8-man football team seeks homecoming opponent

Riverside 8-man football is in dire need of scheduling a deaf school for
our Homecoming next fall which will be on either Friday night or Saturday
night, Oct. 3rd or 4th.  We will also host Spike Out tournament (will have
both Div. 1 and Div. 2, up to 6-8 teams each) here that weekend so you may
bring your VB team along to make your trip worthwhile.

Please contact JJ Bailey, Athletic Director, jbailey@csdr-cde.ca.gov as
soon as possible.
