fund raising ideas for 2013 f3k team

a few ideas i had
1 adding a 5 dollar fee to dlg contest(all sanctioned or just qualifiers) that would be donate to the team fund
over a years time this would help tremendous with the cost of travel to denmark.
2 monthly postal contest country wide contest you hold in your area all points are tallied to grade as one contest. fees would be pay paled to the team fund . and maybe different areas would put on the contests
all funds would be transparent for all to see .
we also could possibly have a team of 5 or so that are involed in the fund raising .
what do you guys think .. we need to start now since team has been picked
the sooner we start the easier it will be in the end.
just some thoughts

I wouldn't mind getting a 100 dollar hat.
Then I'd have two.

I would rather have some color if possible. I sweat stain them too soon if they are white .

Great ideas guys. I'll start prying the wife's hands from the money so by the time something is available for support I'll have a few bucks to hand in my share.

Go Team USA!

Ray Kostuk has asked me to re-finish the fuse of a Jade TD sailplane to be auctioned off at the contest in Nov. Maybe some of the people who are competing could do the same with their less flown glider's.

T shirts are great, but can you make them out of something aside from cotton? It is much cooler to fly with something like: http://www.cafepress.com/make/custom-dri-fit-shirts

Cotton gets wet and stays that way.

Did you see the shape of that shirt! That would never fit us.

I think the second version would be a better fit for me. LOL

Shirts are a good idea. How about a little design contest right here on RCG?

Awesome ideas guys. Just so you know, we are scrambling to get the official team logos going. Charlie and I are making some contacts, and as soon as we have an idea of what we like as a team, we will proceed with the artwork and the official shirts design. As of now, we really like the idea of keeping last years F3K team logo (of course with the date changed to 2013) as the perenial F3K team badge. Then have this year's WC specific art work along with it that will change from team to team going forward. None of this is set in stone, but having an underlying team identity and badge, so to speak, is kinda cool I think.

Of course this goes without saying, you are all free to do as you wish with regard to fund raising shirts and such, but please coordinate with Charlie so we can understand who is doing what. It is so awesome to see such enthusiasm and I in no way want to squelch any of it. So, have at it guys.

As far as a design contest goes, perhaps you guys might consider doing a design that includes the Danish flag in there somewhere. Also, would the winner mind if his design was used as the basis for the official team design? Maybe incorporating a few changes??? Just thinking out loud here.

Proppy, sweet ideas man. The Torrey Pines Gulls are working on organizing some fund raiser contests in the next few to 6 months too.

Thank you all very much.

Cheers.

Mike

Like maybe something as simple as placing a donation jar at the 2012 Blue Skies over Arizona contest by the scorers table?? The contestants there have always been very generous.
In fact...I know Sage will also be making a donation to the team.

What is Mike known for in DLG?

I know Jun is the QT king, GMO is puff the magic dragon working farts, but what does Mike do soo well? Sorry Mike, I have just never had the pleasure of flying with you.

My idea of a good postal contest would be the Juikeorgy. A "blend" (for lack of RCG appropriate word) of all things DLG.


5- 1 minute flights
1- Longest flight 5 minute max
1- Poker Call

15 minute window, Fly in any order! Flexible rules in that you could do 5-1 minutes, longest flight of 3:00 and then go for broke and call 6:35 or so, if you had the time. Miss the poker call and you would be sunk as you only get one!


Any order of the task is fine. You could do 2- 1 minutes and find a hat sucker and do the poker call and go big and then not care how long you get on last flight. You must fly a total of 7 flights ( 5 QT flights, 1 poker, and 1 last flight) minimum but you could do poker more than once if there was still window time.

A special score card could be made up for this to keep track of the task.
