NKC Wildcat Jr Midget Weekly News
At a glance...
Sunset is at 7:17. We are losing daylight quickly. Please be ready to pick your kids up no later than 8. I have been told that he will be letting practice out a bit early since its so dark. What that means exactly? I don't know! But it will be earlier than it has been. If this is an issue for you, please let us know. We realize several of you have kids at other fields. Many of us are willing and able to help each other out with rides.
When practice moves, due to the darkness- it will move to Happy Rock Park. This week we are STILL AT OAK PARK...We may move next week...WE WILL LET YOU KNOW WHEN WE KNOW FOR SURE. THIS WEEK COME TO OAK PARK.
October- Breast Cancer Awareness Month- PINK SOCKS
The boys usually wear pink socks in October for Breast Cancer Awareness. I have placed the order for the boys and they will be $4 a pair. I ordered each boy 1 pair. If you need a smaller size or more than one pair, please let me know ASAP.

WILDCATS ADULT VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!!
5K ROAD MARSHAL’S FOR GLADFEST 5K RUN SUNDAY OCT 4TH, 2015
This is the event that we have to provide road marshals to the City of Gladstone as part of the agreement with them when we receive field permits for their practice fields. Even if you don’t practice at a Gladstone park, we ask that you provide help, because if we lose the Gladstone practice fields, it will make your practice site much more crowded as we move the Gladstone teams to your sites to practice. This 5K race helps fund the Mayor’s Christmas tree fund that helps needy families at Christmas time. We need 2 or 3 volunteers per squad. The 5K is early Sunday morning Oct 4th. You will need to be at your assigned street by 7:10 am and the Run will start at 7:30am. It will be over by 8:45 am so you can still make it to church. The 5K takes place in the neighbor hood around Central Park & Gladstone Community Center. Road Marshal stations will be marked with a numbered orange cone. Once you volunteer to help we will issue you a map of the 5K route. You find your assigned street and then your job is fairly easy. Just stop cars that may be passing while runners are in your area. There is very little traffic that time of the morning so it’s a pretty easy job. Matt Hoops will drive around before the race starts to make sure all road marshals are present. Once the race is over Matt will drive around and collect the orange cone at your spot and give you your free 5K T shirt for volunteering, then you are free to go.
Please email Matt & Karen at firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer or let your business manager know and she will pass that info on to us. (Please let us know what squad your player is on).
Thank you for your continued support of the Wildcats & your community.
If you are on Facebook and have not joined the team pages, please see the links at the bottom. If you have played for Coach Wycoff before and are on the page from last year, JOIN THE NEW ONE PLEASE. This way if you need to carpool or need information, it is with current parents. If the players have FB pages, they can request to join it. I just ask that if you invite someone has a different name, you let me know. If I don't recognize the name, they will NOT be approved. We would like to just limit it to parents, grandparents and players who need the information we are sharing.
