Welcome! You've reached the official home of the Northside Falcons

Banner Bird!

Can you find your name?
What is this?

What's Going On Here?

Every year, businesses throughout North Houston and Montgomery County provide financial support for our program and its players. We are extremely fortunate to have these awesome sponsors, and incredibly grateful for their support. In return, we provide excellent advertising through keyword-targeted links on our website. And of course, advertising is 100% tax deductible as a business expense. You can check out most of our business sponsors here.

But we also wanted to recognize the wonderful friends, neighbors, and family members who support our players each year. And while this promotion isn't personally deductable as a charitable contribution (businesses can still deduct), we did try to make it fun.

Enter Banner Bird...

The Northside Falcons Banner Bird is a word cloud which, among other things, bears the names of friends, neighbors, family members (you perhaps?) and businesses that have selected various levels of support for the Falcons season. A hard copy of the bird will appear on an actual banner along with some of our business sponsors. This banner will accompany the varsity team to the Homeschool World Series in Florida in late April / early May. It will also appear at select games and events next season! And of course another, dynamic version of the Banner Bird appears here.

So How Does This Work?

Depending on the level of support, a sponsor's name (or names) will appear larger, or a different color, or multiple times, or all of the above. And for the higher level business sponsors, their names will be links to their websites.

...pause.......Thank You, Sponsors!

All together, this creates a bit of a wacky layout that can be a bit much to take in. But that's part of the fun! For starters, if you're a sponsor (or a friend of one), see if you can find your name. If you chose one of the higher levels of support, it should be pretty easy. However, there may be multiple occurrences in various sizes...so see how many you can find. Otherwise, the task could be a bit more difficult. But perhaps this could help:

Tip #1: Use <CTRL> button and your mouse's scroll wheel to zoom in

Tip #2: Run your mouse over the names and even the smallest will pop up large and readable

So...is that it?

For this year, yes. Next year, we hope to reintroduce a trivia challenge in connection with the Banner Bird. Until then, stay tuned, stay safe, and...

Have fun!
