There was a great environment surrounding the Mustang Booster Club and SMSU Athletics last weekend out at Shooter's Sporting Clays for the Mustang Shootout and at the Regional Event Center with tailgating, the Shrine Bowl and Military Appreciation Day all at the Mustang Football game. Thank you to all the booster club members and Mustang fans for coming out and helping to make it an incredible collegiate football atmosphere.
Every Wednesday, the Mustang Booster Club hosts a luncheon at Shay's in the Best Western Marshall Inn at 12:00 PM. You do not have to be a booster club member to attend the luncheon. Each week, you have the opportunity to hear from our head coaches as they give an update on the previous week's competitions and update the group on the upcoming contests. I would like to encourage anyone that has been thinking about coming out to give it a try. Please consider this as an invitation to join us every Wednesday at Shay's for the Mustang Booster Club Luncheons.
The 2009 Smokefest will be held on Friday and Saturday at the Regional Event Center on the campus of Southwest Minnesota State.
The festivities begin on Friday night with the "Mustang Trail Street Dance" featuring food, beverage garden and music by Brandon Scott Sellner. The BBQ gates open at 6:00 pm with music starting at 7:00 pm and concluding at 11:00 pm.
On Saturday, the SMSU Smokefest will continue from 8:00 am.to 4:00 pm with the BBQ gates opening at 10:00 am Music by the Tim Sigler Band will start at 10:30 am followed by the SMSU football game versus Upper Iowa starting at 1:00 pm.
There will be four vendors featuring bbq favorites and great sides. The SMSU Athletic Department will be selling food and beverage tickets at the gates in lots of 5, 10, and 20 tickets. Each ticket has a one dollar food and beverage value and can be redeemed at the four different vendor stations located right off Mustang Trail. I look forward to seeing everyone out at the Mustang Trail Street Dance Friday night and Saturday for Mustang Football at 1:00 pm.
Good luck to all of our Mustang Teams this weekend. Go Mustangs!
