We work with the local vendors from Copperopolis to Arnold to obtain discounts at their stores. We combine these discounts onto a plastic card with BH colors and design. We purchase 1,200 cards that are then sold by the players for $10. Each vendor is asked for a discount of $1.50-$4.00 per use so getting the purchase price back using the card would be reasonably quick.
Participating vendors receive a number of cards to use as they see fit – sell, distribute to employees, whatever the vendor wants to do with them.
The cards are sold in starting the first fall practice. Each player is asked/expected to sell 10 cards, but there they could sell more if they wanted. Players are rewarded for selling cards, there is a ‘money pull’ when the sales are done and the highest sellers get the pulls.
