Welcome back to another great year of Cardinal Athletics!

The Pleasant Plains Athletic Booster Club (PPABC) leadership team has been meeting all summer to bring you great new merchandise and to prepare for the upcoming sports seasons.  We continue to work to bring new ideas and new faces to the PPABC table.  Please consider attending our monthly meetings and becoming more involved with your Club.

The PPABC has held the line on membership dues again this year!  So please, become a member, because your membership dues form the base for each year’s uniform budget. This is a huge help for all the teams.  As a special thank you, PPABC members are granted free admission to all regular season home contests! You will find a membership application in this packet.

Each year new uniforms are purchased for the teams by PPABC on a rotating basis, with each team getting new uniform every four years.  The PPABC budgets approximately $18,000 per year to meet these needs.  We also have an annual grant program that allows coaches and teams to request money for new equipment.

Our new merchandise offerings are included in this newsletter.  As in past years, sports specific items will be sold by the individual teams.  PPABC will focus on universal designs.  You may purchase your gear at special events throughout the year as well as using the order form attached.  We will have many items available for cash and carry, as well as some that must be pre-ordered.  We continue to improve our selections based on input from our shoppers!

While membership dues and merchandise sales help to support the teams, our greatest revenue source is the concession stand.  Everyone can help here! SAY YES when you are asked to sign up for a concession shift.  You win by meeting new people in our community AND supporting our teams.

There are so many opportunities for involvement in PPABC.  How do you want to help?  Will you be a team parent, responsible for scheduling concession volunteers?  Are you a merchandise genius? What new idea do you want to introduce?  How can you help PPABC grow?  What is our next big project?

PPABC regular meetings are held at 6:30 p.m., the second Tuesday of each month.  Please email for location sites as they may change from month to month.

Thank you for all the support you have shown our student athletes throughout the year.  PPABC continues to grow because of our great members and volunteers!
