Message from Coach Dan

For Defensive Players,

Although there was some talk about having a defensive only practice this Thursday evening because of the free night, I feel that it will likely be in our best interest to have the week off as a team, rather than half a team. However, that doesn't mean that our responsibilities end for the week. First and foremost, use this Thursday to organize yourselves for the Bud, Spud and Steak (as I'm sure you've all read the post regarding this, I won't elaborate). This will also be a good week for you to attend to any arrangements you have to make regarding the upcoming equipment draw. If you have a program to speak with, now is one of your last opportunities to do so. If on Thursday you have nothing to do because you've already dealt with everything, then I would ask that you use your free time to read through the playbook and think about your responsibilities in the various situations. Some strategies:

- Write down questions or anything you're not sure about
- Close your eyes and visualize what it will look like around you
- Write out what your job is in each front (O/S, 50, 44) or situation (22, 31, 32)
- Close the playbook and draw out the defense (the defensive front for d-line, the coverage for db's, both for linebackers)

Each of these strategies will help you to understand what your job is, though some will be more effective than others for each of you. Now that we are about to head outside, it is increasingly important that we understand the system and each of our jobs within it. Have a good week, I'll see you Saturday.

    Last chance for tickets and Prizes drop offs.

    This Thursday night we will be at Miranda's house, 6 Rillwillow Place, for you to drop off any outstanding money or tickets that you can't sell in order to minimize the collections being done the night of. (Anytime after 6PM)

    At this time you can also pick up more tickets if needed. As well, to all of you who have not dropped of a Prize for the auction….. You need to drop off your prize that night.

    We need to know what we have in order to put together the prize packages! If you are NOT ABLE to get a prize you will be required to pay $20 so we can purchase a prize to add to the auction (as discussed). This $20 will also be collected on Thurs.

    Please show up at Miranda's if you have anything to clear up as it is difficult to deal with this all the night of the event. This is a team event, it is ALL of our responsibilities to ensure it's success. If you have any question or concerns, please call me, LISA (Zueff) at home 339-3505 or at work 957-2500 ext 2572.

    Please see the Below List for Times based on the original request for volunteers to work the night of the Event. Please e-mail me lisapookybaby@gmail.com if you can help out as I need to slot at least 4 more people that night. If we have more volunteers that means less time at each job!!!
