This year five students will be competing and an additional student will attend to assist with equipment, etc. Matt moved to donate $350 to rifle club to use toward their trip to nationals; Stacy seconded the motion. All in favor.
TEAM POSTERS: Kathryn Northcott presented examples of team posters which included the team’s schedule. She explained that IW students have asked her about the posters as they have seen the posters that she has done for Watseka. She offered that the posters could be done as a fundraiser through the booster club. Watseka requires a $75 sponsorship and that covers the sports within that season. Most of the examples had 5-7 sponsors on each poster. A football poster would need to be done by early August. Boosters also asked about senior gift pictures and 3’ x 4’ banners of senior athletes. Boosters discussed individual families funding some of the items vs. booster club funding. Boosters will consider these ideas and have further discussions.
SENIOR GIFTS: Boosters will consider information provided by Kathryn Northcott. No update from Hanns.
APPAREL: Update given on apparel, included the following: polos will be red with white sides and feather logo; gray t-shirt will be ordered; tie-dye shirts will be ordered; sweatpants selected; V-neck pull-over will be red and blue with words and feather logo; ladies’ bling shirt will be white; Mohawk hats have been selected.
3 PT CLUB FLYERS/SPORTS PROGRAM ADS: Baseball and softball will do the sales since football cannot.
BATTING CAGES: Consideration was given for batting cages to be donated one to the high school and one to the middle school. Suggestion had been discussed with Mr. Meyer and he responded favorably about that suggestion. Suggestion was given to completely fund it so that it can be kept at the school vs. the parks. Boosters may consider asking Incobrasa or Gibson Hospital to fund part of it. Consensus agreed to fund it so that it can be kept at the school.
FOOTBALL SPRINKLER SYSTEM: No information was submitted from the school regarding the sprinkler system.
