If you'll notice from the April 11 Shenandoah Board Minutes, they weren't exactly happy to even be hosting the SCAC Golf Tournament last April. Besides more confusion over what they were obligated to provide, the previous administration negotiated a no-cost contract with the SCAC if all teams stayed in Shenandoah Hotels. Regarding the SCAC golf tourney: "Mayor Wheeler asked Mr. Ferebee what the City’s obligations were and read a portion of the letter from the SCAC Commissioner sent to the previous City Administrator that stated, “your offer to pick up all fees associated with the three-day event in lieu of our teams agreeing to stay at designated Shenandoah hotel properties was well received and unanimously supported.” Mr. Ferebee stated that the first time the contracts were seen by Mr. Ferebee were related to the Stagg Bowl. Mr. Ferebee suggested that the contracts be discussed further and then some months later City Council was presented with an increased budget for the Stagg Bowl. He added that he had not seen the contract until recently and that it was signed by the former City Administrator. He added that the current staff had been trying to put on the event and save as much money as possible for the City, but that there are not a lot of options related to the current golf tournament. Mayor Wheeler asked if Mr. Ferebee felt the City was contractually bound. Mr. Ferebee replied that he felt the City was contractually bound. Councilmember Raymaker asked how the City can be protected in the future from this type of thing happening again... "

Estimated budget for SCAC Golf Tourney = $47000. I'm sure they're thrilled with the Stagg Bowl. I'll be at the stadium on Friday night for a big high school game – where they should drawing about 8,000-10,000 fans. You would think they'd be promoting the Stagg Bowl like crazy on the Jumbotron at high school games. I'll be sure to let y'all know when and if I ever see anything promoting the Stagg Bowl. You would think between the Jumbotron at Woodforest Bank Stadium, and the programs which get handed out very week for high school games (4 high schools share the stadium), they should have at least been working on an awareness campaign for some time now. Somehow though, I doubt it.

Shouldn't this topic be renamed to prevent confusion by casual browsers?

Looks like Merle was right.

And he hasn't logged in since April.  Right Pat?  Or does he have a new name??

I went to a high school game at Woodforest Bank Stadium on Friday night. The Woodlands v. Klein Collins for first place in the District: https://www.woodlandsonline.com/vmps/videolisting.cfm?vdoid=3237

They probably had about 8,000 in attendance. Nothing on the Jumbotron about the DIII National Championship game. Nothing in the program. Nothing from the announcer. If someone wants to watch the entire game and see if they even mention it – have at it. Darn good game with D1 talent on both 6A squads. First game The Woodlands loses in District in six years. A separated ankle with broken fibula to help inspire Klein Collins on their last drive of the game.

The penny pinchers from Shenandoah (they purchase video ad space on the Jumbotron to advertise what ... the town?), should at least reach out to The Woodlands High School (which they can walk to), to lock up the band for free at halftime. Arguably the best HS band in the country – at 1:06 on the video. Grand National Champs a few years ago.

A very fine band which placed eighth at last weekend's BOA Super Regional in San Antonio and surprisingly did not qualify as one of the top ten 6A bands for today's state UIL marching finals.   Seventh in the country at last year's BOA grand national championship.  Regardless of the actual positioning, would be a great choice for a Stagg Bowl halftime show.

Just sent an email to the Mayor saying, "do a great job...for TEXAS!"

This happened last night as time ran out in the 2nd round 6A high school playoff game between Cedar Ridge & The Woodlands at Woodforest Bank Stadium. Final score 53-50, The Woodlands.

I still prefer football outdoors, except in northern climes.  I wish that Georgetown would make a bid. Nice 10,000 seat ISD stadium and it's in the deep in the heart of Texas d3 country - Southwestern, UMHB, TLU, and Trinity with Howard Payne and H-SU fairly close as well.

I prefer it outdoors as well.  I wish Orlando would bid again.  That was the best week of covering college football I've ever had.
Been wrong before.  Will be wrong again.
