Australia or Bust!
Nov. 20, 2003
From January 6-16, 2003, the Cal Women's Swimming team hopes to train with Australian Olympic Champion, Ian Thorpe, who is considered among the world's greatest swimmers. The team has been invited to make its way Down Under and spend ten days outside of Sydney learning and training with Thorpe, his coach and teammates. This is a great opportunity for Cal Women's Swimming to build on its already stellar program.
How are the Bears going to fund their trip? That's where our fans and program supporters come in!
Cal Women's Swimming is hosting an online auction beginning Tuesday, December 16 to raise funds. On the block will be exclusive aquatics items that are not available for purchase anywhere else! A complete list of auction items is available below.
Unlike traditional online auctions, the bidding for this particular auction will be facilitated entirely via email over a three-day period. Beginning December 16, fans may start the bidding by e-mailing their bids to firstname.lastname@example.org, between the hours of 8:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. In your e-mail, please include the item number, bid amount, and a daytime phone number where you can be reached. With each bid, you will receive a confirmation e-mail and will be notified if and when your bid is raised. At that point, you will be informed of the new bid amount, and will have the opportunity to counter. Please keep all bidding to the designated hours of 8:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.
The bidding will close at 12:00 Noon on Thursday, December 18, and all winners will be notified by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, December 19.
We look forward to your participation in the Cal Women's Swimming online auction, and thank you for helping to fund this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for these young women. We appreciate your support. GO BEARS!
