So how is everybody doing with securing sponsors for this season? renewing current sponsors? finding new ones?

Against the advice of this group, I went ahead and put togeher a sponsorship packet. I know I am late for this season but I figure I am early for next year!

My team has not had to big a deal getting product sponsors but money sponsors have been almost impossible to get. Our biggest money sponsor last year has had a tough time with the economy and have decided not to renew the deal we had last year. We are still waiting on 2 potential sponsors and we should know about them in 2 – 3 weeks.

You are a bit late to be sending out material to sponsors but its always worth a try. Good luck.

before they lost Mercury as their title sponsor. I shopped around for 2 months or so and eventually found a team in late November that I'm very happy with. Now the Mercury team is the new Mattel Hot Wheels team. Before I left Mercury, i talked with the team manager and he said their new uniforms come complete with flames on the shorts!! Now how cool is that?

Good luck, let us know how it all turns out!
