Don’t forget while enjoying tonight’s football game against Round Valley to purchase both 50-50 and Longhorn couch tickets from Friends and Neighbors (FAN) Club members. Tickets to enjoy sitting on the comfy couch are $5 each or three for $10. The winner also receives spirit supplies and a food voucher. Up to three persons can join the winner on the couch.
FAN Club member Eileen Daniels says boosters enjoy the couch because it is positioned so close to the action.
The 50-50 raffle tickets are $1 each or six for $5.
The 50-50 winner at the last home game pocketed over $450.
The FAN Club is donating all proceeds from the couch raffle to the junior class to help with next spring’s prom.
All proceeds from the 50/50 raffle will be used to purchase a scorer’s table in Wilson Dome.
FAN Club meetings are held 6:30 p.m. the second Wednesday of each month in the Pioneer Title building. New members are always welcome.
Next week will be a busy, and hopefully productive, one for the PHS soccer teams. Both teams play crucial East Region games against archrivals Blue Ridge and Snowflake.
The girls travel to Lakeside Tuesday, Oct. 14 to take on the Yellow Jackets and on Saturday, Oct. 18 host the Lobos at Rumsey Park.
On Wednesday, Oct. 15, the boys host Blue Ridge and Saturday, Oct. 18 travel to Snowflake. The results of those games will have a huge impact on the East Region standings and the resulting seeds into the state tournament, which will begin Friday, Oct. 31 at the Tempe Sports Complex.
Large supportive crowds at the home games could be just the boost the PHS players need to come away with “Ws.”
