Thank you...

...for stopping by to learn about our bid for the World Championships. We are very excited to be invited to compete on the U.S. Team at the 2008 World Trial in Wales this year. Also see the USBCHA letter.

As you may imagine, this is a very expensive endeavor, and so far no corporate sponsorship has emerged to help offset the enormous cost to field the US team. A rough break-down of the costs per handler are as follows:

Airfare (handler) $1,200
Airfare (dogs) $2,000
Trial Entry Fees ($250 per dog)    $500
Room & Board $825
Car Rental $850
Meals & Incidentals $650
TOTAL $6,025

So as you see, this is expensive. We are asking for sponsorships to help offset the costs of running in this prestigous trial. All sponsors will receive a logo presentaion on the GemStar website (which qualifies as advertising), as well as real-time email updates on World Trial results and standings. Consult your tax advisor for deductibility of sponsorship costs.

Sponsorship is EASY. Simply click
to make a secue, online PayPal donation. No PayPal account required.

Questions? Please feel free to contact, or, phone 661.270.9281.

We look foward to scoring well overseas! Thank you again.
