World University Archery Championships

As many of you know, I recently secured a spot on the US archery team going to the World University Championships this summer in Legnica, Poland.  This is a dream come true, and I am so excited to represent my country (and university) in the sport of archery! Hopefully this will be the launching point for my competitive career in this wonderful sport.

The majority of the costs of this trip are covered, but I am responsible for some fees and personal expenses, including: $250 deposit upon making the team, new luggage, plane tickets and associated costs for training camps, baggage fees, transportation to the departing airport, meals outside of what is provided at the event, extra uniforms, some back-up equipment items, etc.  I'd also like to shoot a few competitions between now and July to help me prepare for high pressure situations, and as anyone in this sport knows entrance fees can be pricy.  

Please help me make this dream become a reality, and thank you for your support!

To my collegiate friends: I know that you're poor (so am I, obviously).  All I'm asking is that you give up one drink this week (or 2 if PBR is your beverage of choice) and donate $5.  Help me represent our country in an international setting in one of the most awesome ways ever - by shooting arrows, like a badass. ;)
