More Sponsorship is Needed

Wildwater Budget is Best in a Decade

by John Pinyerd
Chairman - USA Wildwater

March 22, 2006 -- Atlanta, GA

The preliminary 2006 budget for USAWildwater calls for our best athlete funding in a decade. The preliminary budget calls for allocation $5,000 in funding for housing and meals. The board is also evaluating methods for providing additional funding for athletes that perform well at the World Championships and the World Cups.

While it is our goal to fully fund the travel expenses for all athletes who qualify for the team, this can only be accomplished through additional sponsorship. For those folks that will not be able to race for the USA, anything that you can do to help fund our athlete sponsor ship will deeply be appreciated.

For more details, see the "preliminary" budget.
