Summer Fun

June 30, 2009 - Seth Staskey
The calendar flips to July Wednesday and with that people are thinking about Fourth of July activities, Jamboree in the Hills, Italian Festival for sure-fire bets for entertainment.

Me however, I am looking ahead to the latter portion of July for the 64th annual Rudy Mumley OVAC All-Star Charity Football Classic. The game is once again slated for Wheeling Island Stadium with a 7:15 p.m. kickoff.

The Ohio squad vs. the West Virginia squad, the McDonald's OVAC Band, the OVAC All-Star Cheerleaders, the Queen of Queens, the OVAC extravaganza has something for everyone. The sports lover, the music lover, the pageant lover there's something for you. While it's great to see our recent high school graduates shine one last time in the Ohio Valley before they depart for their lives and careers, it's also time to donate to charity. Proceeds of the event go to the Shriners Hospital.

The OVAC rosters were announced in last Sunday's edition and now through the month of July, we'll be chonricalling the players and coaches as they gear up for camp and during the week of the game, but we at The Times Leader understand the game's full scope, meaning we'll give you info on the cheerleaders, queens, band, the people behind the scenes. Stick with The Times Leader throughout the OVAC All-Star Game season.

I am leaving in a few short hours for the great state of Oregon to attend one of my best friend's wedding. Yes, he's getting married in Oregon because his fiance's from there originally. So, I will be away from my desk and away from my blog, but check back early next week to see how the trip went and see what's shaking in the sports world.
