Project Thank You is Underway
Project Thank You returns! The annual effort to show our appreciation for the football players is back. What’s PTY? It’s a plan to get personal notes from poster to player to say “thank you” for all the effort and sacrifices throughout the season. We’ve sent over 5,00 notes in past years.
As always EVERYBODY is welcome and encouraged to participate — members,
posters, lurkers, everybody.
For those of you who were around last year (or the last few years), you might
recall what Project Thank You is all about. If you don’t recall, or if you’ve
joined the TechSideline.com family since then, please click the link below for
