Wheeling To Host 2023 ECHL/SPHL Booster Club Jamboree
July 28th, 29th, & 30th, 2023 (Please See Our Jamboree page for updated information)
It’s official…. It’s our turn to show our pride, love for promoting the sport of hockey, team support systems… and the fact that we are Wild & Wonderful in Almost Heaven West Virginia!! Anyone can attend!
A Note From Wheeling Nailer's Booster President Brenda L. Baldwin
The 20-21 season of game play has come to an end. That just means it is now the beginning….the beginning of a summer of working to prepare for the arrival of our 30th year, the team that will take us through that year, and a schedule that is more diversified than this season’s was…thank heavens!
We already have so much planned for this summer and have talked about adding more so our hockey family can stay connected…..because 4 months is a long time.
I personally want to thank each and every person who has made our club a success, no matter what your role or contribution. It may be that you have showed up for everything…or you have simply sent a message and said “hey, here’s a thought…” Every interaction is important and helps steer the course of our ship. You are appreciated!
Our transportation team will be extremely busy this week. We wish them all safe travels and thank them for their time, efforts, and discretion.
Our housing committee has their work cut out for them. We have a shortened summer break so we will need to work efficiently so the apartments are cleaned and ready for the next group.
Our summer fund raising activities will be starting as well….we are beginning our new fiscal year and needless to say, 20-21 was not up to par. These funds support charities, help us purchase the supplies and necessities for the apartments, and make the Wheeling Nailers a presence in our communities so that we can promote and expand the joy and benefits of hockey.
Our next meeting is Monday June 14. Location TBD Time 7:00pm. If you want to be a part of this fantastic group, please come to the meeting. The more the merrier! We have plenty of love…and by love, I mean work ….to spread around. Seriously though, we would love to have you!
THANK YOU ALL FOR EVERYTHING!
I’ll leave you with this….

IRS DEFINATION OF A BOOSTER CLUB:
A booster club is an organization that is formed to support an associated club, sports team, or organization. The booster club can support this through raising funds or coordinating events.... Booster clubs are not social clubs. Rather, their main purpose is to develop support and raise funds for the support of the team or program at hand. Your Wheeling Nailers Boosters not only supports the team but also the community and Ohio Valley region at large thru their fund raising efforts; IE// Game day, 50/50, bus trips, community events, general donations, etc.. We also are a registered 501-C3 organization. The following is a list of exterior organizations that the Wheeling Nailers Boosters felt compelled to help further their own missions during the season.
