BHSU will sell individual
reserved seating for Yellow Jacket fans - top
Yellow Jacket Foundation at Black Hills State University is offering
reserved seating, complete with a padded chair-back seat, for football
and basketball games.
“We are confident that having a comfortable chair in place when
they arrive will make attending Yellow Jacket athletic events more
enjoyable for our fans,” said Bud Synhorst, BHSU athletic director. He
noted that the chairs will be available for football games at a cost of
$50, for basketball games at a cost of $100 or for both sports at a
discounted cost of $125.
Prior to the beginning of the season, BHSU will host a choose-a-seat
night when fans will choose the location of their seats at Lyle Hare
Stadium as well as in the Young Center gymnasium. The reserved seats
will then be set in the proper place before each home game.
The reserved seating designation does not include cost of admission
to the games. Donors who have contributed to the Yellow Jacket
Foundation will still receive the usual admission passes and now will
also have the option of reserving seating with a padded back-rest chair.
For more information or to see a sample of the chairs, contact the
athletic department at 642-6882.
