PROGRAM:. Jeff Minnick presented a program requesting lottery funds for the Alliance Junior Tackle Football program.. The football program serves boys ranging from third grade through sixth grade, with 9 coaches.. 38 kids participated last year, but the cost was prohibitive for the general public.. The goal of the program is to reduce family costs to the registration fee alone, which means establishing a stock of basic protective gear that can be reassigned to boys year after year.. They are challenged to find a way to provide assistance for the purchase of helmets, which would not be the property of the league.. This assistance would enable more if not all interested boys to play football in the league.. All league games are played at the Carpenter Center in Scottsbluff.. Total estimated cost per participant, NOT including travel and meals, is $200 for a season. The league has already raised funds that should cover some costs, and if undesignated, the money received from Lions Club would go toward standard amount ?rebates? for families who purchase helmets.. ^Lion Tom asked whether it was possible to designate funds so that the equipment provided by the Lions Club could be identified as such and remain in the program, rather than distributing Lions money directly to the participants.. Lion Tom asked whether other funds raised by the league could be used to provide reimbursement for helmets instead.. Jeff said that they would do whatever we chose for them to do, and mentioned that the league also had hopes of purchasing tackling dummies for the program. ^There being no further business, the meeting adjourned.
