The Game is On

Well, we went right down to the wire. The last inspection involved a soils conservation sign-off. We were able to get that approval verbally at approximately 2:15 p.m. That allowed just enough time to make an announcement to the student body that the Homecoming football game for tomorrow (Saturday, October 20th) will be at HOME!

The stadium work is not complete. You will see that the track surface stills needs to be completed, the parking lot needs a final coat, the area behind the visitor’s bleachers is not finalized, the railings at the far ends of the home bleachers are still being fabricated, and other details still require the attention of the contractor. Our goal was to be in a position to secure the temporary certification that would allow our athletes to play at home and for our school community to experience a home football game. We achieved that goal.

We plan to play another home game on November 3rd and – it would seem – a playoff game on November 10th. You will continue to see the stadium move toward completion as each of these games is played.

AND – the Woodbury Board of Education invites you to attend tomorrow’s game free of charge. Welcome back home, and enjoy the game!
