Time to ‘Dress the Dawg’
Those trying to follow the ticket sales progress of the first-ever Bulldog Bash will only have to take a drive past The Lodge on U.S. Highway 56 to see how sales are going. A 4- x 8-foot billboard featuring a Bulldog football player and an accompanying sales scale were revealed this week as the "Dress the Dawg" sign was put in place.
The Bash is designed as a citywide tailgate party to help raise $15,000 to assist the Baldwin school district with "start-up" expenses for junior high football. As tickets to the Bash are sold, sections of the football player will be "dressed" (colored in.) There needs to be 400 tickets sold to completely "Dress the Dawg."
Sales figures will be updated each Monday by the Bash sales "captains" at the weekly Bulldog Bash meeting. Sales captains are Ted Madl, Mike Berg, Dennis Mills, Scott Hall, Gerald Cullumber, Brian Orloff and Lew Ruona.
Anyone interested in purchasing a Bash ticket can buy one from any of the "captains" or any of the "official" Bash ticket outlets (Santa Fe Market, The Lodge and Walt's Pizza.) Tickets are $50/family, regardless of size and will get an entire family into the Bash and the Baldwin High School football opener against Prairie View.
The Bash is set to begin at 5 p.m. Friday, Sept. 1 in the west parking lot of Liston Stadium with the Bulldogs kicking off against Prairie View at 7 p.m.
