and it is easy to get discouraged when working in this sport. Even if you are getting "paid."
So, I don't want to see that happen to either. I think USOF had got two good ones.
Yes, good luck to them both. Problem is that the ED expenses for next year (salary,travel,etc) would appear to be more than USOF's gross income, or do we still have foundation support for another year?
The understanding between the foundation and USOF includes significant, although diminishing, support in both the second and third years of this effort. The expectation is that through a variety of efforts, including obviously those of the ED, USOF income will increase to match the tapering support.
Which underscores PG's point, at least in part ... we've got some great folks, and if you see ways to help them, let them know!
