Senior Night October 23rd 5:15pm

Dobson High School’s Fall Sports Senior Night Ceremony will be held October 23rd on the football field prior to kickoff of the game. For this event, DHS Seniors participating in Fall sports and their parents/guardians have been invited to gather on the field and be introduced to the crowd in processional format (similar to graduation). Formal or casual apparel is appropriate and a photographer will be present and capture each Senior/parent photo as they are announced.

For this event, families are permitted to create a poster for their student-athlete and hang the poster on the chain link fence facing the field. Dobson Football Booster Club volunteers will be on the field at 5pm to provide zip ties and provide direction for hanging the posters. Posters should be no larger than standard poster board, can include pictures and other decorations. An Internet search for “Senior Night Poster” can provide you with design ideas. Please plan to collect your poster after the game (or remove it before the game begins).

The following Senior Night ceremony schedule has been provided by the school. Please plan to be on the field from about 5:15pm to 6:30pm.

  • 5:15pm – Arrive with your senior’s poster to be hung on the fencing facing/adjacent to the track. Football boosters will be present to assist.
  • 5:30pm – Photos taken of each athlete with their parents/guardians for Football, Cheer, Trainers, and Band. Be on the football field at this time. Your player will be released from the locker room to join you.
  • 6:20pm – Announcement processional of athletes with parents/guardians for Football, Cheer, and Trainers (Band at half time). Each group lines up in alphabetical order by student’s last name. Players are to immediately return to their team for preparation before kickoff at 7pm.
  • 6:30pm – Announcement processional of athletes with parents/guardians and photos taken at this time for ROTC, Badminton, Cross Country, Golf, and Swim. Each group lines up in alphabetical order by student’s last name.
  • Lou Coopey Photography will be taking the photos and 1 copy will be distributed by the school at a later date. For additional copies, visit Mrs. Koch for the order form.

August Fundraisers

August Fundraising

 

Dobson Friends & Family – Players need your help in raising the funds that pay for our professional game filming services, especially for the freshmen and JV games, ($200 a game). Fundraising also pays for other apparel: shirts, dry fits, and socks – both white and pink. We always pay for the helmet decals,  meals for our lunch time meetings, and much much more.

 

Mustang Card Blitz – 8/4 to 8/19

These are discount cards the players sell to friends, family and neighbors for local merchants. Coaches will hand out cards during practice beginning Monday 8/4. Each player should try to sell at least 10. There will be incentives with each level sold. At 10 sold, the player will receive a free Dri-fit shirt – this what all members wear for games under their shoulder pads. They will also get a “Get out of Running pass,” to use on the days they usually condition. For every 5 cards sold above 10, players will get a $25 visa gift card. Last year, Skyline Football sold 1800 cards with Westwood Football selling 1700 cards. Dobson can do better than that with your help and from your co-workers. This will be a two week blitz ending on Aug 19. All unsold cards must be returned before that date or the player will be charged for them. We will host a Pizza party for the team that sells the most.

Article I

Purpose

The purpose of the conflict of interest policy is to protect this tax-exempt organization’s, (Dobson Football Booster Club, referred to as DFBC) interest when it is contemplating entering into a transaction or arrangement that might benefit the private interest of an officer or director of the DFBC or might result in a possible excess benefit transaction. This policy is intended to supplement but not replace any applicable state and federal laws governing conflict of interest applicable to nonprofit and charitable organizations.

Article II

Definitions

1. Interested Person

Any director, principal officer, or member of a committee with governing board delegated powers, who has a direct or indirect financial interest, as defined below, is an interested person.

a. An ownership or investment Interest in any entity with which the DFBC has a transaction or arrangement,

b. A compensation arrangement with the DFBC or with any entity or individual with which the DFBC has a transaction or arrangement, or

c. A potential ownership or investment interest in, or compensation arrangement with, any entity or individual with which the DFBC is negotiating a transaction or arrangement.

Compensation includes direct and indirect remuneration as well as gifts or favors that are not insubstantial.

A financial Interest Is not necessarily a conflict of interest. Under ArtIcle III, Section 2, a person who has a financial interest may have a conflict of interest only if the appropriate governing board or committee decides that a conflict of interest exists.

Article III

Procedures

1. Duty to Disclose

In connection with any actual or possible conflict of interest, an interested person must disclose the existence of the financial interest and be given the opportunity to disclose all material facts to the directors and members of committees with governing board delegated powers considering the proposed transaction or arrangement.

2. Determining Whether a Conflict of Interest Exists

After disclosure of the financial interest and all material facts, and after any discussion with the interested person, he/she shall leave the governing board or committee meeting while the determination of a conflict of interest is discussed and voted upon. The remaining board or committee members shall decide if a conflict of interest exists.

3. Procedures for Addressing the Conflict of Interest

b. The chairperson of the governing board or committee shall, if appropriate, appoint a disinterested person or committee to investigate alternatives to the proposed transaction or arrangement.

c. After exercising due diligence, the governing board or committee shall determine whether the DFBC can obtain with reasonable efforts a more advantageous transaction or arrangement from a person or entity that would not give rise to a conflict of interest.

d. If a more advantageous transaction or arrangement is not reasonably possible under circumstances not producing a conflict of interest, the governing board or committee shall determine by a majority vote of the disinterested directors whether the transaction or arrangement is in the DFBC’s best interest, for its own benefit, and whether it is fair and reasonable. In conformity with the above determination it shall make its decision as to whether to enter into the transaction or arrangement.

4. Violations of the Conflict of Interest Policy

a. If the governing board or committee has reasonable cause to believe a member has failed to disclose actual or possible conflicts of interest, it shall inform the member of the basis for such belief and afford the member an opportunity to explain the alleged failure to disclose.

b. If, after hearing the member’s response and after making further investigation as warranted by the circumstances, the governing board or committee determines the member has failed to disclose an actual or possible conflict of interest, it shall take appropriate disciplinary and corrective action.

Article IV

Records of Proceedings

The minutes of the governing board and all committees with board delegated powers shall contain:

a. The names of the persons who disclosed or otherwise were found to have a financial interest in connection with an actual or possible conflict of interest, the nature of the financial interest, any action taken to determine whether a conflict of interest was present, and the governing board’s or committee’s decision as to whether a conflict of interest in fact existed.

b. The names of the persons who were present for discussions and votes relating to the transaction or arrangement, the content of the discussion, including any alternatives to the proposed transaction or arrangement, and a record of any votes taken in connection with the proceedings.

b. Has read and understands the policy,

c. Has agreed to comply with the policy, and

d. Understands the DFBC is charitable and in order to maintain its federal tax exemption it must engage primarily In activities which accomplish one or more of its tax-exempt purposes.

Article VI

To ensure the DFBC operates in a manner consistent with charitable purposes and does not engage in activities that could jeopardize its tax-exempt status, periodic reviews shall be conducted. The periodic reviews shall, at a minimum, include the following subjects:

a. Whether compensation arrangements and benefits are reasonable, based on competent survey information, the result of arm’s length bargaining.

b. Whether partnerships, joint ventures, and arrangements with management organizations conform to the DFBC’s written policies, are properly recorded, reflect reasonable investment or payments for goods and services, further charitable purposes and do not result in inurement, impermissible private benefit or in an excess benefit transaction.

Article VII

Use of Outside Experts

When conducting the periodic reviews as provided for in Article VI, the DFBC may, but need not, use outside advisors. If outside experts are used, their use shall not relieve the governing board of its responsibility for ensuring periodic reviews are conducted.

    – Combining money from all locations is fair, and we should continue to do so
    – Having kids stay in a position that suits their talents (bringing in customers and donations for example) is preferred over rotating everyone

Give golfers a sheet that has their name on it when they walk in, indicates whether they paid for registration or not. If not paid, need to have a spot for a Board Member to sign off when it is paid. Need to fix package pricing next year. Ball markers need to be first in the line… the whole line should have done different.
    Roamers: Take ice, water, and snacks. Need someone responsible to ride along w/ the beer cart.
    Dixon Hole: Golfers were pressured too much. Too much information. Surprised by presentation during lunch. We received check for $236

    – Update from Jason Lindsey – They are extremely grateful for all of the work that our Booster Clubs do and have done to help out our students. Thank you for your hard work in trying to “outfit” our new concession stands.  While in the process of securing donations, I think it would be a good idea for you to let me know what your DFBC would like to purchase before any purchases are made.  Also, prior to any items being brought to our campus, we would need the DFBC to list the items to be donated to the school so we can put these items on our inventory list and know what is on our campus.  Terrie Armstrong, principal’s secretary, or I will have the equipment donation forms.

SUMMER PASSING SEASON

Cost To Play Football

Let’s face it, everything costs more these days and we are all looking for good values. Fortunately for our Dobson Football players and families, we have one of the lowest cost programs in the area! The chart above shows the per-player cost to play football at Dobson and several sample schools that are also Dobson’s competition.


We recently asked Head Coach George De La Torre about the cost to play football and, specifically, the cost for annual camp. “It costs a lot more than people think,” said Coach De La Torre, “to provide bus transportation for all these players, pay for their lodging, at least three meals a day, electricity for the facilities, security guards, janitorial, etc. It all adds up.”


And it all adds up at home as well. Practice equipment, game uniforms, trainer staff, coaches, tape, ice, water, referees – the list goes on from there. Dobson doesn’t have the cheapest football team in town and that’s a good thing. We want decent equipment to keep our kids relatively safe, a solid coaching staff to provide guidance, great trainers to tape weakened ankles, etc. Our players need those things.


Your Dobson Football Booster Club (DFBC) works hard to compliment the fundraising done by the players. We obtain local sponsorships, food and other donations, and support for various fundraising events like the annual Golf Tournament. All of this helps to provide more training, equipment, and other things for the players.


The bottom line is that at about $400, Dobson Football is a good value now and each year it gets a little better.

Coaches Bruce Arians and George De La Torre

Dobson Mustangs Head Coach George De La Torre recently enjoyed a casual dinner with Arizona Cardinals Head Coach Bruce Arians. The two coaches have similar experiences. Both were hired to turn around struggling teams and both of their teams play in very tough divisions. It looks like they enjoyed their time together.
