We are a team of people form Yorkshire england , who have foolishly decided to enter the red bull flugtag tampa bay florida on the 8th of october . Our team consists of Rach my girlfriend a midwife at Barnsley general hospital ! Matt our pilot a drawing board maker , his girlfriend a optician and mick a dealer in architectural ironmongery .
If your not sure what the red bull flugtag is is where we build a glider and do a show and throw our selves of a very chuffing high platform .( we must be mad ).
We have secured a work shop by kind donation of a retiered aviator in the lovely zh but we do not yet have any accommodation and we dont think its the right time of year to be in a tent for the preceding 3 weeks ( we land 23rd sept ) and i also dont think our relationships and friendships will see the build out if we are not in something with at least a shower lol .
We are a team genuinely trying to do well if not win this competition and are also the only team to ever have travelled so far to take part , especially with a dismantled glider with a 30 ft wing span on a Virgin flight !
So the second we land we will be a slight novelty to all the red bull hype and media with news papers and tv wanting interviews , so if anyone one here as any ideas of sponsorship if all the interview has to only consist of the mention of your bussines / hotel / you fave charity or just you ! then we'll do it .
So in short we need somewhere to stay from the 23rd to the 9th oct please can someone help .
many many thanks
