Delta has nothing to do with it, really. We're flying it under the Delta flag, but the whole event is John and my idea. Delta charters don't allow for us to spend $ on these types of things. We're going to solicite outside of supermarkets for donations, I've been hitting up people for sponsorship, trying to locate the soldiers, setting it up with the guide, it's been pretty much just me, up until this point.
If anybody wants to donate, PM me. Surprisingly enough, I've gotten very little response. Sponsors like Final Glide, Final Destination, Bettis custom calls all jumped on board with excellent donations. We've got a few others who are going to contribute cash... Our problem is involvement. People want to just come to these things and and have them be great events. Very few want to get the word out, I've gotten no PM's about raising money or getting involved in any way by anybody local. It's not a guilt trip I'm laying on you guys, but I am. We need help. We need people to come to the shoot and bid on the items being donated.
August 17th. Noon. West Penn sportsmans club. Come out. Tell people you know. Clay busters, hunters, ex military. Help us help them.
Don, thanks for the offer. Anything you'd do would be appreciated. Most of the items for the hunt, like ammo, is being sponsored. HOPEFULLY. We need items to auction off for other expenditures, likke the hotel room, food, gas.
I was also thinking about getting them a snow goose call and getting it engraved. Just as a memento and an extra Thank You.
