It's a bit ironic that while CCSUD works so hard to get a message out about the negative effects of alcohol, our Cheshire Football Gridiron Club is hosting a fundraiser at Aqua Turf tomorrow for a Wine & Beer Tasting event.

So the football parents can go out and drink up all they want but their kids better not do the same...yeah, right.

STOP NIT-PICKING - THEY ARE PARENTS AND ADULTS GETTING TOGETHER TO RAISE MONEY FOR THE KIDS. THE PARENTS ARE HOSTING THE TASTING EVENT, NOT THE KIDS. THIS IS NOT A KEGGER IN A BASEMENT.

YOU ARE JUST LOOKING TO CAUSE TROUBLE.

Yeah, you're right...we should separate what the parents do from what the kids do. And I guess it's ok for the parents to down a few at their pregame tailgate parties in the chs parking lot.

Am I the only one that thinks the parents should set an example for their kids?? There's got to be a lot of other ideas for fundraisers.
