The meat of the matter:

The 2014 World Parachuting Championships are in the Czech Republic (FS and artistic) and Bosnia and Herzegovina (CF and SA) this August, and the U.S. teams have been selected. Unlike many other countries, the U.S. teams don’t receive any government funding. The limited assistance they do get is interest from USPA’s Team Trust Fund (which you can also donate to here: TTF donation).

Team manager Chuck Akers has set up a GoFundMe project to raise additional money for the FS and artistic teams (www.gofundme.com/ay5dh4), and Eli Godwin has one for the CF and SA teams (www.gofundme.com/bv48u8). Both goals are $5,000 but I’m sure no one would mind if those were smashed ;)

The money raised will be evenly distributed directly to the teams. Each team is responsible for its own travel arrangements so money raised will be reimbursement for whatever they have or will purchase to get them to Czech Republic.

And now, meet your 2014 U.S. Parachute Teams!
