Team USA Needs Your Support

This July, six of the finest discus launch glider (F3K) pilots in the USA -- three juniors and three seniors -- head to Hungary to compete in the biannual F3K World Championships. Easily one of the strongest teams the USA has ever fielded, each pilot is laser focused on the podium. But getting six pilots and their gliders across the Atlantic is not inexpensive.

The team needs your support to bring home gold!

Donations can be made on the GoFundMe Page Here

Your donation automatically enters you into a prize pool. Prizes will be announced at a later date and will include great items from amazing sponsors.

  • Each $10 donation is worth 1 ticket.
  • When you purchase 15 tickets ($150) you can ALSO choose a Team USA T-shirt or a Hat
  • When you purchase 35 tickets ($350) you will ALSO receive an official Team USA jersey.

Plus, the team is donating at least four airframes: A CX5, BAMF, Vortex and a Deviant.

When you make a $1000 donation, you will receive 100 tickets AND an RTF airframe when the team returns from Hungary.

What are you waiting for? Donate today!

We can talk about that if we get there. We’re in a pretty big hole right now.

Iím organizing the Blue Skies Over Nevada contest the weekend of October 5-6th, at the sod farm in Sandy Valley. I know itís after the worlds, but If we have any money left over after paying the bills, I will donate it to the team to help out.
Itís only about 3 hours from LA, and 150 acres of grass, no trees and lots of thermals. Toby and George Morris have said they are going to attend so come out for a fun weekend and help the US team.
