As per the F.B.A. Facebook page. Things happen, loosing one team in 4 years, not bad. F.B.A. is still doing really well in other areas.

Thanks guys! I've gotta tell ya, I'm constantly amazed at the opportunities we keep getting. From being cast on TV episodes to actually being contacted by the Orlando Magic for an opportunity to play at the Amway center, clearly God continues to show us favor.

We've had to take a very patient approach, but we've done things the right way. This can only go well for us. The video footage will be great for our guys, too. The greatest thing is for many of our players, and even our staff, I'm giving them an opportunity to play on an NBA floor that they probably would never get otherwise. Even John Weis, our Dir. of Media and Public Relations, and our chief Play by Play Commentator, mentioned that he always wanted to do play by play at a Magic game. It's a little different scenario, but still a bit of a dream come true for even him.

I couldn't be more excited and proud of what we've accomplished in 5 years, and we are just getting started. Once I get the Flight Foundation established to really push our J's for A's and Not Afraid to Fly initiatives forward, we'll REALLY being on the fast track. Tons of people are already set to adopt us as a charity. We just need the 501 C3 set first. Some of them sponsor us anyway without the tax deduction. With the 501 C3, the contributions will increase, and we'll get more people to jump in as well.

Anyway, thanks, as always, for the support.
