As part of the National Zlot in 2014, all participants will receive a Souvenir Program Book. It will list the Zlot schedule, additional information and good wishes from everyone who places an advertisement in the book. The book will help with the costs for participants, the Zlot, and can even raise some funds for your Nest. Here is how it works.
First of all, if your Nest has athletes that are participating at the Zlot, the cost per participant for room, meals and transportation to and from the Zlot is $250. This entry fee will need to be sent in with your application prior to the Zlot. Following submittal of the application and entry fee, advertisements can be solicited for the program book. Any money raised by you for the book will come back to you as a refund. So, if you solicit $250 in ads, you will get a $250 refund which will pay for one athlete to attend the Zlot. After all of your athletes entry fees are covered, for every excess dollar you raise, you will receive ½ of the amount over the $250 back for your Nest. So, if you have four participants attending the Zlot and you raise $1200, you will get a refund of $1000 for the four athletes and another $100 as ½ the excess amount.
If your Nest does not have any athletes participating in the Zlot, you can still take part in the fundraising aspect of the event. Any money your Nest solicits in ads will get you ½ the amount back after the Zlot. So, if you solicit a $100 ad, after the Zlot is completed, your Nest will get a $50 refund as the fundraiser.
I am certainly hoping that all of our Nests participate in the fundraiser and take this opportunity to support our youth Members. I know that a lot of you remember when you went to a Zlot. I certainly remember going to the National Zlot and how exciting and fun it was. I am so glad that my own children are able to participate in the Zlot and compete with their Falcon friends from different regions. I hope that you feel the same way, and that we can keep the Zlot going for our children’s children.
