---- — UNH cheerleaders lead clinic Sept. 29

DURHAM — The University of New Hampshire cheerleading team will host the fifth annual fall youth cheerleading clinic on Saturday, Sept. 29.

Participants will have the opportunity to learn cheerleading fundamentals, including chants, a cheer and a stunt. Participants will be on the sidelines with the UNH Cheerleaders for the first half of the UNH football game that day against Delaware.

The clinic, which is open to youth in grades 1 through 8, will be held from 9 to 11 a.m. at UNH’s Paul Sweet Oval (indoor track at the Field House) and the UNH football game begins at noon.

The cost of the clinic is $25 and includes a UNH Cheerleading T-shirt and admission to the football game. Participants can also purchase Family/Friend discount tickets ($11 general admission) on game day at the box office.

Groups, sell Fish and Game calendars

CONCORD — If you need a fall fundraiser for your school, club or community group, try selling the 2013 New Hampshire Fish and Wildlife calendar. Sales benefit your group at the same time they help support the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department’s work conserving wildlife and wild places.

This fundraiser offers local groups a great profit margin — your organization makes $4.95 on each calendar sold — and there’s no risk for you, because calendars are pre-sold.

Last year, more than 50 local groups took part in the calendar fundraiser. The all-new 2013 New Hampshire Fish and Wildlife Calendar retails for $9.95. It’s an attractive local product showcasing professional photographs of a range of New Hampshire wildlife. Outdoor enthusiasts will appreciate the wildlife watching tips, plus handy hunting, fishing and snowmobile season dates.
