I was under the impression that we had already agreed to allocate the $300.  If so, great, if not, we should do it.

Board members -
Please take a look at this request to match the Cheer Team's $300.    I don't recollect if we approved this money in our budget, but would appreciate it if we all sounded out about it now.    The Cheer team will be there tomorrow at the Scrimmages.   Thanks to everyone who is helping in the many ways we're doing this.   It looks to be a fun event.

Hi Lisa.  We'll wait to hear back from Dan on the trucks, etc.  We need a firm commitment from you guys on the money for homecoming decorations.  I still never heard from you what was decided by Backers.  Can you match our $300?  If we don't have a firm amount, we can't schedule these flatbeds because we can't afford to do the decorating.  We are providing the poster paint, glitter, etc. for the poster party!  PLease let me know soon what amount we can count on.

Thank you for thinking about this, and planning for the trucks.    
This sounds like a good plan.    I just hope it isn't pouring down rain like last year (but that is highly unlikely with the early Homecoming date).   I worry just a bit about safety of these guys when it comes to these flatbeds with no rails.... is there anything to hang onto?  I just don't want anyone falling off a truck.   Any ideas?
And, I'm iffy on whether to bother with getting the Freshman out from their 3 different schools.   I know the high school gets a 1/2 day, but the Jr. Highs don't.    It's definitely the coaches' call.     I know my freshman son will be upset, but he'll get over it.   Maybe it could somehow be tied to an incentive of how many points they score (or prevent) between now and homecoming?  
 I think we've already got decoration costs, and poster board allocated for this.    You're supplying the paint and glitter for poster-making?
Have you heard anything about the possibility of a dance?

Hi Dan and the Backers,.
    So a cheer family has tentatively secured a "Double" Semi flatbed for the homecoming Parade.  This includes a driver.  What they would do (if you are on board), is bring the flatbeds into the field area in the morning so that we could get it decorated for the parade.  We would put fringe all around the bottoms, posters all around (to be used in the stadium that afternoon), balloons, pom-poms, etc. etc.  We could put all of Varsity football and cheer on one bed, and Junior Varsity Football and Cheer on the other...around the sides, on a couple of hay bales, and standing).  I'm not sure if they can all fit but I think so.  We have one other family that offered an 8' X 12' flatbed separately.  Do we want that for Frosh?  That isn't very big.  I definitely want your buy in before finalizing these... and we'll need some money for decorations.  What are your thoughts?  Please let me know.  The banner is all set up, hooks in, etc.  It will be up for tomorrow night and it is beautiful.  :)  Marci Bernard
