Football "Spring Fan Fest" is Sunday, April 18
PUEBLO, Colo. (Apr. 12, 2010) - The Colorado State University-Pueblo football fans are invited to attend the second annual ThunderWolves Spring Fan Fest, Sunday, April 18, at the Neta and Eddie DeRose ThunderBowl on the campus of Colorado State University- Pueblo.
The Spring Fan Fest is a community engagement event developed by the CSU-Pueblo Department of Athletics to offering tailgating, free parking, the “Stretch with the Wolves” program, and the annual CSU-Pueblo Red/Blue intra squad game.
The Spring Fan Fest will begin at 11 a.m. when the parking lot opens for tailgating. Hot 95.5 FM radio will be doing a live remote broadcast from the party and Pepsi will be giving away free samples.
At 2 p.m., the free "Stretch with the Wolves" program kicks off, similar to the CSU-Pueblo ThunderPup Clinics offered by all other CSU-Pueblo sports. Kids in grades Kindergarten through 8th grade will be allowed on the field for a pre-game stretch session with the ThunderWolves players. For an additional five dollar fee, participants can also purchase a "ThunderPup Club" T-shirt and receive discount coupons to Southern Colorado Wendy's locations.
The Spring Football Game will kick off at 2:30 p.m. when the "Red Team", coached by former CSU-Pueblo basketball player, Steve Shirley, will take on the "Blue Team," coached by former CSU-Pueblo golfer, Dave Vecchio, in an offense-versus-defense intrasquad contest. The game will serve as a preview of the 2010 ThunderWolf football roster.
The cost to attend the event will be a minimum $1 donation, with proceeds benefitting the CSU-Pueblo Student Athletes' Advisory Committee and Make-A-Wish Foundation. CSU-Pueblo students and children ages six and under will be admitted free, though donations will be accepted.
