Jr. Bulldog Families,
This year we will hold our voting on two days in an effort to get as many people as possible an opportunity to vote. In order to vote you must be a member in good standing. Voting will take place next to the Field of Dreams concession stand on Saturday, October 24th from 1:30-3:00pm and Sunday, October 25th from 10:30am - 2:30 pm.
At our last Board Meeting held on October 21st, nominations were accepted for the Executive Board:
Vice President of Football:
Executive Secretary: Laurie Hembrey was nominated. She was unopposed and will therefore begin this position in January 2015, replacing Dawn Dabrowski.
We hope each of you take a few minutes to cast a vote on either election date to help shape the future of the organization.

We have a coach in our organization who we would like to show our support for. Coach Gonzalo Cortez, "Coach Gonzo" has coached in our program for two years and he doesn't even have a child playing in the program. He is a special individual giving back to a community that he doesn't even live in.
Coach Gonzo's daughter, Arianna Cortez was born on December 14, 2014 with 2q37 Microdeletion Syndrome. This is a very rare genetic syndrome and at this time, only approximately 100 people have been diagnosed with this world wide. On September 7, little Arianna was flown to Children's Hospital of Milwaukee. As of the most recent update, Arianna is still extremely sick and is fighting for her life.
Let's show our support to Coach Gonzo, his wife Heather and little Arianna. We will be collecting donations during all games Sunday. Coach Gonzo coaches in our organization for the love of football and is making a difference in OUR kid's lives. Let's make a difference for him, Heather and Arianna. Here is the link to the Go Fund Me page if you prefer to make a donation there http://www.gofundme.com/donatetocortezfam.

Currently there are only a few people signed up for most teams which means many of you will not get last minute alerts. Below is the total number of people signed up for alerts for each team:
