Fans attending Garden City Community College basketball games this season can get in on a chance to win $100 or more every time the Broncbusters play a home game.
A new “Buster Bucks” prize drawing series is starting Nov. 1 when the GCCC women’s team takes to the court at 5 p.m. in a home season opener at the Dennis Perryman Athletic Complex with Midland College. Drawings will take place each date thereafter that the Buster men’s or women’s team plays a regular season game at home, with an initial prize of $100.
“Buster Bucks” is sponsored by Barbara Larson of ARC Real Estate, Garden City, and a potential winner will be drawn on each game date among names of all individuals enrolled at GCCC in one credit hour or more, starting with the 2012 fall semester.
When a name is called, that person will have 90 seconds to get to the scorer’s table with a current, valid GCCC photo ID card to claim the prize. If not claimed, the prize pool will grow by $10 at each event. An event, according to GCCC Athletic Activities Director Bob Larson, is defined as a date when either or both the GCCC women’s or men’s basketball team plays a regular season game at home.
The drawing will take place at the men’s game on some dates and the women’s game on others, Larson added. While the women’s first home contest is Nov. 1, the Buster men will play at home for the first time at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 6, hosting the Tabor College JV team. Both teams will play repeatedly thereafter, with home dates throughout November, December, January and February.
“In addition to the excitement of watching our student athletes perform under the leadership of Coach Chappell and Coach Sharp,” Larson said, “our Buster Bucks promotion will add an extra element of anticipation this season, so we hope students and the community will join in coming out to see men’s and women’s Broncbuster basketball.”
