Calling All Wildwater Racers

Wildwater Budget is Best in a Decade

by Doug Ritchie
Vice Chairman
USA Wildwater

March 22, 2006

We are calling all Wildwater Racers to come qualify for the USA Wildwater Team at Team Trials. The preliminary 2006 budget for USAWildwater calls for our best athlete funding in a decade for racers competing at the World Championships/World Cups. The preliminary budget calls for an allocation of $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.
