Snack Bar Cheaters

September 20, 2012

When it comes to football, I tend to stay out of my husband’s way. I go to all the games, exchange niceties with parents, I go the awards dinner, but it ends there. I am not involved with boosters and I don’t get involved with fundraising. This year, I am considering changing my position.

We are at a new school this year. It’s been a happy change for us, however, the booster club parents aren’t used to dealing with a highly involved coach that knows all the in and outs of what they are supposed to be doing. We are both upset I find out that after having our first home game that the snack bar only cleared $600. It’s just not possible. That snack bar was open though JV and varsity games. They had a line the whole time! Two lines in fact! Plus we had an additional outside vendor that was sharing a portion of her proceeds.

We used to clear minimum $1500 at our last school, and that was with minimal attendance. Hell, we didn’t even have a pep band there! I really didn’t want to get involved but I think I have to. If the booster club is skimming from snack bar, what other fundraisers have they skimmed from? This could be a huge difference in the pot we have to pull money from for camps, spirit packs and buses for away games if needed!

CC’s job is never easy, but he doesn’t need to worry about snack bar funds while he is trying to win football games. Ugh, It may be time to really get into boosters and ease my way into these women. Lord know they may not want a coach’s wife involved, but if it keeps them honest, then so be it.
