Let the good times roll.

Coming off of a hugely successful Crab Feed, the Coupeville Booster Club let the money rain down on Wolf sports programs this week.

Flush with cash from the year’s biggest fundraiser, the club approved six different requests from CHS and CMS sports programs.

“We had a very productive Booster Club meeting,” said board President Wendi Hilborn.

That was a sentiment echoed by everyone in the room.

“This makes us SO happy!!,” said board member Jess Lucero. “In the past, not all teams took advantage of their team improvement money.”

Requests approved Thursday, to the tune of almost $10,000:

A timing system for CMS/CHS cross country – $1,297.66.

Headsets for CMS/CHS football – $2,430.00.

CMS basketball shooting shirts – $694.00.

CHS boys basketball travel bags – $1,319.21.

LED display timing system for CMS/CHS track – $2,110.11

CHS baseball pitching machine – $1,736.00.

Funding Wolf sports programs is an ongoing business, but membership fees (join today!) and fundraisers help the Booster Club keep chugging along.

“The Crab Feed was a success and this always puts the board at ease, as it lets us know we meet our budgeted obligations,” Lucero said.

“We want to thank those who supported the Crab Feed by donating items, services, or volunteering man hours to make it happen,” she added. “We would have virtually nothing to give teams if it wasn’t for the Crab Feed.”

“Dang it, the ‘stache stays, Sherry! In the words of ’70s rock gods ELO … It’s a livin’ thing; It’s a terrible thing to lose; It’s a given thing; What a terrible thing to lose.” (Photos by Ema Smith)

“Was I not clear on this, sir? I’m just sayin’, you give my friend here a free 7-Up and maybe you get to keep using all your fingers. Maybe.”

When she uses that strawberry shampoo.

There’s another side to the Coupeville Booster Club’s annual Crab Feed.

Sure, the event is the biggest fundraiser of the year, and sure, all that money helps drive Wolf athletics for another year.

Community members get to mingle, and all is good and well.

Unless you’re a crab!

Than it’s The Night of a Thousand Butter Pats, an urban legend crab moms pass down to scare their unruly children at bed time.

At least I’d like to think so.

One second you’re the first crab in your whole family to go to college. The next you’re headed to the big hot tub in the sky. Life comes at you fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in awhile, you could miss it.

That moment when you realize the crabs didn’t volunteer.

“Get in the pot, crabs! The Strawberry Slammer has spoken!!”

“Hey there, little crab buddies, I’ll sneak you out of this joint. You can hide in my pot of butter. Of course I brought my own butter pot … does it look like this is my first time at the rodeo, skippy?”

“Pinch, pinch, lil’ crabbies. You all float down here.”

“Goodnight, sweet crab princes, and flights of angels sing thee to thy butter-encrusted rest.”

Why did Superintendent Steve King bounce from Oak Harbor to Coupeville? The food’s much better over here.

The circle of life is fueled by crustaceans.

The Coupeville Booster Club threw its yearly Crab Feed shindig Saturday, packing the Nordic Lodge Hall and raising a ton of money for CHS athletes.

The event is the biggest fundraiser for the boosters, and, along with the food, and the auctions, it also attracts a high class of paparazzi.

Ema Smith, uber-talented Wolf senior, returned to swing the camera lens on the crowd, and the photos above are courtesy her.

You (yes, you) have the power to help make Coupeville sports soar to new heights.

With a simple, yet deeply significant move — joining the school’s Booster Club — you can help finance and fuel the mission of helping the Wolf sports programs thrive.

But I don’t want to do a lot of work, you say. No problem.

Membership in the Booster Club doesn’t mean you need to participate or volunteer in their activities or fundraisers, or even attend meetings, though the more that do that, the lighter the load for all involved.

But whether you want to go full-time hard-core, or just write a check and feel a warm glow in your chest, the options are many.

The Booster Club is an independent 501c3 organization which supports the athletes and athletic activities of the Coupeville School District.

Working with the players, coaches, Athletic Director, administrators and local businesses and fans, the club provides financial support for items and activities the school district doesn’t cover.

This includes providing athletes with varsity letters and emblems, buying roses for Senior Night festivities, organizing the Homecoming parade, awarding scholarships, holding athlete appreciation dinners and covering ASB fees for those in financial needs.

The club also runs an annual sports physical program, and funds specific requests for equipment or team-building activities from CHS and CMS coaches.

In recent months, this has meant purchasing items such as a high jump mat, weight room equipment, football headsets, soccer goals, HUDL memberships, specialized volleyball and basketball equipment, and baseball and softball bats and helmets.

The Booster Club also paid for the purchase and updating of the record boards for CHS football and volleyball, and was an invaluable ally in the creation, installation and updating of the Wall of Fame in the high school gym.

To make this all possible, to keep the circle of life going for Wolf Nation, the Booster Club raises funds through memberships, fundraisers (such as the annual Crab Feed in Nov.), apparel sales, and private donations.

Which brings us back to how a simple act, buying an annual membership, whether you want to be involved in the day-to-day activities or not, is invaluable.

The club offers four tiers, and a membership is good from Sept. 1 to Aug. 31 of the next year:

$125 — Business membership (includes a Wolf banner)

$75 — Family membership

$50 — Individual membership

$25 — Wolf Backer

The Individual, Family, and Business levels also include signage acknowledging you in the entrance way to the CHS gym.

Of course, you can also make special monetary gifts and donations, if you’re feeling especially flush with Wolf pride.

See, you can already feel that warm glow in your chest developing.

As your child steps up, so can you.

With a new school year bearing down, the Coupeville Booster Club is kicking into gear, and the hunt is on for new club members.

In particular, club veterans are hoping to attract the parents of Wolf freshmen.

If you have a son or daughter in the CHS Class of 2022, now would be the perfect time to join the booster club and help it grow as your child begins their path through their high school days.

Depending on how much time or desire you have, you can do a little or a lot.

Want to eventually be the Club President? Now’s the time to plot your rise.

Want to just help out a bit behind the scenes, as the boosters support Wolf athletes and coaches throughout the school year? That works as well.

If you want to get a feel for what the Booster Club does, the first meeting of the new year goes down this coming Monday, Aug. 27.

It’s at 6 PM in the health room, which is the room right outside the CHS gym. Step inside the front doors of the gym, and bam, it’s on your left.

If you have any questions, or want to get the ball rolling right away, contact Wendi Hilborn at wendihilborn@gmail.com.
