The undefeated Grove Ridgerunners football team is traveling to Bixby this Saturday for the 4A semi-final game. GHS is taking on the Bishop McGuinness Fighting Irish in a 1:30 PM kickoff.

Grand Savings Bank is inviting fans to arrive to the Bixby HS football field by 10:50 AM this Saturday so that we can all welcome the football team bus, which is scheduled to arrive at 11AM.

To reward all fans for their early arrival, Grand Savings Bank will be hosting a free cookout in the parking lot beginning at 11 AM and running through to 12:30 PM. There’ll be plenty of free drinks, hamburgers, and chips on hand for all Ridgerunner fans!

Grove has been designated the “home” team for the Saturday battle and that means we’ll get the press box-side stadium seating.

The drive from Grove to the stadium will take about 1 hour and 45 minutes.

For more information about the cookout contact Doug Londagin with the Touchdown Club at 244-6363.
