SDSM& T ATHLETICS CELEBRATES NEW YEAR WITH
KICK- OFF EXTRAVAGANZA!
The First Annual Hardrocker Kick- Off Extravaganza will be held Saturday, September 11, 1999 to celebrate the beginning of an exciting athletic year at SDSM& T. The Extravaganza will be held before the first home football game vs Concordia University which is scheduled to begin at 1: 00 pm.
“ We decided that our school spirit needed a shot in the arm, so several offices and organizations got together to try and jump start some interest in Hardrocker Athletics,” said Michelle Howell, Director of the Surbeck Center and Student Activities. “ I’m very excited by the generous response of so many people and look forward to having a great event!”
A tailgate picnic will begin at 11: 00 am at a cost of $ 4, or free to students with their SDSM& T Meal Plan and free to Hardrocker Club Members with a valid pass.
Highlighting the pre- game festivities will be a dunk- tank, and football toss. Possible dunkees for the dunk tank include Dr. Richard Gowen, President of SDSM& T; Dr. Doug Lange, Vice President of Student Affairs and Dean of Students; Art Alleger, Director of Residence Life; and Chuck Cox, Student Association President.
At halftime a “ Dash for Cash” will take place with $ 400 in various denominations hidden in Easter Eggs. As students arrive to the game they will be given a raffle ticket, those wearing a beanie or senior hat will get two tickets. During halftime two numbers will be drawn and those two students will have the opportunity to grab as many eggs as they can - and keep the money!
Don’t miss the Kick- Off Extravaganza at the School of Mines - See you there!
