DO Touchdown Club Taking Signups With the high school football season rapidly approaching, signups are still being taken for the Del Oro High football’s Touchdown Club. For the $125 Touchdown Club membership, a fan will get a ticket to every regular season Del Oro game, a VIP pass, which is available at the gate every week, for access to end-zone seating and the hospitality tent, plus a Touchdown Club t-shirt and the chance for a monthly dining gathering with fellow TD Club members and Del Oro coaches. Fans interested in more information on the Touchdown Club can contact Del Oro after Aug. 2 at 652-7243, extension 1303. In addition to the Touchdown Club, a season ticket program at Del Oro is also off to a good start for the 2011 season. Del Oro is accepting seat reservations for the upcoming 2011 football season. The program is part of a format that began in 2008 to help the school offset the increased cost of athletics. The seating is good for all of Del Oro’s six regular season home games. Playoff games are not included. Packages sell for $150, $100 and $50. For more information on the program and to secure reserved seating, contact Stephanie White at 652-7243, extension 1011. Applications can be found on-line on the Del Oro website. The deadline to sign-up is Sept. 3. Battle at the Capital Golf “Battle at the Capital” football showcase director Mark Soto is beating the drum this week for golfers to sign-up for the kick-off golf tournament that will be played on Monday, Aug. 29, at Lincoln Hills. A full day of activities are planned to help get the Del Oro football week off and running. Soto also noted that the “Battle at the Capital” showcase, three days of football set for Sept. 2 to 4, will have three flyovers with a special jump team that the U.S. Army is flying in from Fort Benning, Ga., called the Silver Wings. This team will be jumping from the back of a Coast Guard C130 as it screams over Del Oro’s stadium from 13,500 feet. For more information, call 532-3514.
