As the football season quickly approaches, the North Tama Football team would like to inform the community about a couple of upcoming events.
The first event will take place on August 7, (the Friday of the Winding Stairs Festival), and will be at the football field West of the school. The North Tama Redhawks will host a seven on seven contest against the Grundy Center Spartans. This contest will wrap up our week of camp, which starts on August 3 at 6 p.m. at the sports complex. The cost of admission to the seven on seven game is a bottle of Gatorade or any other sports drink; these will then be given to the players on road games. The first contest will start at 5 p.m. with the varsity playing, followed by the J.V. at 6 p.m., and concluding with the varsity again at 7 p.m. This is a great opportunity for the community, and alumni returning for the festival, to catch a glimpse of the 2009 Redhawks.
The second event will take place the week of August 10. The football players will "blitz" the town for their annual "Redhawk Card" sales. Traer and surrounding community business people have graciously offered discounts at their place of business and these discounts can be taken advantage of for an entire year. The proceeds will go towards a multi-disc DVD burner for highlight tapes, as well as a blocking sled. If you are not able to purchase a card that week and still want to do so, you may contact Coach Brent Thoren at the school.
