Agenda Item:

Game Time Events-P.Hilborn


There will be a change of date for the Alumni game 1/2/16 – due to availability of alumni being able to attend.  Possibly switch dates with the youth dance line/cheerleaders.

Score Against Cancer:

Discussion centered around how to sponsor a player: by point, by game, or flat rate donation.  Signs will be posted in the school – 2 posters. We will announce this event at the parent meeting.  Sell seat cushions that will be assigned a number.  Every time someone comes to the game, they register their seat cushion and their name will go in as many times as they have registered it for a drawing.  The money raised by the seat cushions will go towards the cancer fund.  There are 120 seat cushions to sell at approx. $2/ea.  Do All Printing gave Paul H. $100 of free printing for the cushions.


Still waiting for other programs to respond if they would like to be in the program or not – Cheerleaders, Band, & Wrestling.  We hope to add these – more value for advertisers.  We would like to add the ARAA youth teams if they have their pictures done in time.

Action Item(s):

Program: done before start of season. Events: ongoing thru season
