PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

Hello Heartland Of Raider Nation, I hope and pray everyone is well. Many “experts” have given our free agent signings an A grade, most “experts” have given our Draft an A- grade, one “expert” boldly said the Raiders will win 10 games and compete for the division title. The 2019 schedule has been released and the first Raiders voluntary camp was held. Raiders 2019 is underway and our Raiders, our coach and our General Manager, are ready to get back to some “Unfinished Business”. Heartland Of Raider Nation Are You Ready?!?!?! SEE YOU AT THE MEETING!!! GO RAIDERS!!! ELISEO

SAVE THE DATE/S

Our annual Booster Club Kickoff BBQ will be held on Saturday July 27th at Plaza Park. If needed, to help us get a guest, we have left open the dates of July 13th or 20th. More information to come in future newsletters and meetings. SAVE THE DATE/S…….

 

2019/20 MEMBERSHIP DRIVE

We will begin to accept signups for our Booster Clubs 2019/20 club year at our BWW meeting and at our June 13th meeting. ATTENTION, due to the decline in membership the past few years, we can no longer order shirts in bulk amounts. I have always wanted to make sure we had enough shirts and sizes for everyone who signed up at our July membership kickoff meeting. Unfortunately, we can no longer do that as we end up with a large amount of shirts. Everyone who signs up for membership at our May or June meetings will be guaranteed to have a shirt, even if you do not make the July meeting, we will save your shirts. All others who wait to sign up at our July meeting, shirts will be limited, if your size/sizes are not available, they will be order and available at the next meeting. We apologize for the inconvenience, but this needs to be done to help keep costs down for our club. Thank you for your support!!!
