Craig Elks challenge

others to help team

The Craig Elks Club is challenging other organizations and businesses to help 23 Moffat County High School football players pay for a bus to attend football camp in Wyoming.

This camp helps players fine-tune their skills for next season. The cost to rent the bus is $1,700, which includes the driver and gas. Craig Elks are putting $500 into the pot and challenging others to toss in what they can.

The Elks need the money turned in by Monday. Without the bus, the players will be forced to drive themselves and caravan to Laramie, creating a safety issue.

For more information, call Robin at 824-0323 or 859-4975 and arrange for checks to be picked up. If more money is collected than is needed, it will go to a football fund.
