Countdown to Growler

We are less than 2 months from Growler…

and off to a good start on the St Baldrick’s website.  We have 30 teams registered and over $1600 in donations.  Go ahead and start your fundraising campaigns now.  Feel free to recruit family and friends to help you raise money.  Recruit as many as you want on your St Baldrick’s Team page.  Don’t forget about corporate match contributions.  Get registered and join a SB team today.   https://www.stbaldricks.org/events/GrowlerVolleyball2016

We’ve been working hard to secure sponsors for this year.  Our deadline isJuly 9th to release sponsor logos for the t-shirt and banner graphic designers.  So we have one month to finalize sponsorships.  The Cash sponsors you secure will count towards your team’s earnings.
We are still in search of a WINE Sponsor and can always use more Restaurants.   There is more information on the GrowlerVolleyball.com website about sponsorships.   http://growlervolleyball.com/2016-sponsors/   If you help us get our foot in the door, let Bill Speri or myself know if you have questions or help.

NEW TEAM-  Who will it be?  We have one open slot for a new team to join the Growler family.  If you’ve heard someone in the past mention that they want to enter a team, then now is their opportunity.  We will accept bids from other clubs outside the 7 we have.  The Selection process is posted on GrowlerVolleyball.com.  I’ll be out of town next weekend, so I’m postponing the Selection deadline and meeting to Tuesday June14th. 7PM SARC pavilion.  So that is just a little over One Week from now for New Teams to determine their pledge and enter their Sealed Bid.   More information >     http://growlervolleyball.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/2016-Growler-Registration-Guidelinestentative1.pdf

We will have a NEW Craft Brew Night on Week 3-  For you Homebrewers out there, you have 2 months to brew a batch to share and show off.

T-shirt- Help me decide-  I’m working with Progressive Graphics for a new creative design this year.   I think you’ll like it.  This year, we’re going for a Surfer style Beach shirt and will be going back to the 100% cotton Beefy Tee fabric.  It will be a Rad bold design and on beachy color shirts.     There are 5 shirt colors I’m considering.  Please take this pole to help me narrow the choices to 3.  Rank the 5 colors from 1 to 5 with #1 being your favorite.
