The only input I'm going to offer into this is that the US Teams Project has no interest in forming
or running a blanket organization for the national teams.  Whether this be financial or legal.  I
understand that a few teams have run into issues on the matter but the current stance is that those
are issues for teams to work out individually.  As it stands currently the LoCo Project and the US
Teams Project, including individual teams, should be able to do their advocacy without the need of

I appreciate your work Chris (bordy) in preparing something preemptively.  If / when the time comes
that we need something I'm sure we'll look into your expertise.  In the meantime, again, I want to
reitterate that it is not something required of any established or growing team to need funding or
liability protection.  I don't want talk like this to put off growing teams.  I don't want fledgling
teams thinking they are not able to function without something like this in place.

I appreciate everyone's hard work.  I think we are seeing fantastic success.  I am glad to be part
of this project and love to see initiative like this.  Thank you again bordy for trying to do the
responsible thing and at least put some research into the idea.
