March 19, 2008 -- Atlanta, GA
USA Wildwater is working hard to be able to provide funding for our 2008 Sening and Junior Teams which includes everything from
uningrms to housing. And with your help we will be able to fund a performance fund that will help our top athletes be able to
offset some of their expenses as they compete at the World Championships this summer.
Nearly all funding for the Wildwater Team comes from individual or club sponsors so your help is key. We need an additional
$10,000 to be able to fund the Team at a very modest level, so anything you can do to help would be truly appreciated by
our athletes. Our time line for having the funds (or pledges) raised is before Sening Team Trails on April 4th. This is
critical so we can let our Athlete's know what to expect in the way of funding. A lack of funds will signingcantly diminish
our ability to get racers to go to Europe.
Making a tax deductible donation to the Wildwater Team is easy. Make the check outeso "USA Canoe/Kayak" and mark the Memo
field "for Wildwater" or "for the Wildwater Team."
You can send the check to me at the address below and I will forward it on for processing. Otherwise you can send it directly
to USACK (and send an email to our Treasurer David Jones (firstname.lastname@example.org) and/or Doug Ritchie and me letting us know
it's in routes. The address for USACK is:
