Advertise in the Spearfish Optimists Club Football Books

Advertising is currently being sold for the Spearfish Optimists Club Football Books! The Spearfish Optimists Club is working to put together the fall 2019-2020 Football Books. This is one of our larger fundraisers, with the proceeds going toward our annual grants to youth-based organizations in Spearfish and the surrounding communities. If you are a local business and would like to advertise your business, please contact the Spearfish Optimists. Last year, more than 1,300 football books were sold/distributed.

The follow are the ad dimensions and prices:

  • Full Page Ad, $75, 3 ¾ inch by 4 ¾ inch
  • 2/3 Page Ad, $50, 3 ¾ inach by 3 1/8 inch
  • 1/3 Page Ad, $25, 3 ¾ inch by just over 1 ½ inch (typical business card size


The 2019-2020 Football Books will be on sale early fall. Each book is $10.00 and goes towards our grants for area youth.  The books have more than double their value in coupons from local businesses.


How they work:

  • All proceeds go to various community youth programs and charitable needs.
  • The Optimists keep records of all contest booklets, and we will mail the winners their prize.
  • In each booklet there is a page for each payoff game and the Superbowl.  Each booklet plays in the final score of every playoff game and the first three quarter scores and the final score of the Superbowl.  Each booklet has fourteen chances to win.
  • In each game, write the name of each team correctly, either the home or visitors.  Use the last digit in each team’s score.  For example, if Denver is the home team and Kansas City is the visitor, and the final score is Denver 37 and Kansas City 29, then the numbers for that game would be Home 7, Visitors 9.  Now, find the number on that game’s page in the box where the #7 Home column and the #9 Visitors row intersect.  That number is 84.  If the booklet number on the cover matches that 84 then your booklet is a winner, and you should expect payment from the Optimists in a few days.  (See below for example)
  • For the Superbowl, follow the same procedure for the score at the end of each of the first three quarters and final score.
