The Prairie High football team is auctioning off some prime parking spots as a fundraiser toward purchasing a new set of bleachers. The bleachers sought would be similar to those on the visitor side at Kamiah’s field. Prairie football (and track) coach Ryan Hasselstrom feels that with the beautiful new track it would be nice to have some bleachers that measure up. They would also be great to have when we host some track meets. It’s one thing to stand for a 90 minute to 2 hour football game and another to stand for a 4 hour track meet. All you have to do is check out the photo above. Select the spot you want and place your bid. Bidding will be open from Monday September 4th to Thursday September 7th at 5PM. You can go to the Prairie Football Facebook page and place your bid. Simply but your name and the amount and the spot number you are bidding. Oryou can also call Stacy Anderson at 208-507-1851 or Mandy Bunce at 208-405-8080 to place your bid. Stacy and Mandy will update the bids as often as possible on Facebook to keep everyone informed.
