HAYS, KS -- Fort Hays State University crowd participation at Tiger home games and TailGreat this season should be enhanced through two competitions.
TailGreat, the pre-game football party on Sept. 15, will host Hays Area Chamber of Commerce sponsored competitions for the Spirit Award and Business Bingo.
Spirit Award competitors can be either local businesses or FHSU student organizations. These teams will compete at TailGreat by rousing school spirit from the crowd for Tiger football. The competitions will start at 5 p.m. outside Lewis Field and will be judged by the FHSU Cheer Squad.
Business Bingo winners will be announced throughout the day. Twenty-four prizes, in the form of gift certificates valued at $25 or more, to local businesses, will be distributed to bingo winners. Individuals who fill out their entire bingo card by visiting participating businesses will be entered into the drawing.
Cards for bingo and further information can be obtained at Students Affairs in Sheridan Hall, room 208. Persons interested in competing for the Spirit Award should contact the Hays Area Chamber of Commerce at (785) 628-8201.
