Head's Up...UNT Spirit Fund-Raiser On the Way

Recommended Posts

OK, I know this isn't technically "Football", but the Cheer and Dance Teams both support football in a big way at UNT, so why not the football forum????

For this year's event, we have decided to try KICKBALL as a replacement for our basketball game.  Why you ask?  Well, basketball seemed to have started to "run its course", and frankly a few folks stopped participating and a few folks started to turn our friendly game into something akin to "hack attack".  Plus, it was the general consensus that we needed to find a fun event that could broaden our base of participants...KICKBALL is it.

WE are looking at a mid-April date (April 13th comes to mind but has not been approved as yet) as the softball team is out of town and the UNT Softball complex might...might...be available to us on the 13th. Much to be "approved" in that regard, but wanted to get the conversation started about this year's event...

This will be our 9th year, and our second including the UNT Dancers, and we hope it will be our best ever!  So, as usual, we need your help in making it a success for some hard-working student-athletes., WE need:

1) Players (min age 13 and open to male and female players of course),

2) Silent Auction Donations,

3) Sponsors - This year we have available Gold sponsorships at the $500 level - 2 available, Silver Sponsorships at the $300 level - 6 available and Bronze Sponsorships at the $100 level - 12 available.'

4) Helpers for set-up, game-day management, clean-up, etc. and

5) Umpires - 3 would be great.

 

So, think about your schedule for mid-April (fingers crossed) and what you might be willing to do in support of the UNT Cheer and Dance teams.  I really do think this year's event could be our best and most fun event ever.  

 

OK, there is your head's up.  More to come as the planning develops.

It might be better to have an indoor event in April.

Thanks THOR...I just knew you would be the first to "sign-up" to play.  Hey, kickball should be quite compatible with "beverages"...just sayin'.  Ha!

I should be able to do this. 

Golf would be a good future event to do, and yes, I'd be willing to tag team the set up of such an event. 

Ever done a golf tournament before?  I have...tons and tons of work to do it correctly, and it is why I did not create this event as a golf tournament nine years ago when we started these events, but I am up for this if you want to be the main thrust in running it...no problem doing two events.  The more the merrier.  If you want to meet to discuss the idea further, just let me know.

OK, folks, forgot this small item...player registration fee remains at $35.00 per player and does include, as always, the player t-shirt.  So, if you want to play...we hope you do...let me have your t-shirt size along with your commitment.  

Player Registration Fee: $35.00 (includes player t-shirt)
