The Brownstown Central football program is conducting youth camps in the coming weeks and preparing for a golf scramble.
Camp for boys entering Grades 3 through 6 in the fall is from 3:45 to 5 p.m. Monday through May 16 at Brownstown Elementary School. Campers will be taught how to throw, catch and run with a football and be introduced to basic football terminology.
Camp for boys entering Grades 7 through 9 in the fall is from 3:30 to 5 p.m. May 19 through 23 at Brownstown Central Middle School’s practice field. The skills camp is for all positions and will be devoted to working on the passing game.
For each camp, cost is $25 if you are pre-registered or $30 if you sign up on the first day. For students who are eligible for free or reduced-price lunch, it’s $20 pre-registered and $25 day of the camp.
On May 18, the 11th annual Brownstown Central Football Alumni Association golf scramble will be at Hickory Hills Golf Club in Brownstown. Registration will begin at noon, with a shotgun start at 1 p.m. The scramble is open to everyone.
The entry fee is $40 per player or $240 per team and includes green fees, cart, lunch and soft drinks. Make checks payable to “BCHS POPS Club.”
Teams need to list the names of their six players, including the team captain, on a form and mail it to: BCFAA, 871 Buena Vista Drive, Brownstown, IN 47220. Single entries also can send their registration to that address, and they will be placed on a team the day of the scramble.
Also, companies can sponsor a hole for $100. Sponsorship does not include player entry. The form, including sponsor name, contact person, address, phone number, fax number and email address, can be mailed to the previously mentioned address.
Prizes will be awarded to the winning team, and there will be longest putt, longest drive and closest to the pin awards. A special game format that has a football twist will be implemented. The first shot on holes 2, 5, 8, 11, 14 and 17 will be a punt, pass or kick. A 1-yard stick can be purchased per team to be used on the last putt of each hole. You can only use 36 inches for the entire scramble.
All proceeds will benefit the Brownstown Central Football Alumni Association, which supports the entire football program from third- and fourth-grade flag football to the varsity team.
