Weekly President’s Message

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

It’s Paul Glintenkamp, President of the Farragut High School Football Booster Club.

Last week we had our recent Booster Club meeting and the attendance was good and participation even better.  I’m excited for the program as we start to head into spring.  Here are some recent updates and topics of interest to all of us:

Sponsorship renewals & recruitment of new sponsors is underway.  We have about 10 people on the committee and they are starting to reach out to new target sponsors to sign them up for the 2013 season.  It is not too late to join the committee so please contact me if you’d like to help us in this most important activity.

The April 12th luncheon for “target sponsors” at Calhoun’s on Kingston Pike has been scheduled.  We had previously planned for a “Sponsor’s Luncheon” for March 22, but we will be postponing the event in order to get more participation. Currently, I’ve heard from some target sponsors but not enough to hold the date.  April looks to be a much better plan.

Spring Clean Up Day is approaching. Saturday April 20th is the day and we will expect all parents to participate and help to get this task down in order to get the field and facilities ready for Spring Football.  The spring practices will start in early May so we need to have our part done in advance.

Season tickets if a great opportunity to make additional money for the club!  Remember that 100% of all $$ collected for season tickets goes to the Booster Club.  We will arrange for sales of tickets on the website very soon and encourage all parents, friends, former players and those connected to The FHS Football program to purchase their tickets asap in order to improve our financials for the season.  All tickets will be held in “will-call” status and available shortly before the season.

We will hold a Sponsorship Committee meeting this Wednesday in The Commons at 6:00pm.  At this meeting we will decide on a path forward for the luncheon and also assign specific target sponsors and sponsorship renewal assignments, so please attend.

Our big project targets for this year are (1) the video scoreboard and (2) the Team Room.  Let’s do all we can to get both of these important improvements for our team and program to move us forward!

Thank you,

Paul Glintenkamp
