Tickets are $15 per person. Following the meal there will be a short highlight film of the years greatest moments and a few words by Coach Jeremy Reed and the Altus Bulldogs. Everyone is invited and welcome to attend.

As a grand finale and final big push to fun the State Championship Rings that are being purchased for the team and coaches, there will be an auction of Altus Bulldog memorabilia and other fantastic items.

There will actual game balls used in the State Championship game that have been signed by the team. There are 50 limited edition prints of the Championship photograph that was taken by David Dickerson Photography. The #1 photo has been done in a 16”x20” print with an autographed mat and has been framed in museum quality glass and framing. The second in the series will be an 11”x14” quality framed photo as well, donated by Christina’s House of Frames. The balance of the 50 photos will be matted and signed and ready for the owner to complete the framing. Other items have also been donated for the auction, and Championship programs, hats and Championship T-shirts will also be available for purchase.
