5 Weeks . . .

Okay, only 5 weeks from today!  I received the promo books, so if anyone wants to do some recruiting and fundraising in advance, I can give up a couple for you to use.  Just let me know.

This week has been super hot and humid, I hope this is the worst we will see this summer and Ralley day will once again be beautiful.  So far our luck has been good and we have had blue skies, fluffy white clouds and reasonable temps.

Now for The List item, I am sharing a bonus item that is making an encore appearance.  Last year it was also a bonus item, but only 1 team, Esther’s Angels, really took advantage of it.  Below is a picture from last year and the item is . . .

  • A picture of your ENTIRE team with an animal spelled out in letters.


Here they are holding ‘Fish’ Fry.  What we didn’t realize at the time was they should have gotten double points for this picture.  In the background is ‘Turkey’ Hill.  If you look around, you will be surprised by how many examples of this you can find.

Happy hunting!


I thought I would try to do a weekly entry up until the Ralley.  Keep in mind, I did say *try*, lol.

The planning is going well.  The t shirts should be here the beginning of August.  I will be handing them out at the Ralley, but if you want them in advance to wash, we can work something out. 

In order to guarantee that you get the sizes you need, you need to register by August 7, at the latest.  After that the printer can’t promise us to get them in time for the Ralley.  Sizes available are adult only, Small to 4XL.

Here is another list item for you to plan for.

  • A picture of your ENTIRE team in the bleachers or seats of a football (or any sports) field.

I hope you are keeping track of all these things, they are definitely going to be on the list.  But there will be a little more to most of them, of course!

Happy days!
