Voted, I'm going on a limb to guess that the sniper catches his wife with another guy and wacks them.

I'm just curious as to how these two teams will be selected?

I also vote for the sponsorship towards national events, rather than towards specific teams. That way, everybody gets to enjoy the funds rather than a select few.

I think what Brian McIlmoyle meant is that the "selection criteria" is whoever is writting the cheque selects whoever he wants.

Thanks again for all of your votes. I hope to have an exclusive exerpt from ONE SHOT, TWO KILLS, up on ASC within 24 hours or so.

On the sponsorship issue, I have been making those kind of decisions at law firms for my whole career (I really enjoy community and charity work).

My thought was to put open a period where teams would submit sponsorship proposals (say in Jan or Feb or so, once I know what my sponsorship budget will be, but before I have had a chance to spend it ) and then review them to see which is the best fit for our firm philosophy, image and exposure etc. Since I am not a member of any team, there would be no conflict of interest. The reason Ontario was chosen was two fold, one because 99% of our client base comes from Ontario, and two, because it is a hell of a lot easier for me to drop by and see our sponsorship in action.

The idea of a national event is interesting. I'm not promising anything, but if this has been done before or you have ideas on how to arrange such a thing, please pm me.

Russ

I will definately put out the call for proposals early in the new year.

Lawdog, I like your idea of proposals. I also like the idea of the Toronto area (I can crash at my inlaws)... It would be very cool if this could be something done at the national level, perhaps if you just sponsored one event, rather than the 2 event committment. I'd attend a big game next year, and I'm 14hrs away.

Voted.
Hopefully she wins. Nothin' like the backing of ASC, bound to get some good numbers.

On the behalf of Easy Company,
good luck!
