To All Team America members and prospective members who plan on attending the WOMAA World Martial
Games XVI, July 22,23,24,2016 in Essenbach, Germany.
Travel to Europe has gotten more expensive due to higher airfares. So we are advising everyone to start
budgeting early, seek sponsor, due fundraisers, etc. .
1: (9 day trip) Depart U.S. on Tues. July 18th, arrive on Tues. July 19th, 2016, Tour on Wed. , Free day on
Thursday (some will be going to venue to help set up) , Fri, Sat, Sun. ( WOMAA Games). Monday July 25th,
Depart Germany on Monday July 25th, by bus to Salzburg, Austria. On Tuesday, we will have a day tour of
Castles, Shopping, etc. in Austria. On Wed. River Cruise, and dinner at the Bishops Fortress. On Thursday,
July 28th, Free day to visit Salzburg. We will depart Early from Salzburg back to Munich for our flight back to the
U.S. arriving back in New York that evening, the same day.
We are advising everyone to budget their travel expenses high, approx. $2800 per person. This should be more
than enough to cover the expenses for travel. Of course we are always looking for ways to cut the expenses as
we have done in the past, and will continue to do this and work toward the final cost coming in well below the
Team America Packets are available NOW. Travel Cost package should be ready shortly.
To All Team America Members: Please remember that a Single person traveling (staying in a single
room) is always going to pay more. We always try and room a single up with someone else (same
gender of course) to save money. As soon as possible, please send me info on your room
requirements. ie: 2 twin beds, a double bed, a family room (2 adults 1-2 kids) , Single room (if you
prefer not to room with anyone else). By getting me this info as early as possible, it will give me the
opportunity to try and get the best possible rooming set up and maybe even save some money for
you. Please remember to follow all deadlines on page two of the Team Packet.
NOTE: For airlines you are allowed 1 Free check through and 2 carry ons per person. At present we
are leaving out of Philadelphia arriving in Manchester England, taking our coach bus to Cardiff. Since
we take everything to run the event over on the plane with us (usually in 15 carry on bags and a
couple of boxes), we ask everyone traveling with us, whoever only has one carry on, that you take
one of ours (which gives you two). and if you have a group (ie: 4 people and only taking 3 check
throughs) that you take one of ours to help get everything to the tournament. It is mostly paperwork,
awards, etc. Everything to run the tournament. We do this every year, and it has worked out really
well. I thank you in advance for all your help, and look forward to meeting you at the airport before we
check in for our trip. Since we check in as a GROUP, It is mandatory, that everyone who is traveling
as part of the group, meets with Mr. Smith and Mr Van Clief, before we check in and get our boarding
passes, etc. We will have a short meeting and pass out the carry on bags, etc.
Thank you for all your help and for joining Team America and representing the United States, as we
go for the Gold in Cardiff, Wales.
