Mercer County Athletic Booster Club is an organization committed to helping Mercer County schools in its athletic programs. The athletic booster club has been a major part of the schoolโ€™s athletic programs in assisting financially. All competitive teams benefit from booster club dollars. Without the financial support provided by the boosters, the athletic programs would look very different.

MCAB would like to thank the City of Aledo for their generous donation to help cover trophy cost, to Cokel's Auto Repair & Welding for donating the 4 bikes to give away, and Brookstone of Aledo for the 2 gift cards that will be given away to the older wrestling divisions.

Also, we will be carrying some stock this spring (and going into next fall.) Most items are from the recent Spring Online order. If you missed it or your items come in and donโ€™t quite fit, we can help you out! As always, we sell stadium blankets and seats as well.

EDIT 3/4/19

Feeling nostalgic on this cold Sunday in March, this year the Mercer County Athletic Boosters will host the 41st annual tournament. We are so grateful to the founders of this tournament and vision they had to provide a fun and competitive local tournament. In it's prime we have had around 400/500 wrestlers, man would the whole building be packed...last years numbers were around 200. In the years of 400/500 wrestlers the tournament would make around $14k, in the past couple years it has been an average of $6K. Money made from this event goes to the "general fund" money used to benefit EVERY JH and HS athlete.

Below is the program or "tab" that volunteers used to run around town getting business to pay for advertising and in turn the Boosters would profit around $1400, as downtown business decreased, the cost of printing increased, and lack of volunteers we decided to stop printing these.

When Chris and I took over organizing Bear Country it was discovered that we had a lot of "left-over" trophies, brackets and shirts, so the last 2 years we have cleaned house and are now trying to think of other ways to generate the income we once had from this tab.

The City of Aledo, continues to graciously donate $1500 and that should cover most all of our trophy expenses from this year.

Brookstone of Aledo has donated 2 of the gift cards that we give away as prices to the older wrestlers.

Special thanks to Cokel's Auto Repair and Welding for purchasing the 4 bicycles we need for prizes.

We will also pay for 4 officials and various concessions expenses. If you are interested in helping in this tournament please send us a message or if you are wanting to donate money you can send to MCAB PO Box 94 Aledo. Please mark the memo with "Bear Country donation." Thank you all for your continued support through this rebuilding year we truly appreciate it.

๐Ÿ’™ ๐Ÿ€ ๐Ÿ’› Order pick up at MCJH tonight! ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ’™

Several of you have been asking about MC socks. These are a couple of different options Iโ€™m considering. (Sorry for the poor picture quality. They were taken off my computer screen.) Anyway, I need your input! Which style do you like better - 1 or 2? Still getting pricing together and Iโ€™d be required to place a minimum order, but it looks like these would run $15/pair. What are everyoneโ€™s thoughts?
