My fellow Browns Backers,

Our club officers are working really hard to grow the club, offer great prizes for raffles and working on several charity functions and ideas. I know this has been a rough start to our season being 2 and 4 is not great, but our boys have hung in and had chances to win most of our games. We still have high hopes for a great season and several more wins. I was on WEWS news following the game in B-More last week and showed them the fun we have cheering on our Brownies.

We are doing OK with our charity funds, but would like to see it grow. We are attempting to do a fund raiser during our bye week at The Tilted Kilt in White marsh. We have the chance to raise a lot of funds if we can pull this event off. I am attempting to get raffle items from The Browns, Ravens, Orioles and Indians. If anyone has a lead, contact or idea for items we could raffle off please let us know. We plan to do a 50/50 and are working on a way to get some proceeds from sales during the event. 100% of all funds raised will be going to BARCS and Navy/Marine Corps Relief Society, our 2 charities this season.

Raffle sales have been down this year for some reason this season. I have attempted to purchase items you all would like to win, but these items cost. I have been footing the bill from my pocket so we can have great items. I can no longer continue to do this. I have always spent 100% of our sales on items for the following weeks game. If we continue on this current path, I will no longer be able to raffle jerseys off each week, I love being a Browns fan behind enemy lines and I want our club to grow and prosper as well. If there are items you would rather see on the table besides the jersey each week, let us know. We have been rated in the top 5 clubs with Browns Backers Worldwide and I want to see this continue. We are true fans to our team and we need everyone to come out and support and represent our Browns.

In closing, I want to thank everyone for being a member and showing your pride in our team. Be sure to keep up with Facebook and my emails. Hope to see everyone on Sunday at Glory Days Grill.

My Fellow Browns Backers,

Today our Browns are in San Diego to play the Chargers. Game starts at 4:05 PM ET. We are ready for another win and we will be 2-2, tied with Steelers. Come out, enjoy the game and have a great time. Lots of raffle prizes to win.

Next Saturday, October 10 from 5-9 PM is the Backers Bash. So far we are doing OK, but not too many have responded to the Facebook event. Please do so. I would like to have 100 + show up. The event is free, but the buffet is well worth the cost. Please see an officer today at the game if interested, or go to to pay via PayPal. A lot of planning and time has gone into the event and we will have a great time. Hanford Dixon will be on site for photos and autographs and maybe a Q&A session. We have extra seating for the event. Also, Baltimore City Club has a tailgate arranged for game day. Information is posted on Facebook, so if you are going to the game, check it out and attend their event as well.

This week we had a check cut for the $300 donation to Navy Marine Corps relief form last seasons fund raisers. We will be presenting that in the next couple of weeks. Special Olympics has already been presented with their $300 donation. We are on a good pace to exceed last years donations and are supporting again Navy Marine Corps Relief and a new charity called BARCS. The animal shelter in the area is large and needs our help. Sow up and participate in the 50/50 drawing each week, or make a donation. Both need support and we are there to help. The canned food drive is going well, so don’t forget to bring in items for Thanksgiving donation. We will start a toy drive the Sunday after Thanksgiving and are working with the employees of Glory Days on that. Toys will be donated to local Children's hospital. Flyers will be made shortly to advertise the endeavor.

Now its time to get pumped up for today's game. See everyone at 4 for the kickoff.

My Fellow Browns Backers,

Wanted to send an update out as I will be out of town this weekend. This upcoming Sunday, we play the Chargers. The game starts at 4 PM. Patrick, Bruce Doug and Jess will be running the raffles, 50/50 and the canned food donations. Remember that the 50/50 and canned food drive are for charity. This year we will be donating to BARCS, Navy Marine Corps Relief Society and I am still looking for a church or organization to donate food to at Thanksgiving and Christmas. If anyone knows of a good group, please let us know. Sarah is working on a flyer for the toy drive that we will begin collecting for and partnering with Glory Days to donate for Christmas. That will begin the Sunday after Thanksgiving.

The Backers Bash is planned for October 10, 2015 from 5-9 PM and we will be ready for a great weekend of events. Paypal is set up on for payments if you are interested in the buffet option. The facebook page has the event listed and I am asking everyone to go there and RSVP prior to October 8 so we are sure to have enough tables and chairs. Glory Days is adding a large tent for this event and is looks like we will have a great turn out.

The Baltimore City Club has secured a location for the tailgate on the day of the game in Baltimore. Cleveland has posted their flyer for that event on the portal and it looks real good. If you are going to the game, it appears this would be well worth the money to tailgate somewhere where it will be just Browns Fans.

Our numbers on the portal are growing, so if you haven’t done so, please go to the Browns portal and register. We should be around 80+ members, but only show 40+.

I hope everyone has a great week and you come out and enjoy the game on Sunday, and we get our second WIN. I will get more information from Cleveland about the bash and will send an update as soon as I get it.
