What Does it Cost?

Have you ever wondered what it costs to send our teams to a world championships and where the money comes from?  It will cost about $52,000 to send our teams to Berlin.

Where does the money come from?  Each team member is asked to raise $700 from their local area. The silent auction, 50/50 cash raffle and team auction held at National's each year is also earmarked for the US Teams.  USA Water Ski also helps out.  How much we get from them is determined by the number of members that specify the ABC as their sport division.  The ABC also contributes to the cause.  Even with all of that, we still need an additional $10,000.  Individual donations, club donations and Brad Pegg memorials have made a significant dent in that, but we are still short of our goal. Tax deductable donations can be made to the US Teams by sending a check made out to US Barefoot Teams and sending it to Doug Koch, ABC Treasurer, 10696Morningside Drive, Dalton, MN 56324. Receipts will be provided. 

The Midwest Region is also challenging all other regions to be creative and hold a fundraiser for US Teams at their regional tournament.  The donations will be acknowledged at National's and the region raising the most will be asked to proclaim "THE_____________ REGION IS THE BEST!"

Help us reach our goal!
