Wrestling booster meeting August 30, 2016 Thanks to all that came, we had a good turnout and appreciate the parent involvement, but could always use more. Social Committee It was suggested that we form a social committee to organize potlucks, BBQs and get togethers to help build our wrestling family and help parents get to know each other. Rochelle Skelton and Melissa Lyons volunteered to be on the committee - other volunteers are needed. The first social is a BBQ to be hosted by the Skelton’s. Jerry Potter offered to host a spaghetti feed at a date to be determined. Parent T-shirts Jason Kemper suggested we design a parent T-shirt that can be worn to duals and tournament. Spirit Packs Order forms will be handed out and emailed. The boosters plan to order 5 extras for late comers All Freshman and Juniors need physicals before they can start practice. Team Building Some ideas were to sit together at football games, parent/wrestler paintball and the Gowen field exercise we did last year. Fundraising Go fund me page Programs to be sold at the duals - Jason will manage the programs and find the businesses to advertise.  He has access to a printer for free. Jason Kemper suggested that all the fundraising stay with the parents/boosters and very little be required of the wrestlers. He has offered to take the lead in all fundraising. Items need to be found and donated for raffles. Tournaments/Practices Practices start Nov. 15 - weight certification will be prior to practice starting.  Every wrestler needs to be sufficiently hydrated in the days leading up to and the day of certification. Open mats will continue every Tues. and Thurs. at 3:30 until formal practice starts. There will be practice all of Christmas Break. Coach has a tentative schedule for duals and tournaments t hat we will post on the Facebook page as soon as we get it. This year we will look into carpooling for in town duals - bussing will be too expensive. Singlets Singlet mock-ups will be designed and emailed to the wrestlers for a vote.
