    5. Programs-
      1. Senior cover was discussed.  Members wish to use the senior calendar image done by Don Ward for the cover. Other Friday night groups will have their senior images on a senior tribute page on the inside of the program.   Or, they can be placed around the senior football players’ image if the picture size and quality of the other groups can be maintained.   Likely a tribute page would work best.

    1. All American Car Wash $500 donation was received for winning their Facebook completion for medium sized school with the strongest fan base.  Those in our category included Holiday, Hirschi, Iowa Park and Henrietta.   It was an honor to win and a welcomed donation.   We posted this information on our Booster Facebook page.

    2. Overview of Gainesville’s team, style and strategy surrounding game plan for Friday night was discussed.   
    3. Gainesville has a JV only so our Freshman/JV will play together as one team on Thursday night at home at 6pm. Effort was made to find another game for the freshman, but no one had an opening.  
      1. Lake Worth also only has a JV so this could potentially happen again next week.
    4. Tickets for Gainesville v Burk varsity game Friday will be purchased via a link that has yet to be sent by Gainesville.  As soon as it is available, it will be sent out via Sports You and social media. 
    5. With the Hirschi game cancelled on Friday, it will be played on Nov 6th.
      1. However, if there is no district ranking on the line and another game was cancelled that has higher priority, the Hirschi game could change. 
      2. Many different scenarios exist.  Will keep everyone posted on Sports You and Facebook as circumstances change.
