

David Webb

Simon Borst will be the Canadian Junior again.

No its not up yet Marco.

We are finalizing raffle ticket prices, shirt prices and some graphics as well as team bios. Once that is done we can put it online and let the fun begin!

To all monitoring our team finance drive - thank you in advance. We simply can't do it with out you.

A major thanks in advance to the sponsors who have stepped up with some massive prizes.
