Charger Parents Booster Club

Hillsdale vs. Grand Valley (home)
Saturday, October 8, 2005
Game time: 7:00 PM

Dear Charger Fans!

Get excited! Another big game this week! Tailgating will begin at 4:30 PM in the grass parking lot west of the athletic complex. Parking is $5.00. Bring your main dish, beverages, eating utensils and a small dish to pass. We will have 2 grills going so bring something to BBQ and throw it on with ours! Chairs and a small table are a good idea, if you have room in your vehicle. We will finally have some football weather on Saturday so we can all wear our new Charger gear! Everyone is welcome, please come by and tailgate with us. It's a great way to make new friends and build team spirit. Our parent tailgate group is the best in the league, hands down!

Apparel orders: Clothing should be in for this game, I am supposed to receive it by Friday. After it is sorted, checked and bagged, I will send out an email that lists whose order is in by jersey number. Check your email Saturday morning to see if your order is in.
Please pick up your order at the tailgate between 4:30 & 6:30 PM. I do not bring orders into the stadium with me.

Mini Rosters: I will have 40 mini rosters available at the tailgate. These are laminated mini rosters that have all the players listed in numerical order with their parent names right next to them. They hang on a lanyard around your neck so you can keep up with each player during the game. Sort of like a permanent cheat sheet. This is a must have item at just $2.00 each. See Sandy Balone at the tailgate. All proceeds go to the football team.

Rear Window Decals: See Nancy Rumsey at the tailgate for your Charger Football rear window sticker. Show your Charger pride on your vehicle for just $5.00. Decals are cash & carry with all proceeds to the football team.

Team pictures: Most of the team and individual pictures are in. There will be a table set up on stadium walk on the right hand side before the ticket booth at 6:00 PM. Please stop by on the way into the stadium to pick up your pictures. Every player's family receives one team picture and individual player picture. Thank you to the Hillsdale Chargers Football staff.

Tickets: Each person must show ID to claim your tickets at the ticket will call. Please make sure you have your ID with you. This is a conference rule that is new this year.

Post game reception: There will be a post game reception at the Roxy Theatre. The Roxy is located at 110 N. Broad in downtown Hillsdale. Stop by for pizza and soft drinks courtesy of the Hillsdale College Alumni Assn. and the Gridiron Club. Stop by and check it out!

Websites: Here is a website worth checking out. Carly Crowley, sister of Chet Crowley #65 has taken some great action shots at our away games. She's busy keeping stats at home games but on the road she is pretty good with the camera. Carly works for Hillsdale's Athletic Dept. as asst. sports information director (I hope I got the title right). She's a wonderful young lady and very interesting to talk to. Go to to see her handiwork. Thanks, Carly.
There's another website that you might want to visit. has some good articles written by guest columnists and by Andy Losik who is the webmaster of this site. Andy is a former Charger and a great booster and fan to Charger football. Thank you, Andy.
Of course, there's always Charger football at Stats are posted almost immediately after the games. How do they do this so fast?? I always check out the stats after each game when I get home.

After missing last week's game, I am ready for some football. Are you? Have a safe trip, we'll see you all Saturday.

Let's go Chargers!!!!!
