Flight ClubAn old proverb states, “It takes an entire village to raise a student section.” Well, maybe not exactly, but all can agree that is definitely true in Charlotte.
The student section at Charlotte High School, named the Flight Club, is one of the fastest growing clubs at CHS and undoubtedly the most spirited. Its goal is to support all CHS athletes and spread Oriole Pride throughout the school and the Charlotte community as a whole. Members are forever grateful for everything the community has done and Flight Club wouldn’t be nearly as successful without the community’s unwavering support.
In December, Flight Club made a video (which can be viewed at charlottenet.org) and entered it into a competition, called “Battle Of The Fans” through the Michigan High School Athletic Association (MHSAA). From that video, the Flight Club was selected as one of five finalists, but it’s not done yet.
On Feb. 12, MHSAA representatives will be visiting Charlotte’s Dome of Doom to see Flight Club in action. As students and members of this proud community, the Club is asking the community to join in the fun and participate in the chance to be named the best student fans in Michigan.
The festivities on Feb. 12 will start at 4:30 p.m. when all students are invited to a cookout in the high school lobby ahead of the evening basketball games. The varsity girls play at 6 p.m. and the varsity boys at 7:30 p.m. Those attending the game are asked to wear orange to the girls’ game and black for the boys’ game. So plan for two shirts.
The Flight Club will also be collecting bottled water to send to the students in Flint suffering from contaminated water. Any students that bring a gallon or package of waters and their student ID will receive free admission to the basketball games. The Flight Club encourages all of the community to bring a donation as well. Not only does Charlotte High School have the most spirited fans, but the most generous.
The evening will be a fun- filled night for all. The Flight Club hopes to see you there to support the CHS basketball teams and contribute to its goal of becoming the best fans in Michigan. Go Orioles! Oriole Pride!
