Enumclaw High School Football Car Wash

The Enumclaw High School Football team had their second annual car wash at Art Gamblin Motors Truck Center in Enumclaw.   The car wash was in effort to raise money for the EHS Football players for their upcoming camp at University Puget Sound this summer.   Each player pre-sold tickets for $10 to help pay for their own way to the camp.  Every ticket a EHS Football player sold it went to his own balance towards camp.   We had a huge turn out of family, friends, neighbors, local community members and the occasional passer by who wanted their vehicle washed.

Having the car wash this year at Art Gamblin Motors Truck Center offered a great location for the car wash.   There were two car wash lines in front of the Gamblin Truck Center showroom with 4 stations.   The first station was the wet station where one of our football players operated a hose and got the vehicle wet.   The vehicle then rolled forward to station 2 where linebackers/quarterbacks/receiver/etc turned into a professional car washer.  After being washed the driver would pull up to station 3 which was the rinse station. Then the final station was the dry station.

Coaching did not stop for most the EHS Football coaches as you heard a constant theme, “start from the top and work your way down” or “you missed this spot.”

The car washed was broken down into 4 shifts.   The seniors washed cars from 8:00AM to 10:00AM followed by the Sophomores who washed cars from 10:00AM to 12:00PM.   The Juniors started the afternoon shift which was from 12:00PM to 2:00PM and the incoming freshman had their first taste of High School football by washing cars from 2:00PM to 4:00PM.   For pure numbers of who did the most, I think the Junior class pushed the most vehicles out.   For the best wash job, the incoming Freshman did the best job.

Overall it was a successful day.  The Football team projected that 250 vehicles where washed!  There was a steady flow of 8 vehicles being washed at once, next year we might have to go to 3 lanes.  The players raised over $4,000 to help to pay for their own way to camp!

It was great to see such a huge turn out and to see the support that Enumclaw has for Enumclaw Hornet Football.  I can not wait till the Fall when Hornets make another attempt at the playoffs.
