Default Naples race count down

Naples race:

Hi guys,

Thank you so much to all of you that responded to our email that we were going to have our annual Naples race we were really happy at the response and yes the race is on,
The reason it has taken us so long to post the event is basically the economy, as many of you know a race or any kite boarding event takes money and sponsors, many of our sponsors have been touched by the economy and it is really difficult to put on an event like this without support,

One of the ways we got sponsorship in the past was to ask companies for sponsorship and put their logos on the riderís shirts and this worked very well regardless to what kind of company you have if you would be interested in having your logo on the shirt please let us know (ASAP)

The Naples race has become a very successful event thanks to the kite boarding community, we put the race together but it became successful because of the overwhelming support of you guys, this year we are asking you for your support so that we can once again have a great time, if you are interested in helping us we would really appreciate it, we are looking for prizes for the riders and any others support you could give us.

IF WE DO NOT GET ANY SUPPORT OR SPONSORSHIP WE WILL DO THE RACE ANYWAY BECAUSE AFTER ALL WE DO THIS FOR THE PASSION OF KITEBOARDING AND TO KICK OUR FRIENDS BUTS IN A RACE SO WHAT THE HELL COME AND HAVE A GREAT KITEBOARDING DAY ANYWAY.

I WILL KEEP POSTING UPDATES ON SPONSORS, WINNERS PRIZES AND ANY OTHER INFO CONCERNINGTHE EVENT.

THANKS
KELLY, ENRIQUE
