Recruiting all Australian slingers!!!
Jan 16th, 2020 at 6:31pm
 
I'm thinking that it's time to count and essemble all Australian slingers.
I would like to attempt to put together a Australia team and search for sponsorship to make it to an international competition in the next years .
CA perhaps you can let me know how many are actually registered on the forum?
And also any ideas on company's that may be interested in sponsoring.

I'd be interested!

But I probably won't be able to go for a while. I'll have to get a passport. Have yet to have a need for one of those.

I'm pretty much a caveman. Never even left a state, let alone the country. Tongue

And slinging in a place like Guam or the Balearic Islands... why yes, I certainly think an overseas trip is in order! Wink

Assuming of course the trip is sponsored. If not, I'll see if I can get a job. If I can get one, Definetly look forward to me going!

Prices seem to be cheaper than getting to Mallorca.
This was only a quick Google search but appears that way. I already have support from one company however the amount of sponsorship is undisclosed. I'd appreciate anything to be honest.
Save your pennies and start practicing. Would be nice to get a team together.
Again bump to CA if you could send a list of Australian forum members.

Yeah, I assumed it might be cheaper just because its much closer to here. In either case, There's no way I could go to the Balearic islands this year anyway.

But as you have said, practice is definitely in order! Wink

Oh, good job finding a Sponsor! I never would have assumed we'd ever get that far. "Slinging? what the hell is that... get the hell out of my Office!"

Hmm, aussie would have know - as he sent slings to just about every forum member at one time or another.
Unfortunately I don't have an option to sort members buy country.

Off the top of my head I'd say we probably have half a dozen 'current' members in australia.

Maybe a search thought the new members intro threads would turn them up.

So this sponsorship - how did you get it ?
I really need to try.

so quick search of the intro thread:
metalode
CrazyBrave333?
Al Paca
MickB
sdrum
Meshurock
Mick
Camo-Sling
BeachSlinger
Gnimbly
Gadge

That's going back to 2010.
There may be more.

Some of those posts are up to 10 years old. So emails my not be current or even checked any more.

But it's somewhere to start, and most of them - if you can contact them - will probably know one or 2 other slingers.

Times like this, I really miss ludek. He had all the addresses Sad

probably best to go with emails rather than pm's.
Most of those haven't been around for a while.

If their member details doesn't give you an email option let me know and I'll dig it out of there details for you Smiley

Ha ha , might not be received the way we intended ha ha
Ill keep trying to recruit but it appears were the most active Australian slingers on the forum. Lucky were somewhat close (250-300km apart) at least we will be able to meet .
Save those pennies jack Im serious about getting to a comp soon and Guam seems the most likely.

If I don't get that money for next year, I will be sure to commit Seppuku!

I would be greatly ashamed in myself if I miss a nice vacation in Guam. Especially a slinging vacation.

So I'll be sure to sacrifice several goats in the hope that my CV will land me a job.
