Help for the GB Women's Softball Team

Beitragvon kati » Di Dez 15, 2009 11:47

Dear Stefan,

I would like to ask for your help on behalf of the Great Britain Women's Fastpitch Softball Team.

As you probably know, we finished second at the European Championships in Valencia this past summer and qualified for the World Championships next year -- but we have no money to go.

So we have entered a British Airways contest that could win us 16 free flights to wherever the World Championships will be held. We've now been shortlisted, and the winner will be decided by public online votes. The voting deadline is December 21.

The contest is only open to Britons to enter, so we're not competing with any other country.

I'd like to ask you to read the information below, go online and vote for us, and then -- much more importantly -- circulate the information as widely as you can to people you know in German baseball and softball and ask them to vote for us too for the sake of softball solidarity!

If you can do this, I will be very grateful!



The Great Britain Women's Fastpitch Softball Team earned a place in the 2010 Softball World Championships by finishing second in European Championships this past summer, the team's highest-ever European placing.

But the team receives no public funding because softball is no longer an Olympic sport. Players and staff had to pay their own way to compete for their country at the European Championships, but the cost of preparing for and competing in the World Championships, wherever they're held, will beyond what our players and their families can afford.

So the team has entered a British Airways contest called “Great Britons”, where the prize could be 16 desperately-needed free flights that can get the majority of our players and staff to the World Championships. Now the team has been shortlisted along with seven other entries, and the winner will be determined by public vote.

So please go online, type in the url and cast your vote for the GB Women's Team entry submitted by first base player MORGAN PARKERSON.

Just click on Morgan's name on the Judges' Shortlist and then hit the VOTE NOW button under Morgan's photo. You'll need to do a quick registration, and then you can vote.

And then please get everyone you know and everyone you can reach by way of email, Facebook, MySpace, Twitter etc to vote as well!

Voting closes on December 21.

Winning this contest could make all the difference between the GB Women's Softball Team being able to go to the World Championships and having to turn down its place.

Thanks very much for your help!

Bob Fromer
GB Softball Team Manager
