Playoff game #5 vs. Brock at AT&T Stadium

On to the next round! Here are the details we have so far.

The playoff game will be this THURSDAY at AT&T Stadium in Arlington. We are the “home” team. Game time starts at 7:00pm, however, we will need to get on the road very quickly due to a very large crowd in tow and Dallas traffic.

You will need $5 for meal deal. Looks to be Papa John’s pizza either 3rd quarter or right after the game before we go home. Details still unfolding.

Have your Kemp Band shirt and or a Christmas sweater and jeans…that’s right…no uniforms!

Send-off is at 1:45pm.

School will be released at 2:00pm. We will load the trailer after the send off and school is released.

We are being fed a meal at 3:00pm in the cafeteria by Kemp Alumni and Boosters. Feel free to eat lunch at your normal time as well…be well fed.

As soon as meal is done we will load the buses and leave by 4:00pm (hopefully sooner) to fight traffic and arrive at the stadium by 6:00pm if not earlier.  Kickoff at 7:00pm

We’ll be combining with Brock HS band and our Drill Team to play songs at halftime.

We should arrive back to Kemp late…somewhere around the midnight hour.  We’ll post updates on remind.
