Start of season news and sponsorship opportunities
Greetings XC Families!
Hopefully summer is treating you well. With just under a month before the season begins, we have some important announcements:
In addition to the Fun Run, which in recent years has been the primary fundraiser for the team, we are looking for new ways to raise funds not covered by the district budget. The money is necessary for hotels, busses, new uniforms, “wow” t-shirts, awards, supplies, treats, and more. The district pays for some but not all of the expenses. Other BHS teams (think football, volleyball, basketball, etc..) have sponsors. This year, we are seeking sponsorship for the XC team.
If you or a business would be interested in making a tax-deductible donation to Bozeman Cross Country, please contact Mindy at 582-9189. Here are suggestions:
Platinum=$501 and up
Sponsors will be recognized on banners in Lindley Park at the Fun Run (aka Run with the Hawks), August 29th. Donations received before the first week of August will receive recognition at the Sweet Pea Race packet pickup. Like other sports, we plan to have the team picture on posters placed around town announcing our season schedule. Sponsors would receive exposure on these as well.
The official start to the season is Monday, August 17th. Plan to meet Monday through Friday August 17-21 at 8:30 a.m. @BHS Oval. Please pick up a Sports Participation Booklet from the Activities Office, schedule a doctor’s physical and turn the booklets into the office on or before August 14. We have heard that East Main Medical Clinic (587-3788) offers physicals on a walk-in basis and for a good price.
