The Blue Blazes Drill Team Booster Club and Blue Blazes Director Christie McCullough have come up with a fund raising idea they hope to make an annual event. It’s a dinner and auction night. This year’s event is set for Saturday, September 23. Tickets for $10 are on sale now from Blues Blazes or from their Booster Club members. Ms. McCullough says the ticket will be for dinner and a paddle to use for bidding on silent and live auction items that are being collected now. She says funds raised will help offset costs of the Blue Blazes’ annual Spring Show and a Blue Blazes team trip to New York in January. Ms. McCullough says sign ups for the Blaze Buddies program will be taking place in a couple of weeks. Blaze Buddies will join the Blue Blazes on the field at a football game, will dance at the Spring Show and will correspond with Blue Blazes Drill Team members.
Count the Blue Blazes among those excited about the renovated Gerald Prim Stadium. They practiced on the field Wednesday. Their first performance at home Friday will be a traditional pom pom routine. Ms McCullough says the Blue Blazes performed it last Friday at Sherman and got good response from fans on both sides of the stadium. Ms. McCullough says the Blue Blazes had a wonderful performance last Friday and he adds they will have to work hard to improve on it at home Friday.
