I am the secretary of the Clarke County High School Band Association (CCBA).
On September 1st our CCHS Eagle Logo magnet sales at home football games was not approved because the Eagles Athletic Association (EAA) is also selling magnets.
This denial is unfair and unwarranted.
We have been selling our logo magnets at the home football games for the past two years. It’s not clear why magnet sales by two different CCHS fund raising organizations cannot be conducted at the same time.
It is my understanding there are two different CCHS organizations currently selling T-shirts at the games.
Unlike the EAA, the CCBA does not have very many opportunities in the way of fund raisers. From our perspective, the EAA has many higher volume sales opportunities including game ticket sales and the concession stand.
We strongly feel that our magnet sales would have little impact on EAA sales, and that both organizations can profit from the good will of Clarke supporters.
