I WAS able to get ahold of both Valken and KEE with no trouble ( funny I did that before I even brought it here to the nation )
Will , from Valken, and Nina, from KEE, were both very helpfull and insightfull.
Will , the Valken Rep , got back to me almost immediatley. He even forwarded me the team sponsorship information and application. Thanks Will !
Nina, from KEE referred me to the Empire package deal or to my local KEE distributor ( which knew nothing about it except for the same Empire package ).
Please remember that there are hundreds of teams, stores, and tournements that are contacting these people on an every day basis. ALL of them are looking for a discount or sponsorship.
I suggest if you are from a team you draft a decent letter ( or email ) that explains who you represent, what your questions are , and how they can help you.
BOTH are offering team packages. Valken through Will and your local store and KEE through a deal with Empire.
I cannot give the prices I was quoted ( not right to kiss and tell ) , but I will tell you that either deal could potentailly save OUR team a great deal of money !
