Every child shall be given two ballots to be filled out by their parents or legal guardians and placed in a ballot box. Voting shall be done in an area with as much privacy as possible.
A: COUNTING: The ballots shall be counted by a three-person committee to be determined by the board. None of these should be running for any elected office, however, the current secretary shall be present for official records but not as an official counter of the ballots.
B. EFFECTIVE DATES: Newly elected officers shall begin their duties the following January 1 through December 31 of the next year.
C. NOMINATIONS: Nominations shall be taken for a period of one (1) week; dates are to be determined by the president. If nominees have not been submitted for each position, the President may opt to extend the nomination period for up to one (1) additional week. Nominees must secure ten (10) nominations to be placed on the ballot. Nominees must inform the President as to their personal interest in running for office during the designated nomination period. No write-ins shall be accepted.

Tonight's practice is canceled!
Tomorrow is Jamboree day(8/26) and it is MANDATORY. You MUST be present for weigh in to participate. No showing to jamboree is not an option. NO SHOW = NO PLAY.
Jamboree is hosted by Pigeon Forge and will be held at Pigeon Forge High School.
We are scheduled to begin weighing in our players at 9:30 A.M.
All players should be there no later than 8:30 A.M. in the morning. Please don't try to cut it close. There will be no "do overs" if you are 15 minutes late.
If your child is close to the limit to play a backfield position (75.5 lbs. for Grasscutters, 100.5 lbs for Supers & 125.5 lbs. for Pee Wees) then please remember, whatever they walk into the weigh station with is what they are weighed with. If you dress them in full pads, they can't take anything off once they enter the weigh station. Even if they have a drink in their hand they have to weigh with the drink. All that they are required to have on is their game jersey and a pair of shorts.
All three teams will play an 8:00 minute quarter after weigh in, beginning with the Grasscutters. So bring the complete game uniform to dress into after weigh in.
Everyone has to pay admission at Jamboree. This includes coaches.

If by chance you have not paid your sign up fee it is due by Thursday Aug 10th. Your child cannot go to jamboree if fee is not paid. Please see team mom for a new waiver form that needs to be signed. They have to have 1 for every child for the jamboree also. If you are new to the Broncos and need info or have questions on the jamboree please see team mom or someone at the concession stand.
If you did not pay the opt out fee please come to the concession stand to sign up for home game volunteer duties. See your team mom for chain gang sign ups.
Also remember that the Dandridge Broncos is ran by volunteers. Even all the board members and coaches volunteer to make this a great program. Without volunteers the football program can't run. We are looking to fill 1 spot on the board: Treasurer. We also need a concession manager to work the concession stand at practices and home games. There are sign up sheets in the concession stand to volunteer your time for home games. We are also seeing a lot of extra trash around after practice please remember to pick up trash after practice and not leave it laying around on the ground.
Please anyone that has any questions or if your are just a newbie parent and want extra info please see someone at the concession stand, your team mom, or a football / cheer coach to help answer any questions you might have.
We do practice rain or shine. If it is thundering and lightning we will try to wait it out as long as we can to see if it is going to pass. We will post any cancellations on Facebook, Website, and send a email. Please also remember there has to be an adult at the field at all times with the child practicing.
