The Belt Fly Fishers is a nonprofit club associated with Trout Unlimited and was founded as a means by which to maintain a healthy and sustainable wild trout population in the local waters. It is also a social club where members can contribute to other members and guests their knowledge of fishing techniques, fly patterns, and river etiquette at monthly meetings. It is also a forum for discussing problems such as fishing, pressure, diseases, and river and stream access and providing input to federal and state agencies. It funds local projects through an annual banquet/auction fundraiser.

Fundraising Plan for The Belt Fly Fishers
A case statement is the rationale and justification of any fundraising event. The rationale behind this fundraiser is to hopefully make enough money to:
1) Provide funds for various local projects to protect rivers and streams, provide access, provide signage at access points, etc.
2) Provide seed money for next year’s fundraiser. As a nonprofit organization, Belt Fly Fishers can justify their fundraiser as a means to provide an entertaining evening to members and the public, increase public awareness of the port and the need to maintain a healthy environment for trout and other species, and to raise funds for projects associated with these goals.
3) Support Trout Unlimited.
SWOT Analysis

Small, organization simplified
Members with variety of expertise
Motivation high love of sport

Small, not politically powerful by itself
Limited fund for high level speakers
Board members are volunteers, limited time for multiple fundraisers

Fly fishing population growing
More private individuals and agencies requesting…...

...Sports today are the highlight of American life in a great majority of people. They are enjoyable whether you are playing them or watching them. This is the same all over the world. In some countries, a certain sport is the backbone or the main attraction. A majority of sports are played in the U.S. and in other countries but a great deal of them are only played in the U.S. Why is this? Is this because other countries have no interest in our sports? Is it that maybe countries are just unaware of U.S. played sports? Whatever the case may be, sports expansion would have a huge impact showing a sense of unity within countries. Though, certain cultural factors must be relinquished before integration can happen. ​​​​​​​​An introduction to the sport in other countries must be the first step in the integration process. People need an incentive to be transformed into a fan from a spectator. Seeing the sport will give people an opportunity to learn it and make a decision to determine if the sport is appealing to them (Ipatenco). I believe that before it is decided what sport to integrated into a country, research needs to be done to ensure that the sport is not offending to the country’s religion and beliefs (Hodgson). There are so many different cultures of world and we as Americans have to ensure that we are not intentionally “bashing” or demeaning a culture. Participation in the sport from other countries would be prosperous as well. In sports, hands on experience will......

...Sport (or sports) is all forms of usually competitive physical activity which,[1] through casual or organised participation, aim to use, maintain or improve physical ability and skills while providing entertainment to participants, and in some cases, spectators.[2] Hundreds of sports exist, from those requiring only two participants, through to those with hundreds of simultaneous participants, either in teams or competing as individuals. Sport is generally recognised as activities which are based in physical athleticism or physical dexterity, with the largest major competitions such as the Olympic Games admitting only sports meeting this definition,[3] and other organisations such as the Council of Europe using definitions precluding activities without a physical element from classification as sports.[2] However, a number of competitive, but non-physical, activities claim recognition as mind sports. The International Olympic Committee (through ARISF) recognises both chess and bridge as bona fide sports, and SportAccord, the international sports federation association, recognises five non-physical sports,[4][5] although limits the amount of mind games which can be admitted as sports.[1] Sports are usually governed by a set of rules or customs, which serve to ensure fair competition, and allow consistent adjudication of the winner. Winning can be determined by physical events such as scoring goals or crossing a line first, or by the determination of judges who are scoring......

Fundraising a few million to build the company, and then (3) once the company is clearly succeeding, raise one or more later rounds to accelerate growth. Reality can be messier. Some companies raise money twice in phase 2. Others skip phase 1 and go straight to phase 2. And at Y Combinator we get an increasing number of companies that have already raised amounts in the hundreds of thousands. But the three phase path is at least the one about which individual startups' paths oscillate. This essay focuses on phase 2 fundraising. That's the type the startups we fund are doing on Demo Day, and this essay is the advice we give them. Forces Fundraising is hard in both senses: hard like lifting a heavy weight, and hard like solving a puzzle. It's hard like lifting a weight because it's intrinsically hard to convince people to part with large sums of money. That problem is irreducible; it should be hard. But much of the other kind of difficulty can be eliminated. Fundraising only seems a puzzle because it's an alien world to most founders, and I hope to fix that by supplying a map through it. To founders, the behavior of investors is often opaque—partly because their motivations are obscure, but partly because they deliberately mislead you. And the misleading ways of investors combine horribly with the wishful thinking of inexperienced founders. At YC we're always warning founders about this danger, and investors are probably more circumspect with YC startups than with other......

...To: William “Bill” Hayes, Athletic Director From: Ronnisha Wilson, Head White Team Cheerleading Coach Date: February 17, 2010 Subject: Cheerleading Practice Facility and Injury Assessment Solution Proposal I am writing to propose that a cheerleading specific facility be built and an athletic trainer be hired specifically for cheerleading. The cheerleading program at WSSU rarely has a safe place to practice and there is rarely an athletic trainer present at the practices. About 95% of our athletes’ injuries have occurred with no athletic trainer present. If another sport has practice during our scheduled practice time, our athletes have to practice in the lobby or outdoors. Cheerleading has become more and more dangerous over the years. It is a contact sport with gymnastics put into stunts and pyramids, and requires tossing athletes into the air. Cheerleading is the cause of catastrophic injuries among high school and college athletes. Being a year round sport adds to the danger of the sport; putting extra demands on the body due to no resting period. Injuries are going to happen, but there are measures the university must take to minimize the amount and severity of injuries from every sport. Many safety guidelines have been suggested by the NCAA, Sports Digest, ACCAA and many others. Some suggestions include: * Cheerleaders should have a medical exam before being allowed to practice. * Cheerleaders should be trained by qualified coaches with safety......

Non Traditional Fundraising

...the funding needs for PHA the best. Write a 200- to 300-word summary detailing the three fund-raising strategies you employ. Post your final answer as a Microsoft Word attachment The first form of non-traditional fund raising is Crowd funding which is the collection of finance from backers or the "crowd" to help fund an organization and usually occurs on the internet. The organization could be a nonprofit campaign (e.g. to raise funds for a school or social service organization), or a charitable campaign like an emergency fund for a sick person. Crowd funding models involve a variety of participants. They include the people or organizations that propose the ideas and/or projects to be funded, and the crowd of people who support the proposals. Crowd funding is then supported by an organization which brings together the person who initiates the program and the crowd. Another form of non-traditional fund raising is selling of assets. This is where the organization sells the furniture and equipment that it doesn’t use to generate monies to help run the organization. This is beneficial because the other option is to get rid of it and not make any money on it, it’s like a yard sale, you may not get full price but you can make some money on it. The last form of non-traditional fund raising that I chose is client donations. This is usually overlooked because it is a human services agency that is helping the homeless, people who don’t have anywhere to live. The idea......

...Elle Kloewer Mrs. Peterson College English 9 September 2014 Audience: American Teenage Athletes How Sports Benefit Life         She is sitting there, getting ready for the biggest game of her life. All her emotions are overwhelming her. This will be the last game she plays in a cyclone jersey this season. It all comes down to one play. Her only thoughts are to keep breathing, stay positive, and win. One rebound, that’s all the coach says as she leaves the huddle. Playing a sport is not just about the game itself, but a benefit in every aspect of life. Live life to the fullest, try new things, and enjoy every moment.         Health is one of the most important aspects of any sport. Staying physically fit as a teenager/ young adult is a priority to living a long healthy life. In the Harlan Community High School, a student must have a semester of physical education; however, they can bypass this by being involved in a full semester of sports. Athletes put in hours and hours of physical activity every week. Being physically fit is not only just about working out though. Eating healthy can make you that much more of a powerful athlete. Protein, fruits, and vegetables can help keep the body full of energy and power longer than any energy drink or power bar. Sports also increase your metabolism rates so you can eat more to keep your energy up. Having a high metabolisms allows your body to take in more food without gaining much weight. Your cardiovascular system will also be......

The Principles of Fundraising

...THE PRINCIPLES OF FUNDRAISING IN THE ORGANIZATION Fundraising is a demanding and often a lonely job with all the difficulties inherent in raising money and a steady flow of rejections; it’s easy to get down heaviest. Proper management of the fundraisers job means: keeping in touch with the work of the organization, the person should be in regular touch with the field, setting targets and monitoring progress, access to information, training and meeting other fundraisers and finally free time to think. The principles of fund raising in the organization is discussed below You have to ask for fund as well as authority, one of the principle of fundraising in the organization you have to ask for fund because if you do not ask no one knows that you have problem of fund for carrying out programmes or activities and for local or community fundraising you have to get permission to carry out the fundraising from different authorities that is Government authority, donors, partners, beneficiaries and other stake holders to gain support. Personal approach, the more personal your approach is, the better, for example asking someone face to face is better than; telephoning, which is better than; writing a personal letter; which is better than; giving a presentation to a group of people, better than; putting out a request on the internet. Many fundraisers prefer to send letters because sometimes it is the only way, however, its not the most effective especially when compared to; a......

...Marketing Product Proposal – Nike Mag Nike Inc. (Nike) is an American multinational corporation which was founded in 1964 by Bill Bowerman and Phil Knight with just $1,200. The company takes its name from the Greek goddess of victory. In the authentic athletic footwear, apparel, equipment, and sports and fitness activities accessories, Nike is the design and disruptor leader. Nike also purchased the surf apparel brand Hurley for approximately $100 million in 2002 and Converse for $305 million in 2003. Nike has always challenged the trends of the industry, and thus has been able to attain a premier position through quality, production, innovative products, and aggressive marketing. As a result, Nike recorded $30.6 billion for the fiscal year that ended May 31, 2015, a 14 percent increase over last year. Nike is considered the most dominant force in the athletic footwear industry with more than 62% market share and the company’s sales have risen by 8% in the first quarter of 2015. Nike is able to maintain growth in the industry even when it faces the challenge of rising raw material costs. All its competitors such as Adidas, Asics, Under Armour and Sketchers are vying for the second position, with Sketchers leading with 5% market share. Most of Nike’s gains have come at the expense of Adidas in the basketball footwear market. Innovation is at the heart of Nike, and that is why we have chosen ‘The 2015 Nike Mag’- a self -lacing shoe with light-up panels, which was......

...Robert Smith SOC 2340 September 11, 2015 E-Sports International Gaming is becoming more and more popular as new federations continue to pop up like MLG (Major League Gaming) and the International E-Sport Federation. Online competition has rapidly grown throughout the years, and continues to grow as technology grows. If e-sports have become this popular and more enjoyable to watch and play, then why are they not considered to be apart of the Olympic games? Do the Olympics fear for the future? Are they afraid that technology might take over sooner than they expected? I think that it is time the Olympic Games stop defining sports as only competitive games involving physical activity, and start letting technology and the future make history. I want to move the petition forward to make e-sports Olympic games and here is why. What do we think of when we think of sports? Fast paced activities involving lots of rigorous physical exertion, and very well practiced physical skills. I think that we sometimes look past other competitive activities solely because they do not involve physical activity. This is where e-sports come into play, and it may be hard to adapt to at first, because only the younger generation people will understand all of the new technology and games better than most older generation people. StarCraft 2, Dota 2, and League of Legends are all online competitive PC games, where millions of players online from around the world fight and compete with each other.......

...elected to host such mega event. Why should countries compete to host this event? There could be numerous reasons why a number of countries are keen on hosting World Cup, but the most compelling is the promise of an economic and social windfall. Soccer is one of the sports which people tend to identify themselves with. It has gained popularity owing to its impacts on the players, followers, states and other stakeholders. Currently, the game is estimated to have the highest number of followers than any other sport. Due to its vast effects, Soccer World Cups have gained popularity in the past two decades. For the previously held World Cups, great focus has been on social and economic effects. There numerous articles that have been written about the positive and negative effects of World Cups especially to the host countries. Before the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, it was estimated that it would improve the region’s economy by about 0.5 % per year (The Economist, 2010). South African’s economy was estimated to experience 3% annual growth hence the impact of World Cup was definitely a huge chunk. The economic impact of World Cup seems to dominate news headlines in the country and around the world. The sport has both short term and long term economic effects. It is often assumed that the host countries enjoy huge profits. Existing research and statistics on both social and economic impacts of World Cups, however, are often based on estimations made by financial and......

...Development of Football in England The idea of football came from the medieval game that was known as mob football which included two villages that would play with a pigs head. The game had no rules which meant that violence was a large part of the game and they would play until people were dying or until people were running away. Balls were not invented so the people would use a pigs head and kick that around. King Edward II was the person to ban the game as it created too much violence within the people of the country. 1581 is the earliest account of football as an organised sport. It was played between elite schools such as Eton and colleges such as Cambridge and Oxford. Sides, positions, referees were introduced. The game was played on just and average field like what farm animals would be on and they would use the gates as a goal. 1848 – Cambridge Rules This club shall be called the University Foot Ball Club. At the commencement of the play, the ball shall be kicked off from the middle of the ground: after every goal there shall be a kick-off in the same way. After a goal, the losing side shall kick off; the sides changing goals, unless a previous arrangement be made to the contrary. The ball is out when it has passed the line of the flag-posts on either side of the ground, in which case it shall be thrown in straight. The ball is behind when it has passed the goal on either side of it. When the ball is behind it shall be brought forward at the place where it......
