Hello. I hope everyone has had a nice start to the school year and are enjoying the new fall workout times. Just wanted to send out some information and reminders for the parents.
Our next fundraiser, the 100-a-thon will start soon. Check your folders the end of this week or early next week for the pledge forms Thank you Susan Montgomery and Shelley Morris for providing us with a variety of fundraising opportunities. Basically the fundraiser is finding people to sponsor the gymnast to do 100 gymnastic tricks. 100% of the money raised by the gymnast will go towards their individual booster club pledge amount.
The actual 100-a-thon and team party will be on Sunday, September 27 at 3:00, at the gym. Amelia Folkes and Gloria Perdue will be organizing the team party. A Sign-Up Genius will be posted on the Booster Club Facebook page and the website (capitalmensteam.com). Amelia will also follow up with an email reminder. We will need help with set-up, break-down, tables, meals/goodies for the potluck, etc. This will be a full meal event so we will have signup for drinks, entree, dessert, etc.
The pledge amounts from each gymnast to the Capital Men's Team Booster Club (CMTBC) have been finalized (Dollar amounts listed on Website and in your e-mail). 50% of the pledge amount needs to be paid to CMTBC by January 1, 2016. The remaining balance needs to be paid by March 1, 2016. If you still have questions on what this pledge is used for, please contact myself, Cheryl or Jeff Peterson.
Check your folders for your first monthly statement. Jeff Peterson, our Treasurer, has done a great job working with the coaches to finalize the budget for the year. Full pledge amounts or partial pledge amounts can be paid by check to CMTBC and placed in the back of the Men's Team Folder box (in the tan lock box). Any time a check is written please write the gymnast name and what the check is for (ex: Alex - pledge amount).
We also want to encourage parents to address the coaches directly with any questions or concerns they have regarding workout content, etc.

Kona Ice was at the gym today. They will also be at the gym tomorrow and Thursday from 4:30-6:30. Profits from this will go towards the men's team.
And lastly, please like our Booster Club Facebook Page and feel free to post pictures and other gymnastics related posts. We also encourage you to share virtual high fives for our team, parents, coaches etc. who are making this the best season ever. Thank you Amelia for setting this up.
