Lilies of the Field

Blogger's Note: This is NOT Sally, but just some random cow to give you an idea of what we're talking about here. The rules of the International Cow Chip Bingo Federation prohibit the sharing of any participating bovine up to 30 days before the big drop.
Flags, female football and closely watched cow poop.

Who says Pottstown doesn't know how to have a good time?

And best of all, it's going to raise money too.

"But wait Digital Notebook," you say with breathless excitement.

"How can I experience these wonderful things? Will I have to drive far? Is it Black Tie? With beer be served?"



And nope.

If you're free this tomorrow evening, you're in luck. And if you have plans, well, break them.

Because the Pottstown Trojans Touchdown Club's Fifth Annual Cow Chip event starts at 4:30 p.m. sharp and if you're not there, you lose out on the chance to win $1,000.

Yeah, you read that right -- "Cow Chip."

When the spirit moves Sally,
we'll have a winner.
Think about it. When was the last time where a cow did its business mattered this much?

Better yet, when was the last time it earned you $1,000?

Well that's what's at stake when old bovine Sally is led onto the field.

A grid has been prepared and the deeds to just one of the squares goes cheap -- only 20 bucks!

Where ever Sally finally lightens her load, that's who wins.

It's that simple.

Now, knowing that the suspense of such an event might stress the faint of heart, the folks at the Touchdown Club have arranged for lighter fare, which, as I said before, begins at 4:30 p.m. (Gates open at 4 p.m.)

That's when the Pottstown Middle School football program struts its stuff with a game of flag football.

Last year's Powder Puff competitors.
Sally takes center stage at 5 p.m. and she has 30 minutes to let fly and make some lucky deed holder very happy. (Ironically, the property to which the deed belongs is decidedly less happy).

Then, in addition to the pep rally, you can also watch a Powder Puff football event from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.

Hot dogs, hamburgers, fries and drinks will all be for sale and a donation at the gate will help raise money for the American Cancer Society.

Needless to say, this happens at the Pottstown Football field behind the middle school between Franklin and Washington streets.

Come on folks, its good wholesome family entertainment and demonstrates the moral fiber of the entire Pottstown community, not to mention measuring Sally's actual fiber intake....
