Titan's Field Update

Titan's Football Field Lights
First, and most important- we owe a huge Thank You to the Burbank Park District! The Board & staff have been a tremendous help. One person above all that has been instrumental in making a great place for these kids to play football & to cheer is Park District Director- Bill Olsen!  
 
 (Underlined sentences indicate new & updated information.)
  On Wednesday, April 12th, 2006 - Bill Olsen presented the Park District Board with a request for bid approval for the Titans stands. It was approved unanimously. The stands seat approximately 280 people. There is an announcer's booth with fencing around the roof for a film deck. The Park District Board approved a purchase for shutter doors over the booth windows at a cost of approx. $4,500.00. The shutter doors were installed on Monday, November 20th, 2006. There are plans for a storage area to be built under the stands. There are also 2 sets of mini-bleachers on the visitor's side as well. They seat approximately 50 people each. Two New Y-shaped goal posts have been installed. 
  The football field proposal to install an irrigation system was approved by the Burbank Park District Board on July 12th, 2006 & is up & running since mid-October. The practice field has already been fertilized once & is being placed on a schedule to recondition & maintain it. 
The Burbank Park District Board also approved the purchase of a field striper that Bill Olsen has shared with the Titans for the 2006 season!
In cooperation with the Park District, we are working to improve the parking by the practice & game fields. At the October 2006 Park District meeting they approved a plan to expand the parking lot by 39 spots for a cost of approx. $60,000.00. The Parking lot expansion project was completed in May 2007.The practice field was thatched several weeks ago. Brand new goal posts were installed onto the practice field in May 2007. Also in May 2007 - The Titan's Game Field received a 2 inch lift by applying 6 tons of top soil & 500 lbs. of grass (Bluegrass). The Park District also installed a new flag pole on the North end of the Titan's Field.
  All of this is great stuff! When you have the opportunity-make sure you thank Bill Olsen & the Burbank Park District Board for all of their support! Please let them know how much we appreciate all the time & money they are putting into our kids! You can contact them by going to the Titan's community links page.

  Stay tuned for more updates!

Thursday, April 14
Hello Everyone, My name is Daileen Bucki. For those who do not know me, I have been involved in Titan organization for just about 6 years now. My husband Mark Bucki has been the head coach for fall football for 7 years & arena football for 2. He is also an active Board Member. Most home games you can find me working by the grill with my brother-in-law (co-concession board member) Bryan & my sister Cathy, unless I am watching our boys on the field.  I have committed to participating in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in Chicago June 4th & 5th. Seven years ago my Mom received that dreaded phone call that she had breast cancer. I can't imagine how she felt receiving news that her sister had received years before. My Mom & my Aunt are SURVIVORS & they are both as strong as ever. I am walking for my Mom, my aunts, my cousins, nieces, and friends. I am walking for all of us. We all know someone that Breast Cancer has affected somehow. I have done a couple of smaller walks in the last year & for the last few years I have wanted to do the Avon Walk & always had prior commitments. Well this year I AM DOING IT!   It is a big commitment, one that will require me to spend the next several weeks training and fundraising. But breast cancer is a big disease, one that still affects far too many people, and I am determined to do everything I can to help put an end to it. The money I raise will be managed and disbursed by the Avon Foundation Breast Cancer Crusade to help provide access to care for those that most need it, fund educational programs, and accelerate research into new treatments and potential cures. I will be just one of thousands of people that will walk 39.3 miles (equivalent of a marathon and a ½) over a weekend, raising awareness of the cause and educating even more people.

I cannot do it without your help. Though I am required to raise at least $1,800 in donation, I plan to raise much more!

I hope that I can count on the support of our TITAN FAMILY! You can make a donation to my fundraising campaign right here now by clicking on the heading above. As I prepare for this exciting event, I plan to update my page frequently so that all my supporters can follow my progress, so please visit often. While you're here, you might want to spend some time on the site to find out more information on why this event is so important, and the organizations and people that will be helped by the money we all raise.

I cannot thank you enough. Your generosity & support will help make a difference in the fight against breast cancer. Please join me & be in it to end it! Strength & Courage Daileen Bucki
