Good morning, Talawanda! Today is Wednesday October 3rd, 2018

Yesterday, the Talawanda FFA Chapter competed in their first competitions of the year, and were very successful.  The Urban Land evaluation team finished 3rd in the contest of 13 teams. Joseph Copeland finished in 3rd, Matthew Butterfield 8th, Dakota Kiefer 10th, and Austin Lake in 11th out of 67 individuals, and will be our State Judgers.  Other judgers were Olivia Zaenkert in 19th, and Morgan Gillespie in 49th.  This will be the 9th year in a row that we qualified for State in Urban judging.  The Rural Land evaluation team finished in 4th place of 22 teams, with Dalton Schlichter 8th high individual, Austin Weekley 13th, Spencer Crauder 22nd, Kasey Condo 26th, Peyton Weekley 29th, and Hunter Brewer 39th.  All braves finished in the top 36% of the contest.  Good luck to these teams as they have now qualified for the state finals held next Saturday in Eastern Ohio. Go aggies!

Reminder that there will be Braves for the Cure shirts for $12, and bracelets for $1.  They will be for sale during lunches and in Mrs. Gregory’s room all week.  The pink out football game is on October 12th, so make sure to purchase your shirt to support the braves, and help raise money for the side out foundation, and Luna cares.

Attention all Talawanda Hockey Players.  There will be a brief meeting after school Friday in Mr. Tincher’s room 124.  The meeting will only take a few minutes.  If you are unable to make the meeting please see Coach Tincher ASAP.

Freshmen:  Don’t forget to sell candles to your family and friends!  If you sell 12 items, you get a free $20 candle!  The $10 gift card winner is already claimed, but the next 3 students to turn in seller packets will receive $5 worth of candy! Stay tuned for more prizes and keep selling! See Mrs. Sammons for questions!

Best Buddies members:  Our October chapter meeting is this coming Tuesday, October 9 right after school in Mrs. Sammons’ room.  We will have snacks, play a game, and discuss upcoming events and tshirts. See you Tuesday!

Talawanda Social Workers and Success Liaison are looking for volunteers to help organize the clothing closet at Marshall Elementary.  If you would like more information or are interested in this volunteer opportunity, please see Mrs. Workman or Mr. Davie in the guidance office.

Don’t just stuff your recently worn homecoming attire in your closet, never to be seen again!  Donate it!  Success Liaison Mrs. Workman and School Counselor Mrs. Peter are accepting donations of homecoming dresses, dress pants, dress shirts, ties, etc!

Attention Sophomores – PRIDE Day will be tomorrow for students A through J and Friday for students K through Z.  If you have any questions you can see Mrs. Peter in the Guidance office or Mr. Z in room 301.

And now for a revisit to old vines.

Birthdays for today: Andrew Miller turns 16, Spencer Crauder turns 17, Benjamin Fowler turns 17, Krista Snell turns 17, Davis Byrd turns 16,  and Deondre Bothast-Revalee turns 15. Also happy birthday to Mrs. Sammons!

And now for world news and another fake Patty G with sports.

The volleyball team gathered their first home conference win of the year last night with a straight set victory over Mt. Healthy.  Their overall record is now 5-12, and the Braves improve to 3-6 in the SWOC. Next up, they travel to Edgewood for a road match on Thursday. 

The girls soccer team beat Mt. Healthy last night by a score of 9-0 last night at the field in a big win — they are 9-3-1 overall and 6-3-0 in the SWOC.

The boys soccer team ’s game at Mt. Healthy was postponed until today, so they will take on the Owl’s on the road with the varsity kick at 7:30 tonight. 

There are no home games for today, good luck to the boys golf team who plays in sectionals today at Miami Whitewater. That’s where I’m going now.

And that’s our broadcast on this Wednesday. I wish I was Patrick Geshan, but unfortunately I’m not. Thank you so much for watching — and have a great day.
