TDYF Update!



 Hello Football Fans~

Hope you all had a great first weekend of football! Some teams handed out tickets to sell for our annual fundraiser the 21st Annual BURGER & BALL BASH scheduled for Friday, September 13th 5-6:45pm at Sid White Field, Wahtonka Campus. This is a fundraiser for TDYF with Friends of Football (TDWHS Football Booster Club). Please help us: PRE-Sell TICKETS ($10/individual; $40/family---includes game admission plus Burger/Fixin's/Chips/Beverage and Dessert). TDYF players are scheduled to scrimmage at Half-Time. There are a lot of tickets out to be sold, so it will be easier to sell your tickets sooner than later.

1. Each TDYF Family assigned 2 of Each Ticket (2-Individual & 2 Family) to sell BEFORE September 6th. Buy-out is $100.

2. Money from selling Tickets to be turned in (in your labeled plastic baggie) to a Board Member on or before Friday, September 6th. If you are able to sell more tickets, please seek out Didi or Traci for additional tickets.

3. DESSERTS provided by TDYF: Each player's family to bring 2 dozen dessert pieces (cookies, brownies, etc.). Desserts should be something that does not require plasticware to eat. Deliver to TDW Sid White Field, Wahtonka Campus, between 3pm & 4pm, Friday, September 13th.

4. We need help with different Committees for the Burger Ball Bash. The last two years we have fed 850+ people at the event. SignUps will begin this week at practices -OR- please contact Didi at 541-340-6610 or Traci at 541-993-1964 if you can assist during the event. SignUp early to get the job/time slot you wish.

HINTS FOR WHITE PANTS AND PRACTICE JERSEY: We hope to offer a few helpful hints for those dirty, muddy, grass stained football pants and practice jerseys. A good soaking! Soaking for an hour (or ten) in Biz, OxyClean, Simple Green or Resolve will help tremendously. Scrubbing! A firm bristle brush and a little elbow grease to those knees, hip pads, grass stains and elastic cuffs will work the dirt from the synthetic fibers. Detergent & Bleach! Put a dab of your laundry soap on the stains that don't scrub out and wash them with a bit of bleach and Viola! Clean Bright White Pants! Try not to dry them. Drying will set the stain and take away any hope of fighting stains further. We thank you for your extra efforts.
