Happy New Year! I hope you all will have a great 2004. This letter is in regards to dates and information you need to be aware of about our quest to the 2005 Deaflympics in Australia.
USADTH is in the process of securing sponsorship and for our team. Though we are awaiting the final word on this matter we would like for each of you to understand what you will need to do in the meantime. At this time we're looking at approximately raising $4,800.00 each. Those who have made the National team should begin working on raising these funds. USADSF will be sending you fundraising information that will prove helpful and divisive.
Kellie McComas, Logistic Coordinator, will be working with each of you over the next several months. She will be in contact with you to help with numerous fundraising strategies that will assist you in raising the necessary funds.
Our next meeting as a team will be in Houston, Texas from May 6-9, 2004. We will be participating in the Annual USA Team Handball National Championship. Please make plans to arrive to Houston on Thursday May 6, and departure after 4pm on Sunday May 9. Also, tentatively, there will be one other tournament before we leave for Australia. Additional information will be forwarded to each of you regarding this.
If you have any questions or concerns please feel contact Kellie at: JamesKellie19@aol.com.
Go for the GOLD!
