Mid-week Update - PLAYOFFS

posted Oct 25, 2019, 11:08 AM by Parent Contact

The boys did it!  They are still alive in the playoffs!

Here is the game plan for the week:
  • Practice this week: Thursday and Friday 3pm-6pm. Saturday walk-through 9am-10am (location TBD).
  • Team Meal: There will be a team pasta feed on Friday night after practice.  Location Is Streed’s - 2011 10th Street SW.
  • Pre-game Lunch:  The boys will all be getting a bag lunch from Erberts and Gerberts provided by the Football Parent's fund for the bus ride to DL.   
  • Post-game Dinner:  Pizza will be provided on the bus on the way home - it is a long trip and the boys will be hungry.  We are asking for $5 per player to help cover this cost.  Please have your player bring their $5 to Coach Grove Thursday or Friday.  This will cover the cost  for a large pizza for every two players (1/2 each).  Water and Gatorade will also be provided both ways.

Bus will leave at 2:15pm on Saturday.

We would like to provide sweet treats for the bus ride home as well - please let me know if you would like to do this.  

Have a GREAT Week! 

GO BIG RED! 🏈

The season flew by and we are into PLAYOFFS!

  • 9th Grade plays Zimmerman at HOME tomorrow at the WMS.  CONFIRMED for 4:30pm. Don't forget your chairs.
  • Varsity will play Little Falls Tuesday at HOME at 7pm.  Bring your family, friends and neighbors and let's pack the stands!
  • Team Meal before the game on Tuesday - We need just one more family to help - let me know if you are able to do that.

I will have more info for the rest of the week as it all unfolds.

As always, the Cardinal Cruiser will be in the parking lot at 5:30pm.  Stop by and let's give the boys a HUGE welcome as they get off the bus.

Well I think it’s safe to say that Friday’s game will be one for the books as far as the weather goes!  Let’s hope for a little better weather this week.

This week is a short week:

JV/10th: Monday at Becker at 3:30pm.

·       The boys will get pizza on the way home.

9th Grade: TUESDAY at HOME against Hutch at 5pm. 

Varsity: Wednesday at HOME against Hutch at 7pm

·       Wednesday is Senior Night and we will introduce all of our Seniors and their parents prior to the game.  Parents should be there by 6:30 and we will start to introduce starting at 6:45.  Parents should line up by the north entrance of the stadium (the same entrance the players use when they come on the field after halftime).  

Wednesday Pregame Meal workers: Peterson (Kroes), Klassen, Price and Harms.

Due to the short week (and nobody signed up) there will NOT be a Parent hosted team meal this week.

Reminder about MEA Practice Schedule:

In the event that we play in the Section Quarterfinals on Tuesday, October 22nd here is the practice schedule over the MEA break.

·         Thursday:  Players-No Practice

Hello! 

It’s been a fun week celebrating the boys and getting to treat them to a few extras. 😊  The parents will also be treated to some fun after the Homecoming game!

RUFFS Bar and Grill is once again sponsoring a Parent get-together after the game this Friday!  Meet out on the Patio at 9:30pm (inside in case of rain).  They will bring Wings out at about 9:45pm.  Come out and mingle with other football parents and coaches – it’s a fun relaxing time after a busy week.

 

UPCOMING “KICK CANCER” NIGHT – October 11th

As usual the 9th graders are in charge of the Cancer Fundraiser night and this year’s theme will be KICK CANCER and will be in benefit of the Reynolds and Eilers families whose Moms are battling cancer.  They have planned a fun night of activities to raise money for our recipients.

1.       They will be selling Yard Lines before the game THIS FRIDAY AND ON OCTOBER 11TH.

Yard Line Sales: 

·         Purchase a Yard Line for $20

·         Limit 5 yard lines

·         End of each quarter winning yard line during October 11th game receives $50

·         Redeem winnings at KICK CANCER TABLE after game.

·         Don’t need to be present to win

·         Proceeds go to the Reynolds and Eilers Families

2.       They will be selling chances to Kick a Field Goal during half-time (half of proceeds to the kicker and half to the recipients).

3.       They will be selling Pom Poms to cheer on the CARDS during the game.

Be sure to stop by their table and take part in supporting these great families. 

 

See you all FRIDAY AT HODAPP!
