2008 USA F3F Viking Race Team support raffle!!

Hiya, guys!!

Since the AMA does not support our F3F team, LEG has started a a support raffle at http://leadingedgegliders.com/viking/
There is 300 tickets to be sold at $10 each for a shot at five great LEG aircraft:

LEG EPP 60" P-51D Mustang
LEG EPP 2M Crossover
LEG EPP LeFish
LEG EPP 1D
LEG EPP 3 Pack of P-Dogs combat wings

This year's Viking Race will be held at Donovaly, Slovakia from August 29, 2008 to Sept 6, 2008. Additional information can be found at:
http://www.f3f.sk/Docs/Propozicie/VR2008F3F.EN.pdf

Let's support them with our donations. I'll lead off with 10 tickets!

AFTER AUGUST 20, ALL TICKET PURCHASES WILL BE DONATIONS.

Thanks allot Mark! The support is so appreciated! Here is a bit more info for those interested:

Leading Edge Gliders is holding a raffle of 5 quality EPP kits (seen above by Mark's post) to help raise funds for the USA F3F Viking Race Team members. You may not realize that unlike F3J and F3B, the AMA offers no financial assistance for the team whatsoever. All the team members buy their own airline tickets, lodging, food, planes, everything.
Jack Cooper has come to the teams' rescue, (Thank You Jack!) by providing this raffle. For just $10 per ticket, you will have a 1 in 300 chance to win one of 5 EPP kits, valued to $100.00
If you are a winner, the kit will be shipped to your address, worldwide. The raffle will close after August 20th, or upon sale of all the limited 300 tickets. You can enter the raffle at

http://leadingedgegliders.com/viking

Additionally, the team has had some t shirts designed by graphic artist Reed Sherman of Jart fame. The shirts sport a retro styled logo, with the names of all the team members, including 12 year old Jr. Kyler Paulson. The same link will work very soon for purchase of t-shirts, which are $25.00. Shipping will be a little extra, and likely will be USPS in the USA team spirit.

Any and all support, large and small, is very appreciated by Warren Day, Doug Reel, Target, Kyler Paulson, and myself, Kyle Paulson.

Fly fast and safe,
Kyle Paulson

Just the exchange rate alone makes this an expensive trip for Team USA, and as Kyle noted, the US F3F team gets no financial support from the AMA. So hold off buying that next rx (you already have a dozen anyway), buy a couple tix and a shirt and support your team!

If you're not an American, buy a couple tix in the raffle, get a great chance at some nice swag courtesy Jack Cooper and LEG, and support our poor, starving, underdog (think Jamaican Bobsled) team!

Thanks guys!!

I hear the Jack is sweetening the pot FURTHER!! This guy is unbeliveable!

For anyone that mans up by purchasing (10) raffle tickets, he's going to send them a LEG T-shirt with the new graphics, and a LEG hat!

That's super cool; thanks Jack!

Plenty left....
Jack told me that he really would like to end the thing early, and not make it to the cut-off date. I would too, I'm itching to see who wins!
