Default USA F3A Team Website is UP

Gentlemen,

After many months of arduous labor, [link=http://f3a.us/index.php]YOUR 2011 USA F3A team website is finally up!![/link]
.
Here you can find the details about YOUR 2011 USA F3A precision aerobatics team as they go for the gold at this year's [link=http://www.modelaircraft.org/events/f3awc2011.aspx]F3A World Championships[/link] being held right here in the good 'ole U.S. of A!!
.
Some of you may be asking yourself, "What can I do to help my 2011 USA F3A team to victory?". Well, on the website you will find several ways that you can contribute to ensure that YOUR F3A precision aerobatics team is standing on top of the podium on Monday, August 1st.
.
The first, and easiest way, is to send a direct contribution to Colleen Pierce at AMA Headquarters. Her information is right on the front page of the website. (BTW - It's tax deductible)
.
The next way is to purchase official World Championship apparel thru the [link=http://nsrca.us/]NSRCA website[/link]. They are the EXCLUSIVE distributor of F3A clothing apparel. You can waste your time searching all of the "high-end" clothing retailers - Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom's, Macy's, Tractor Supply Company . . . . not ONE of these stores carries official F3A Polo shirts, hats, or T-shirts. So click over there now and dust off that PayPal account.
.
The final way to contribute to YOUR F3A team is by participating in the [link=http://f3a.us/index.php?option=com_content&view=section&layout=blog&id=5&Itemid=6]official USA F3A team Pattern Plane auction.[/link]
.
The top prize in the auction is an autographed and numbered Wind S Pro. Not only is this airplane fully assembled and READY TO FLY, but it has already been test flown and trimmed out by Team Captain Andrew Jesky. Just think about how far ahead of the other guys in your class you will be when you pull this gem out of your truck at the next contest. Not only will you have saved weeks of building time, but also many flights trying to get the setup and trimming perfect.
.
Also up for auction are TWO signed and autographed 3D Hobby Shop Osiris ARF pattern airplanes (New In Box). For anyone who hasn't flown one of these beauties, they are the perfect pattern plane for anyone who doesn't want to commit to a full 2 meter pattern ship. One of the great features of this airplane is that it flies on one 5S LiPo pack, exactly 1/2 of the 10S pack that a full size pattern plane uses. So when you're ready to move up, your battery investment is not wasted!! However, these planes fly so well that you may never feel the need to get a 2 meter plane!!
.
All bids for these exciting products are being accepted thru the email address on the web site. All bids will close at midnight, July 20, 2011. The winner will be announced after funds are verified and shipping will be coordinated with the lucky winner after the World Championships.
.
There have been rumors swirling around the internet about more exciting pattern goodies being added to the auction. Be sure to check the website often to make sure that you don't miss out.

Do the proceeds from any of these three ways to participate go directly to support the costs of Team USA or is this simply a way to contribute to AMA & NSRCA?
I purchased a shirt off the NSRCA website thinking I was directly supporting Team USA. After the fact, I got suspicious of how the funds were being used and asked that question and received a response shown here: http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_10577621/tm.htm
The answer appears to be saying that the proceeds will be used to fund the activities of hosting the World’s event rather than directly supporting the Team USA Members.
Since making donations & contributions is a personal decision for people it should be very clear for people of how their contributions will be used so they can make an informed choice. Can you please clarify?
Go Team USA!!!

FW,

If you send a check directly into Colleen Pierce and designate "US F3A Team", your money will be put into the team's account. Also, if you bid on any of those sweet airplanes, that money is going directly into the team's PayPal account.
.
Tim Jesky is selling "Team USA" T-shirts and has a limited selection left, and that money goes directly into the team's account.
.
I am not an officer of the NSCRA so I cannot speak for them and how they are going to spend their money - if they end up making any at all - on either the WC or the Team.
.
However, one thing that I'm quite sure of is that if the AMA and the NSRCA cannot raise enough money to put on the World Championships, then it will be kinda pointless to raise money for the US Team.

Thank you for posting this Keith! Good info.

Derek showed up at our contest over the weekend and we all bought a bunch of stuff in support. Hope everyone else that has some extra money can do the same. Please support our team! It's very important to help pay for their costs to compete. As they put so much time and money into prep for the worlds, that it is very important for us to help them not worry about the costs!

Scott,

Thanks!! I hope y'all are spreading the word about the great stuff we have for auction for the US F3A team. Last I heard the bids were coming in faster than Al can sort thru them, so if anyone has been wanting to get their hands on some sweet pattern equipment, I recommend you check with the family financial officer and get your bid in!!!

Hopefully the AMA will post updates like during the Nats. . . I have to work most of the WC's, so I won't be able to post anything. . .

Hey guys,

We still have everything going for the Auction. We have one bid on the Wind S Pro for 4,000, but we dont have any bids on the Osiris's or the contra system. Guys check this stuff out, its a chance to help out the team and get some pretty cold products.

Hi Guy's,
