The Pre-Season is heating up as snow is falling here in Maine. Maine registrations are dominating the field so far, and as such, the AFC team is outpacing the NFC team in both members and donations. Clearly New England Patriot fans are showing up to play! Where are the 49ers and Falcons fans? (Full disclosure…this author grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area during the Joe Montana years…Go Niners!)
On the school scoreboard, Auburn Middle School has been leading for the past week, but new entrant Sacopee Valley Middle School came storming onto the field today with a huge first day of 79,930 grains of rice donated. They still trail Auburn, leading with 109,930 grains donated. Across the Androscoggin river, Lewiston Middle School is still making their presence known. Will they rise up and show their Twin City rival that they are ready to play?
The first team from Wisconsin, the Verona Area School District has also entered the challenge. Welcome to our friends from Wisconsin!
All teams are reminded that pre-season doesn’t count toward the RiceBowl Challenge. All totals will be reset starting Monday, January 21, 2013 when the Challenge begins. Train hard! Practice every day!
