    I'd like to email a few companies and ask for a sponsorship. I shoot very well, but I'm wondering what specifically I should include in my emails/letters? Any suggestions? I would bet they want to hear about my scores, types of archery I shoot, set up, personality... what else? Should I treat it like a job application and send a list of contacts to verify my skill and put a good word in for me?
    Thanks, Mathewsju!

    I think a picture of you shooting would be a good idea. It may not be fair, but if you look good, you probably have a better chance than someone who does not....

    You need to put together a resume and it is not just about your shooting ability. You need to include what you have done for the archery world and what you plan on doing to continue your presence in the archery community and spread archery to others. Normal it starts with a local archery shop and shooting for them and being very involved in the archery around your area. From there you need to continue building your resume. When requesting to be sponsored, you need to normally fill out thier application and attach you resume along with it.
