2nd Annual Community SpearIt Challenge

The 2nd Annual "Community SpearIt Challenge" at the University of Louisiana at Monroe is in full swing. This is an opportunity for area businesses to show their support for the ULM Indians.

To participate in the "Community SpearIt Challenge," businesses decorate the outside of their buildings with ULM spirit items to show their excitement for ULM. Ways to decorate include using balloons, flags, banners, changing your track board to a spirit slogan, painting your windows, etc.

The time to participate is Saturdays during home games. If you or your business plans to participate, call Coby Wells at 342-5443.

A winner of the "Community SpearIt Challenge" will be chosen based on a point system. The business earning the highest total points wins. Businesses will be judged 4 hours before kickoff of home games.

The winner will receive a traveling plaque with the business's name that can be proudly displayed in their business for a year. The winner will also receive 4 season tickets for the 2005 season and an autographed football signed by the 2004 team and coaching staff. The winners will be announced and presented their awards at the last home game on November 20.

The next chance to participate is this Saturday, November 6, when ULM plays Utah State at a home game at 6:30 p.m. The next and final chance to participate will be at the last home game of the season, Saturday, November 20 when ULM plays Lafayette at 6:30 p.m.
