Post Turkey Bowl Tailgating

Diana Johnson asked me to pass on an invitation for football families to come to the Monmouth Country Club for an indoor potluck tailgate.

From Diana:

“I know some people may prefer to tailgate at Knox after the Turkey Bowl, but a few parents have gotten together and booked the Monmouth Country Club after the game to do a Turkey Bowl potluck indoor tailgate.  The Country Club is about a mile from campus at 1451 E 3rd Ave, Monmouth, IL 61462.  Football families are invited and asked to bring a dish to share.  While we can bring in our own food, we can’t bring beverages, so beverages will be provided to players (those over 21 should bring an ID if they are interested in something other than soft drinks) and we will have a keg of beer provided for those over 21.  There will also be a cash bar available. 
This is just an option that we wanted to make parents and players aware of if they would like to participate.  If anyone has any questions they can contact Janet Ketchum (ketchum22@gmail.com) or Diana Johnson (djj9123@gmail.com).”

Lake Forest Game Assistance

Coach Braun is asking for our assistance.  Fall Break starts this weekend so most of the students will not be there for the game. So, he is asking that we put out the word and try and get as many folks to the game as possible.

Some parents have suggested that we bring our cowbells to make up for our lack of numbers on Saturday.

“I Gotta Have More Cowbell!”
