KICKBALL CLASSIC- APRIL 20th-IT'S ON!!!

Recommended Posts

APRIL 20th - SATURDAY - 11:00am Start - PEB FIELD!  It's On!

OK...We are back on!  We will be playing the Spirit Kickball Classic next Saturday, April 20th, on the PEB Field at UNT.  Same start time as originally planned...11:00AM.

For those not sure where the PEB Field is located it is at NORTH TEXAS BLVD and Chestnut St.  You can park in Fouts and just cross the street to the field.  It is that big open field across from the Rec Center.  

So...no stands, so bring a lawn/sports type chair for your use if you are playing and/or watching. If you have extras...sure bring them along...we could use them.  We will set the silent auction up on tables as well as the concession stand.  If you have already signed up to play...you are "good to go"...no need to re-register.  If you are now abailable to play and would like to...just use the following link:

https://one.unt.edu/annual-spirit-classic

If you can't play, but would like to donate, the following link is available:

https://one.unt.edu/annual-spirit-classic-donation-page

So, come on out...got some new donation items from athletics just this week...a UNT barbeque set (really cool spatula, tongs and knife set), a small wooden (with Mean Green logo) wine/beer cooler and TWO HUB CLUB tickets to the 2019 MEAN GREEN opener against ACU on 8/31/19.  So, silent auction is shaping up nicely.  Come on out...check out the game and silent auction.  It is going to be fun and will certainly help out some very deserving Mean Green Student athletes.

ON...and at this point...weather forecast looks great for the 20th...79 degrees and sunny!  Yippeeeeee!!!!  Keeping all fingers and toes crossed.

Rumor has it...we might just have some brisket sandwiches available.  Rumors of this type are very yummy! 

Rumor confirmed! Come grab a brisket Sammy...up for grabs while it lasts for a donation!

Do we have a link to the set of rules we’ll be following?   It’s been a while since I’ve played.

Who's the dick that downvotes everything in this thread?  Just stupid considering this is an event benefiting our students/athletes.

Just a final PSA...our Kickball event will be played tomorrow, April 20th, beginning at 11:00am on the PEB field (not Lovelace Stadium). The PEB field is located at the corner of NTX Blvd and Chestnut St (parking across the street at Fouts Field).

No seating available, so bring a lawn chair or two. Going to be fun...going to have some great brisket available, along with other concession items, some super silent auction items and a 50/50 drawing. Come on out..play, watch, snack, bid on some great items. Gonna be fun...great weather too! 👍👍

Just got word of a new great silent auction item: A Frisco Rough Rider Goodie Bag which includes a soft side cooler, two sippie-type cups AND four 1904 tickets which come with all the food and drink included! Such a deal!

Retail value is $175.00

Thank you Steven King for getting this great auction item for us!

Had a super day to play and a super time playing. And, we made several thousand dollars in support of our UNT Spirit Teams. And, thanks to some of our wonderful supporters we had some great silent auction items...including this Frisco RoughRider Goodie bag being displayed by several of our Cheer team members.

I can truthfully say that a great time was had by all. Maybe the great brisket sandwiches provided by untdadx2 had a big part to play in our having such a good time. I can say from experience...they were delicious!!!

Yep...it will be kickball again for year 10 of the Spirit Classic in 2020!

Yes Sir! Kickball on for next year. We just had too much fun to not do it again for year 10. And, thank you for always supporting! 👍

Well..the numbers are in...we made a tad over $4000.00 for the Spirit Teams! That is pretty darn good all things considered...change of date, change of venue, Saturday before Easter, etc. Many thanks again to our sponsors, players, donors and spectators. You are the ones making it a success for these great student-athletes. 👍👍

By my guess, and after rallying up the last nine years of events, these little one-day events have generated close to $60,000 for UNT student-athletes! Not bad...thanks to YOU! 

See you next year for our second kickball game! 👍👍 AND....year 10!
