Sidney Alumni Basketball Returns
With Teams Playing Sat., Nov. 27

SIDNEY - The annual Sidney Alumni Basketball Night is scheduled for Saturday, Nov 27 at the Sidney High School gym at 6 p.m. Started in 1992, the alumni event ran from 1992-2004, raising money for an annual scholarship to a graduating senior who contributed significantly to the basketball program at Sidney.

This year marks its return after several years of scheduling conflicts. In addition to the "Old Timers" and "Young Guns" doubleheader, the Lady Warrior Alumni will be included for the first time. Each player is asked to bring a maroon shirt and a white or gray shirt (including any old Alumni Game T-shirts or the reversible jersey) as teams will be determined at random. The fee to play is $10 per person with any checks made out to “Sidney Alumni Basketball Association”or "SABA".

Schedule for the day is as follows:
1 - 4 pm: Registration, shootaround, pickup games and shooting contest.
5:30 pm: Warm-ups 6 pm: 1st Half Old Timers (35 and older) Game
6:30 pm: 1st Half Lady Warriors Game
7 pm: 1st Half Young Guns Game
7:30 pm: 2nd Half Old Timers
8 pm: 2nd half Lady Warriors

The Sidney Booster Club will sell refreshments and there will be prizes awarded for the shooting contest and MVPs. Admission to the games is free. A post-game reception for players, alumni and friends will be held at the Clubhouse Restaurant. For more information, contact Greg Davie at 607-563-9799 or e-mail gdavie@stny.rr.com.
