Help Send D'arce to World Championships

I recently competed in the World Team Trials to determine the team that will represent the USA at the World Archery Championships in Bangkok, Thailand in November. After 3 days of competition, I finished 2nd in the trials and have been named to the team.


I am needing to raise money to be able to fulfill this opportunity of representing the USA at this championship. I am currently seeking sponsors to help this opportunity come true.



A little bit of background. I have been shooting archery for 15 years in 3 different disciplines (longbow, olympic recurve and compound). This is will be my 3rd World Championship. I was fortunate to make the previous teams for 2009 in Czech Republic and in 2011 in Turin, Italy. I have been named to the USA National Team for two years as well as having brought home medals in both the European Grand Prix in England and the Para-Pan American Games in Mexico.


I currently own 11 CA State Records, 2 National Records and 1 World Record for archery. I am very dedicated to my sport and it has supplied me with opportunities to travel and interact with teams throughout the world. All of this would not be possible without your support.


If you need a tax-deductible donation, please contact me directly so I may provide you with the information.


Many thanks,


D'arce

Wanted to send an update. Team USA made it to Thailand with all of our luggage and bows. We have finished two days of unofficial practice. Tomorrow, we have official practice followed by Opening Ceremonies tonight.

There are over 300 athletes shooting in seven different divisions. The USA will be shooting to medal in three events. The individual elimination, team elimination and mixed team elimination.

Opening ceremonies are supposed to be televised, but you may have to do some hunting to find it is the U.S. The weather has been in the high 90s with 80%+ humidity. It makes Florida feel like Alaska.

More updates to come!

Everything is in sight! After shooting a new personal best at 50m and shooting with an amazing group of people at my training camp last week at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, I had to share a copy of my scorecard. I am truly grateful to a dear friend (who shall remain nameless) who rebuilt my bow for me last week and I can only hope to shoot as great as it does.
