I got lucky with my employer and they agreed to sponsor us. It wasn't a great deal of money...but every little bit helps. It helps if there is a common thread between you and your intended target
. It just so happened that my boss is from Iowa and has an Iowa pig roaster on a trailer in his back yard (so he says). My partner and I plan on doin' some que for my company as well as possibly for his sailing club. I can dig this q'in for money thing!
