Apparel soon, but we are open for raffle business

OK everybody, your 2013 F3K team has their raffle ticket store open and we are ready for your business. We will completing our shirt/jersey designs soon, so those will be available for order in a couple weeks. But for right now, and on to the end of 2012, please take advantage of Frank Slaughter's generous donation matching pledge. He has pledged to match your donations dollar for dollar up to $2000 by 12-31-2012. That means that if we receive $2,000 worth of donations, raffle tickets, or apparel purchases he will put in his own $2,000 to match it. We have just less than 3 full months to take full advantage of Franks offer.

As a member of my 4th FAI World Champs team, I am always amazed at the generosity of our community. Guys like Frank lead by example, and I can only hope that we all honor his pledge by taking him up on his offer in the next 3 months. I will be making my own monetary donation toward the end of the year just so I can realize a 100% gain on my investment, and help our team from the inside.

We have commitments for 4 awesome WC competition DLG's as raffle prizes so far, and the list of goodies will be getting longer in the coming weeks. We have commitments from Horizon Hobby, and Soaring USA along with other major raffle contributors already and we are just finalizing the specifics of their generous and consistent donations. Please show them how much you all appreciate their continuous support of all that we do in soaring and DLG in particular. Please visit their websites and doing a little Christmas shopping. That new Habu jet from HH looks so good, I think I have to have it

Thank you all very much for your support.

We have some exciting news to share. The AMA has announced that it will be offering support for our 3 junior team members as well as the support for the 3 senior pilots and one team manager. I would like the thank the AMA for their generous support and also our previous Junior Team as I believe their winning the Gold in Sweden last year probably had a lot to do with getting additional support from the AMA. Thank you Nick, David and Lee you guys did awesome and it's still paying dividends! Mike Smith has come up with a team budget that we are hoping can be displayed on our website. We will know more about that soon.

Great News Charlie!!!

Out of curiosity, why only support for one team manager? Don't we have a Senior and a junior manager?

There is no answer to why Frank. It is as the AMA has told us and that's it.

We are very happy that the juniors are included in the support that the AMA provides for our FAI world teams.

Our budget includes costs for the Jr. TM, and the Juniors Chaparones (Fathers or Mothers) Good new there is that Gavin counts as both, so we only need to raise money for two non-TM dads/moms.

Thank you Bob. Thank you again Tim.

Nice, clean and neat. I think that's a stottstudios trademark. I like!

We need to get some nice Nike hats to put this badge on!

My wife got me a couple of Reebok hats to wear for the team selects... They're blue with a red visor. It had USA in front, a reeeally nice US flag in the back and reebok on one side.
Wold love to see something similar-- Maybe Badge in front, USA one side, flag on the other side and Nike in the back!
oooooohhh...
Blue would be really nice with minimal white and red trims.
Beige-- everything (badge, flag and lettering) will pop out!!!! Nice.

Nope, I will get that started week after next. Taking the family to Disneyland next week during fall break. I did grab the pdf that Jun posted and will work on getting it print ready next week. I will try and get some samples printed before Beat the Heat for the people there. I also have something else up my sleeve that I am hoping to have done by then.

Awesome Alan, your versions were great but now that we have the official version it would be cool to reproduce it.

Thank you in advance,
