by Bennett at Centralia
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. --- It's time once again to tailgate!
For the 11th straight year, a Central Bank/KRCG Tailgate will be coming to a high school near you, including this Friday night prior to the Jefferson City Jays-St. Louis University High clash at Adkins Stadium.
The first tailgate was held Sept. 1 at Helias, and subsequent tailgates be held prior to the Hallsville at California game on Sept. 22, and California at Blair Oaks on Oct. 6. All tailgates run from 5-6:30 p.m. Paying fans will receive a free T-shirt, quarter pound hot dog, Hy-Vee chips and Coke and/or Pepsi products. Fans are advised to arrive early while supplies last.
In the first 10 years, Central Bank has given away more than 53,000 T-shirts and too many hot dogs to count.
