Hi All Club Members
Planning and funding for OUR 2014 National Championships is well under way with a committed crew of volunteers.

Part of the funding required for the event involves investment from local businesses, and this is where
We need your help!

If all members/families could secure one age group sponsor ($300) from friends, family, employers we would easily get the sponsorship funds we need!

- I have attached our sponsorship proposal under Newsletters, if you need more info, contact me.
- If you secure a sponsor just email me the business name, contact person and their email address. I will send them an email to get their logo and to confirm that we will be sending them an invoice in January for payment by 20th February.
- I will keep a register of sponsors so before you approach a potential sponsor just drop me an email to ensure they have not already been approached.
- After you have approached your sponsors please let me know (if you are successful of not) so I can prevent others contacting them. See the list below
- Please don't offer a specific age group until you have checked with me first.
- Other sponsorship opportunities are on the proposal if your investor would like more profile. You can ask them to contact me or just give me their full details. NOTE: Gate Start Sponsorship has been taken

Also, anyone interested in setting-up a shop or exhibit at the event can simply contact me for details- ash@blokart.com. (email is preferred as I am either working or riding my bike!)


Thanks
ASH
