Shooting for Gold's New Incentives: Archery Fantasy Trip, 2008 Autographed Olympic Team Shirt

Colorado Springs, CO - USA Archery has announced new incentives for Shooting for Gold, including a limited-time opportunity to win official, autographed 2008 U.S. Olympic Team memorabilia - and an additional "Archery Fantasy Trip" and new bow giveaway. Shooting for Gold is the organization's once-every-four-years fundraising campaign, which runs only through the Olympic and Paralympic Games. 


During National Indoor Championships (February 24 - March 11), every single donation of $25 or more will be entered to win an official 2008 U.S. Olympic Team shirt by Polo Ralph Lauren, distributed only to U.S. Olympic Team Members and not available for public sale. (Fundraisers donating to their own pages are eligible to win). The shirt, pictured to the right, will be personally autographed for the lucky winner by all five 2008 U.S. Olympic Team Members (Brady Ellison, Khatuna Lorig, Vic Wunderle, Jennifer Nichols, Butch Johnson). 


USA Archery has also announced that, in addition to an "Archery Fantasy Trip" for the top fundraiser - a new Hoyt bow of their choice, and an all-expense paid trip to the U.S. Olympic Training Center to work with Team USA athletes and coaches to set it up - an identical "Archery Fantasy Trip" will also be given to one random donor, whose name will be selected at the end of the Shooting for Gold fundraising campaign.


These incentives are in addition to the limited-edition 2012 Olympic Archery merchandise (shirt and hat set, not available for public sale) which are given for every $500 raised or donated.
