|TEAM ROSTER. Several organizations are working together to bring the Tailgate to Touchdowns to Community Field Aug. 30.
They include: (front from left): Sara Reynolds, owner of Jimmy’s BBQ, Laura Deehr and Kelly Pridemore, Carrollton Future Farmers of America (FFA) instructors, and Henry Moore, Carrollton Farmer’s Exchange.
Standing behind are (from left): Mark Spears, Carrollton Schools Athletic Director, Grant Fair, Project Reach director at Camp Muskingum FFA Camp, Bill Findley, president of Carroll County Farm Bureau, and Wendy Davis, Carrollton Athletic office and Carroll County Farm Bureau.
Fall brings thoughts of colorful leaves, cooler days, and football.
Think football and you think of Carrollton Warriors and tailgating.
So, it’s logical the Carroll County Farm Bureau would host its Tailgate to Touchdowns event at a Warrior football game.
The event is scheduled for Aug. 30 from 5-6:30 p.m. at Community Field.
For a $2 donation, “tailgaters” will receive a pork sandwich, chips, watermelon, string cheese, and a drink. Along with music, corn hole boards will be set up for pleasure and competition.
Two sets of corn hole boards will be raffled off prior to the start of the football game. The sets are camouflage and orange and were donated by Kim Davis Insurance and Carroll County Farm Bureau. To be eligible to win a set, participants will receive four chances for $1 donation to land a bag through the hole. Names of those who “score” will be entered into a drawing and two winners chosen.
Other activities will revolve around a “Duck Dynasty” theme. Groups will participate in various competitions. The winning group will receive a hi-ropes package from FFA Camp Muskingum.
Jimmy’s BBQ in Carrollton will prepare and provide the pork which was sponsored by Carrollton Farmer’s Exchange. The Carroll County Dairy Promotion Board donated the string cheese.
The Carrollton Warriors will host East Liverpool at 7 p.m.
All proceeds will benefit Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry. For more information on FHFH, visit www.fhfh.org.
