New tailgate event at High School Football game, Friday

By on Wed, September 30, 2009

A new pre-game tailgate party will launch at the Friday, October 2 football game at Half Moon Bay High School.

The party will feature barbeque with water and snacks, face painting supported by the High School’s Art Department, pictures taken with the "Cougie" mascot, and music. The party is sponsored by the high school’s Associated Student Council and is free to everyone.

The event is called the "Smokehouse Game," referring to the barbeque. It will be held in the High School’s parking lot from 5-6 PM. The varsity football game against El Camino follows immediately at 6 PM, and all community members at the Smokehouse event are invited to attend. Tickets for the game are $5 at the gate.

"I love having community spirit at our football games, and I hope this event will boost that," said Student Council Executive Board Member, Chris Probert.

"We haven’t done this before and we’re very enthusiastic to see the community turnout at our pre-game party," said Rob Lawrence, the High School’s Activities Director and ASB Advisor.
