Parent Meeting, Naked Beef, Apparel Pick-up and Raffle Ticket Information - Sunday, September 19, 2021
Thank you to everyone that helped get runners to Lakeville. Again, we apologize for the inconvenience this caused.
We would like to have a short parent meeting Sunday at the high school at 3:45pm.
Naked Beef final pick up will be at 4:00 p.m.
There will be apparel pick up as well.
You can turn in your raffle tickets and money if you have sold your tickets. The raffle winner will be drawn Thursday at the Beef O Brady final fundraiser. All money and raffle tickets need to be turned in by then.
There is NO BUSING for tomorrow’s race.
Unfortunately, the board receive this information this evening. Due to liability issues, the board and team representatives are unable to coordinate runners’ transportation to the race. Thus, parents will need to transport their runners to the race in Lakeville, MN. Please have your runners in Lakeville an hour before their race time.
Runners should leave Andover no later than the times listed below:
1:30 Boys JV
2:00 Girls JV
2:30 Boys Varsity
3:00 Girls Varsity
3:30 Boys C team
4:00 Girls C team
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause runners and families.
Please know that the school is working closely with transportation companies and the school district transportation department on providing transportation to future events. However, we may encounter this throughout the season.
The Andover AD is working with the Anoka High School AD to find transportation for both teams to potentially share a bus for those runners that don’t have rides. However, please do NOT count on this transportation, as they are having a difficult time obtaining transportation.

We wanted to send out another reminder to sell Raffle tickets. We know several reminders have been sent out, but we wanted parents to know how the funds from fundraisers are spent to be transparent with the team. The Raffle tickets, along with the other fundraising, helps the Booster Club pay for expenses such as coach pay, uniforms, team building activities, end-of-year banquet, equipment and more. Last year the Board did not fundraise, so we are trying to recoup from last year to ensure future teams have minimal impact.
We have several Runners that have not sold Raffle tickets so far. If your Runner needs Raffle tickets, please contact Teri at email@example.com or any other Board Member.
It’s a 50/50 Raffle. Tickets are $1.00 each. The drawing will be held Thursday, September 23, 2021 at the Beef O’Brady’s fundraiser.
Good evening Huskies,

Raffle Ticket reminder….If your Runner needs more raffle tickets to sell to individuals that are 18 and over, please contact a Board Member. Tickets will be available at tonight’s Board Meeting as well.
