Booster News, August 2011
Dear Booster Friends,

It's been a busy summer for the Churchill Booster Club and we're happy to update you on our progress and growing organization
. This issue of Booster News has important information on Fall Sports Try-Outs, the Fall Sports Night meeting, Booster Club Membership, our new Online Spiritwear Store, Season Sport Passes and much more.

Our combined support of WCHS student-athletes and Bulldog sports is more important than ever as athletic programs across the MCPS system face continued cuts to their budgets. What can you do? Fill out a Booster Club membership form, support our fundraisers, volunteer to help us help our athletes, "Like" us on Facebook, and read our e-newsletters to stay in-the-know about everything Boosters. I look forward to meeting many of you and working with this dynamic group of Boosters during the upcoming 2011-2012 school year.

3. Bulldog Golf Classic A Huge Success!

More than 80 golfers joined us on August 10th—a picture-perfect day on the links— for our 8th Annual Bulldog Golf Classic. The event—traditionally our largest singlebulldog golfball small 8 annual fundraiser, was an overwhelming success, bringing in over $24,000. The Booster Club wishes to thank the entire planning committee, all of our golfers, sponsors, Booster donors, coaches and the many volunteers who staffed the event. 

A special thank you to Mark Green, the Booster Club's immediate past-president. Mark graciously agreed to stay onboard and oversee this event and his dedication to this Golf Classic was again critical to its success. The Winston Churchill Booster Club applauds Mark for his hours of planning and work on this tournament, along with his dedication to and guidance of the Booster Club for the past two years. Thank you Mark!

7. Bulldog Concessions

Bulldog image black and whiteLooking for a way to make a huge impact on WCHS Booster Club fundraising efforts? PLEASE consider taking on the role of Concession Stand Coordinator for the 2011-2012 school year! Better yet, ask a friend to work with you so you can coordinate the Beloved Beast together.

Yes, we know it's a big commitment, but the concession stand also provides much-needed funding to the Churchill Booster Club's annual fundraising budget... and there's no more direct way than concessions to support our WCHS student-athletes. Send us an e-mail so we can begin a Bulldog Brainstorm session—with you and your cohort—about this VERY important role! Please contact us at our new email address:

8. Digital Sign Buy-A-Tile Opportunities
