As our season nears the end we are gearing up for our 21st Annual Platypus Lacrosse Festival to be held 5/30 & 5/31 at Madison HS. For those of you that have not had the pleasure Platypus is a two day celebration of lacrosse that is also our clubs biggest fundraiser. This year more than 60 teams in grades 4-7 will be participating in our event. Games will begin at 9am and finish around 3pm on both days. Eight fields between MHS and the MRC will be in play.
Putting on such an event takes lots of help. Madison Jr. Lacrosse asks that our families help out in 2 ways over the weekend.
1. We ask that one adult from each of our families in grades 4-7 volunteer for a 2 hour shift over the weekend. You may be asked to sell T-shirts, park cars,work the food hut or sell raffle tickets. This year we are using Sign Up Genius to handle the sign ups. The faster you follow the link and sign up the better chance you will get your preferred day and time. Keep in mind that 4th and 5th grade will be playing on Saturday and 6th & 7th will be playing on Sunday so you may want to sign up for a day opposite when your son plays if you don't want to miss a game.
2. We are also going to ask that each family make a donation of a case of water, soda or Gatorade for sale during the event. Since drinks are donated each sale is 100% profit to Madison Jr. Lacrosse. We will be sending out a follow-up email to each team in the next few days to let you know what to donate and where to bring it.
Thank you to everyone in advance for your continued help and support in putting on this great event.
