Varsity Game - Home Opener Friday, Aug 31

Our Blue Hawk Football Varsity games are where we get to meet up with all our Booster families...the freshmen families are running concessions, the sophomore, junior, and senior families are taking care of a variety of tasks and, of course, cheering on our team.  We can hardly wait to gather with both new and old friends!!  Tomorrow,  be sure to pick up your 2013 Football Program at the 50/50 table which is placed just inside the front gate. 


We have a new addition to the raffles we run in the stands this year.  One of our sponsors, Shell Oil, has donated $50 gift cards for us to raffle at each game.  We will raffle off one card per game @ $5.00/per chance.  Look for our volunteers in the stands who will be selling chances to both a 50/50 raffle and the $50 gas card.


Varsity parents (sophomore, juniors, and seniors): Traditionally, for Friday night home games, the Football Boosters feed your player - but that is because he goes directly from his school day to reporting for his pre-game meetings.  Tomorrow, your player will not be fed by the Football Boosters since it is a school holiday.  It is expected your player will get the nourishment he needs while at home.  Please be sure to remind him to hydrate properly and get the pregame nourishment he needs before reporting to the locker room.


JV Game Change for Sat., Sept. 1

Just making sure you heard from your player or read above that there is no JV game at Dover on Saturday.  Instead, you can plan that your player will be told to report 9:30-11:30 for either practice or a scrimmage @ EHS.


Thank Yous

Every week we are overwhelmed and grateful for the Football Booster parents who step up, take on a chore, help lighten the load, and make it fun to be part of this organization...this past week was no different.   You know who you are and deserve a pat on the back.  Thank, thank, thank you from the rest of us who benefited because of what you did!!!! 


Next Booster Mtg: Tuesday, Sept. 4 EHS Cafe 7:00pm

We sincerely hope you can join us next week in our continued planning of the 2013 football season for our players.  The meeting runs from 7-8:00pm ...with a promise of ending on time.

Boosters Update--Aug 16

Dear Blue Hawk Football Players, Families, and Fans,


What a super day for our first Varsity scrimmage of 2012 AND the annual Hot Dog Cookout.  Thank you to all volunteers for the helpful hands; thank you to all hungry team members and spectators.  No one could believe that 500 hot dogs could disappear so quickly!



Please read this carefully as Coach Taylor provided us with a lot of updates this morning for our Freshmen families.

·        There will be no morning Freshmen practice session on Friday, Aug. 17...INSTEAD players are to report for practice from 2-4pm.  This change in the Freshmen practice schedule is because of the Blue Hawk Card Blitz taking place tomorrow starting immediately after afternoon practice.  Read below for more Blue Hawk Card Blitz information.

·        Freshman Schedule for August 18 -Thursday, August 23:

ü  Saturday, August 18:  Practice 7:30-9:30 am

ü  Monday, August 20:  Frosh scrimmage Monday 10:15am @ home  Coach will tell your player when to report to the locker room.  Remind him to listen carefully for those instructions.

ü  Tuesday, August 21:   Regular practice 9:15am-11:15am

ü  Wednesday, August 22:  Practice 3-5pm since EHS Freshman Orientation takes place in the morning.

ü  Thursday, August 23: Freshman Jamboree at Gill Stadium in Manchester, NH  - 6:30pm start.  Coach Taylor will inform your player when he must report for the bus.  Address for directions can be found at the end of this newsletter.

·        We have posted the concession stand volunteer schedule on the inside door of the concession stand.  Remember, the concession stand is run by Freshman families and every family is asked to work at least one home game in the concession stand.  You will appreciate this tradition when next year, your Sophomore player is a Varsity player and you are able to give him your full attention while sitting in the bleachers.   There are many empty slots that need to be filled in.  Thank you for getting yourself scheduled and letting the Varsity parents watch their player.


Blue Hawk Card Blitz Reminder/Information

Our Blue Hawk football players (all grades) are participating in a "blitz" tomorrow evening in their final attempt to sell cards - and hopefully break last year's all time sales record!  The Blitz begins immediately after the afternoon practice session.  The Football Boosters will provide pizza and cold drinks for all players before they go out blitzing.  The players will be told to report back to the high school at 7:00pm.


It's very important that tomorrow every player bring in all their cards and money from sales to date that has not been turned in.  Football Boosters will be on hand for the start of both morning and afternoon sessions.  Your player must check in at that time and reconcile with them his sales to date.  Again, at 7:00pm when the players report at the end of the Blitz, your player must check in one last time and turn in all his sales money and/or cards from the Blitz.  For planning purposes for your player, you can expect he'll be reconciled and ready to leave around 7:30-7:45pm tomorrow. 


We had several Freshmen parents  and a couple of Sophomore parents sign up to help drive for Blitz.  Drivers should have their player thinking about and having a plan of who he is riding with; Football Boosters do not assign cars.  We could use a couple more drivers!  If you are available, please let Kate Adler know at  This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it

Aug. 18th.  We thank you for considering this!
