Today is the last day Powderpuff forms for participating junior and senior girls and guy coaches can be turned in to room 201, however, forms will be accepted by 11:00 a.m. tomorrow for a late fee of $10.
“We’re excited about it, just very nervous,” KOE sponsor Lindsey Scheller. “We want any girl who wants to play to do it. We’re just nervous they won’t hear about it and come to us too late and we couldn’t do anything about it.”
Due to Homecoming being moved up to Sept. 15 because of a different football schedule this school year, the annual Powderpuff game has also been made earlier. It will be held on Sept. 12. Because of this early game date, students had just two weeks to hear about Powderpuff and get their forms signed and turned in.
“It makes it really inconvenient,” senior Julia Brady said. “We had to go to a meeting like the second day of school. It wasn’t advertised very well.”
Advertising was a large focus of Powderpuff this year because of such a short period of time to sign up. KOE advertised the game through Facebook and Twitter posts, with posters around school, during classroom announcements, in e-news, on the school website and in the parent newsletter.
“I think we’ve done everything we can to advertise,” KOE sponsor Diane Holmes said. “I felt more rushed originally and stressed about it, but now I think it’ll work out just fine.”
