AZAFL Tournament

It's a new year, and it's almost time for the inaugural AZAFL Metro Footy
Tournament (FEBRUARY 8th-10th). In order to plan all the events properly,
we need to know which clubs are planning on attending. We need to know
approximate how many people each club is bringing by FRIDAY, January 11th
if
not sooner.

We have also struck a deal with the airport Hilton, so let us know if you
plan on staying there or if you'll be making other arrangements.

501c3 Approval

Happy holidays, all --

I'm very pleased to announce that the USAFL has obtained a favorable ruling form the IRS concerning 501c3 status...that is, we got it!

As an aside to everyone, while I'm thoroughly pleased that the IRS found in our favor (and not so surprised, either), I am shocked it came so quickly to a favorable ending. My experience in Boston attempting to obtain a favorable ruling was both far longer and less positive.

Missing San Diego Banner

G'day Mates!

I just thought I'd drop a line to let you know I'm doing just fine.
I hear there's been a bit of a fuss about my whereabouts!
Not to worry, I just decided to take a bit of a holiday after the grueling
2001 SD Lions campaign to the National Championship.
As you can see from the photo, I'm in bonny England right now, seeing a few
of the sights.

There's a few other places I'd like to visit before I come home to sunny
San
Diego, but rest assured mates, I'll be there to start the defense of our
title with you!

2001 USAFL President's Speech

With the recent events in the US, many people are taking pause for reflection and to appreciate what amazing times we live, both good and bad.
