Friendly reminder, the Vail Vikings is an all volunteer organization.  All Board Members, Coaches, Business Managers, and others are giving their time to support the kids.  While things will not always go as planned, we promise to address issues if they arise, and remedy to the best interest of the kids. 

Raffle tickets Due August 18th, Drawing is August 25th

Please be sure to receive and sell your raffle tickets.  Each participant is responsible for selling 10 tickets at $10 each.  This is the primary fundraiser of the year and the proceeds support Vail Vikings use of the Cienega fields and providing the best equipment possible.   

The Vail Vikings family depend on everyone doing their part, and we need all the tickets sold.
