We are the University Of Houston Clear Lake - Hawks Cricket Club. Last year we particapated in the South-West Regionals and the American College Cricket National CHampionship. With our performance and talent we won 2 out of 3 matches we played and also secured a title for "The Best New Team 2012". We were also ranked #14 all over US and Canada with our debut tournament's performance.
Our team will be participating in the upcoming American College Cricket National Championship which is to be held in Florida (March 13th-17th 2013). We have been practicing really hard for this year's Championship and will surely do better this time.
But unfortunately, as we are a new team at our University we couldn't get sufficient funds. There are many talented players backing out as they will have to put money from there pockets. The money given shall be used for covering the travelling expenses and other miscellaneous expenses like stay etc. We could be very grateful if you can help us the wishes and money.
I hereby request if you could help us with any form of financial support. The team has pulled in enough money to buy the required sporting equipment and registration fee. And University has funded us with $400 for now. Below are the budget details which will be mandatory for the participation in the Championship.
Travel dates 11th March - 18th March
Tournament dates - 13th - 17th March
Rental cars (2 mini vans) - $450*2 = $900
Fuel expenses - (2400 miles approx) = $700
Room stay 5 rooms * 80/ night * 6 days = $2400
Food Expenses 10/day * 15 players * 6 = $900
Total Expenses = $ 4900
We will be grateful to you for your help.
