MVP

Posted on November 14, 2011ADD COMMENTS

All we can say is, WOW!  We raised $3,800 for the Mammography Voucher Program.  Thank you BBoP!

BBoP!!

Here we are on week 15 with a record that does not truly show what our team is capable of. Last week we were 95 strong as we watched a heartbreaking loss to the Bills. Granted, our offense was horrible, but it was still awful to lose to a team that by all rights we should have beaten.

This Sunday, December 19th at 1 pm

CLEVELAND BROWNS @ CINCINNATI BUN-GALS

Come to the Lube and cheer on your beloved Browns so our holiday will be brighter with a WIN!

See the link below for trivia questions!!
Browns Bits – Week 15

2011 Officer Nominations and Voting
Nominations for your 2011 BBoP officers are in! Without further ado…

  • President: Kim Touhey, Peyton Hillis
  • Vice President: Adam Drake, Rick Evans, John Roush, Dave Ward
  • Treasurer: Kristin Rippel
  • Secretary: Michele Evans

Since Peyton can not take enough time off from the Browns organization, he graciously conceded the position to me! LOL (Seriously, someone nominated him so I had to add his name to the list!) SOOOOOOOO…

The only position we will be electing is Vice President. You will vote for TWO (2)!

Forms will be handed out as you come to the club on Sunday. Only members may vote! Absentee votes will be counted if you respond in an e-mail to me at brownsbackersofpinellas@yahoo.com by 11 AM Sunday morning! (I will print them so that they are time-stamped for voting purposes.) We will be voting for TWO (2) Vice Presidents on Sunday!

Wildlife Rescue Check Presentation
Vernon Yates from the Wildlife Rescue and Rehab will be on hand this week to accept the check for the donation to his organization. He had a rescue last week at the last minute that prevented him from being there. Everyone should be proud of the wonderful total that our club raised for this charity! I will give the amount in the next newsletter as it is substantial and we want to keep it a surprise until the check presentation!

Final Week for the BBoP Store!
THIS WILL BE THE LAST WEEK FOR THE CLUB STORE TO BE OPEN!! T-shirts, coozies, lighters and other gift items are still available! The BBoP Store will be closed after that and only t-shirts will be available at the banquet!

Year-End Banquet Details Almost Finalized
The tentative date for the 2010-11 BBoP Year-End Banquet will be Saturday, January 22nd, 2011. Details will follow next week!

I know this is a busy and hectic time for everyone, but we SOOOO appreciate all those who make time for us and come to the club to support the Browns!

See you Sunday, and as always…
GO BROWNS!!!

- Your BBoP Officers

BROWNS BACKERS!!

Sorry about getting this out so late, but retail hours are murder this time of year! How great was it that Phil got the 14th game-winning field goal of his career last week??

AND, this week will be even better as we move to 6-7 with a win over the Bills.

This Sunday, December 12th at 1 pm

CLEVELAND BROWNS @ BUFFALO JILLS

Be at the Lube as we take those Jills down! The Browns have taken the last 3 games, with the last 2 being in Buffalo. (Plus, my sister and son will be there rooting for the wrong team and it will be fun to make them cry!)

Browns Bits – Week 14

Silent Auction is a Huge Success
Our auction last week was a huge success!! There were close to 100 people in the room and the Wildlife Rescue and Rehab will see a nice check from it! Total to be announced tomorrow at the game during the ceremony.

Angel Tree Gift Reminder
Please remember to bring in the presents you bought for your “angel” this week!! Put the tag on the outside of the package after you have wrapped it.

2011 BBoP Officer Nominations
Nominations of officers for the 2011 season will be held tomorrow. The current full slate of officers are running again, but we would still like to see us formally nominated – AND/OR choose another candidate whom you think would do a good job for the club! Voting will take place on the 19th. Get your nomination form from Judy at the game tomorrow.

That’s it for now…
GO BROWNS!!!

BROWNS BACKERS!!

After the crazy finish to last week’s game, I am ready for a good old fashioned throttling of the Dolphins! Who’s with me??!! Although Jake Delhomme is starting, so not sure if that’s good or bad. At least Seneca is healthy if needed!!

This Sunday, December 5th at 1 pm

CLEVELAND BROWNS @ MIAMI DOLPHINS

Many of you are going to the game, so I hope you take some great pics and post them on our site at pics@brownsbackersofpinellas.org!

Angel Tree Gifts
Please bring in your wrapped gifts if you selected an angel from the tree last week. Remember you get an extra 50/50 ticket if you bring the gift this week. We will still be accepting gifts next week, but no extra 50/50 – so pick an angel and start wrapping!!

Silent Auction This Week
Our auction will be held this week and it has so many fantastic items that they are just too numerous to mention them all. MANY autographed items are available, so bid on the ones you’d like to have or give as gifts! CASH or CHECK only please! The auction this year benefits the Wildlife Rescue and Rehab in Seminole. who will speak to us at halftime about all that they do.

Quilt Raffle Wraps Up
This is the FINAL week for the giant hand-sewn Browns quilt donated by Harry and Cindy Provan! If you want a chance to win this amazing piece, be sure to pick up your tickets this week as we’ll be raffling it off during the game!

No trivia link this week, so I’ll try to make questions easy! Short letter this week… off to work for me! See you tomorrow and GO BROWNS!!!
