New Business

Checkbook Balance

$4684.30. So far, there has been $50 in payouts for the calendar fundraiser.

Banquet

Wendy brought up the idea of changing the date for the football banquet due to it being so close to Christmas. She suggested the weekend before Thanksgiving, which would be November 22. It was realized that it would conflict with the bear station. It was decided that we would leave it where it is, which is December 13, 2015.

Theme Nights

An idea was brought up for theme nights for home games. It would help with team/school spirit. A veteran’s appreciation theme could be one night. It was decided that we would continue to look into the idea. Possibly check with cheerleading, the Wellsboro Hornets Sports Booster Club, and/or Student Council to help support the themes.

Spring Fundraisers

We discussed possible fundraisers for the spring. We are looking into doing a sub sale on February 12th, March 12th, April 23rd, and May 21st. We would need volunteers to help make up the bags for the sale before the Gridders meetings. An email will be sent with more details as we have them.

Other ideas were discussed and more information will follow as details are figured out.

Team Meeting

Head Coach Matt Hildebrand is planning a team meeting for the current 9th, 10th, and 11th grade players by the end of January. A parent meeting is being planned for the first week in February. Eighth grade parents will be invited to the parent meeting. We are also looking into a possible team building activity this spring.

Next Meeting

February 11, 2015 at 6:30 p.m at the Wellsboro Community Center.

As always we welcome your ideas, talents and any help you can provide. Feel free to stop by a meeting or email anytime!
