Thank You to Cortland Sports Boosters!

A huge thank you is going out to the Cortland booster club.  With special help from Machell Phelps, Kate O'Connell and Tom and Cindy Fernandes the Dryden Sports Boosters were able to co host the concession stand on Friday night.  Purple runs deep and it's awesome to live in a community where we all help each other out in times of need.  If you know any of these special people please thank them for all their efforts!

Also and update on our next meeting on Thursday

Please join us on Thursday night at 6:30 in the high school library.  Dryden sports boosters will be holding our regular monthly meeting along with a representative from the Dryden Youth Bureau.  She will be discussing how our  students and athletes compare to other areas along with how drugs and alcohol effect our kids brain development.  We hope to see you there.

Thank you
Wendy

The Dryden Sports Boosters and the Dryden High School cross country team hosted the 7th annual 5K Run for the Pride race on the 26th.  134 registered participants (one from as far away from Virginia) had a nice run on the Dryden Cross Country Team’s trail on a beautiful Sunday Morning. 

We’d like to thank the organizers, sponsors and many volunteers that helped make the 7th running of this event a success.

Boosters seeking new Volunteers

posted Aug 8, 2018, 1:53 PM by Lance Cole

August 31st 2010.  The initial meeting of the Dryden Sports Boosters. There were 16 people in attendance including, then athletic director Ralph Boettger.  From that meeting and others following it for about 4 months we came up with a vision to continue and expand upon what Russ Kowalski had created in the years prior to 2010 with the Dryden Lions Athletic Club.

The photos are of the boosters very first purchase of a new score board for the soccer field.

The Dryden Sports Boosters will start their 9th year when we have our Budget Meeting on Thursday the 16th.  With awesome volunteer work the boosters are approaching $80,000 in contributions back to Dryden Athletics.  Volunteers range from elected officers to PR coordinators to concessions coordinators to concession volunteers. All serve a very vital role in the continued success of the boosters.  Of those original 16, two remain and they are taking on fewer tasks as they move on.  So,  the Boosters are looking for NEW Dryden Fans to fill volunteer roles.  If you are interested stop by the table at the Fall Coaches/Parent Meetings for more information. 

The JV / Varsity meeting is Thursday August 9th starting at 6:30 in the auditorium and the modified meeting will be Sunday August 19th at 6:30 in the auditorium. Parents/guardians and student-athletes are asked to please attend these very important informational meeting.

Thank you and see you on the fields, courses, tracks, courts and pools.

From outgoing DSB President Jerry Goodenough

posted Jan 7, 2018, 8:49 AM by Lance Cole

All –
 
I want to let everyone know of the outcome from our December annual meeting and election of officers.  All four positions have new leaders in the respective roles.  I think this is a fantastic outcome and I appreciate the new folks stepping up.  The new positions take effect immediately, and are as follows:
 
President:           Wendy Shipman (previous VP for 3 years)
Vice President:  Jeff Humphrey
Treasurer:          Anissa Sanford
Secretary:           Lisa Cavataio
 
Congrats to these folks and to DSB for I know this group will lead DSB to even greater opportunities for the sports programs at Dryden!
 
I am very grateful to all who have supported DSB during my time as President.  There are a couple of us still around from the time we re-started the program about 8 years ago.  We were deliberate in laying the foundation for this group and I am very pleased with how this organization has developed and the accomplishments we have made.  I am confident that the ground work we have started will help to build to greater things with all the new ideas and energy from the incoming leaders and new members.
 
I want to take the time to thank Dawn, Wendy and Lance for the hard work put in the last 3-4 years.  It is hard to single anyone person out, DSB has many hard workers and functions as a whole, however, I do not know what I would have done without the guidance, financial acumen, and most importantly friendship of Lance Cole.  He is one of the founders of DSB, has held many leadership positions, volunteers for everything, keeps up the website, and takes many great pictures.  Thanks for all you have meant to DSB Lance!
 
All of us outgoing officers will be around to continue to help out and support this wonderful group.  And all of you please continue to support DSB, a great organization.
 
Happy Holidays to all - Jerry

The Sports Boosters held their yearly Officer Elections last night. All 4 positions only had one nominee so they ran unopposed. There will be 3 new faces and one change of positions for the Executive Board.
Wendy Shipman moves from the vice president position to president, replacing Jerry Goodenough who had served his maximum 4 year term as president. Jeff Humphrey will serve as Vice president. Lisa Cavataio will become our new secretary, replacing Dawn Tordel after serving 3 terms. Anissa Sanford will serve as treasurer, replacing Lance Cole, who had been treasurer for 2 terms after serving 4 as vice president. Thank you to all for your service and for your commitment to the Dryden Sports Boosters.

For a history of the Boosters officers please see this link.

It is somewhat the end of an era with Lance and Jerry leaving the Executive Board. Both are the two remaining members from the very first meeting on August 31st, 2010 when then AD Ralph Davidson Boettger invited a group of Dryden residents to a meeting to continue and expand upon what Russ Kowalski had created in the years prior to 2010 with the Dryden Lions Athletic Club.
