AMBER MORRIS/FOR THE EXPRESS The SVRCS Marching Band performs in a parade last May, and along with the school’s Music Booster organization, will host a cornhole tournament this Saturday at the Booneville Campground two miles West of Loganton.

LOGANTON — The Sugar Valley Rural Charter School Indoor Color Guard and Music Boosters invite the public to their first cornhole tournament this Saturday, Sept. 24, at the Booneville Campground, two miles west of Loganton, on Campground Road.

“Bags fly” at 11 am with registration at 10 am, and the cost for each team to register is $25. Individuals are $15 each with a blind draw for partners.

Top prize is a set of cornhole boards.

Proceeds from the event will go towards funding the Indoor Guard’s trip to the TIA ACC Championships in Wildwood, NJ in May, and also to cover the costs of new uniforms and other supplies for the marching band.

Indoor colorguard instructor, Kristal Shade, explained the TIA ACC Championship and what they are all about.

“Tournament contests are held year-round throughout a nine state area in the Mid-Atlantic region. Throughout the year, you will find tournament sponsored events for indoor performances and numerous other scholastic, independent, community and organization competitions,” she said. “The Tournament Indoor Association (TIA) provides contests for indoor performing ensembles including percussion, dance, color guard and twirling. Jazz bands also participate during TIA season which is January through May.”

“The SVRCS Indoor Color Guard gets the opportunity to attend by participating in competitions that are held from February through April,” she continued. “Local schools such as Central Mountain, Jersey Shore, Bald Eagle Area and Bellefonte host shows that we participate in as well.”

Music Booster President, Sonya Downing, is proud of the dedication the students have when it comes to being in the band.

“The community really looks forward to seeing the band and color guard perform. These kids work hard and are so proud of their accomplishments. They should get to show it off as much as they can, and the new uniforms they are working towards will help to be able to do that,” Downing said.

Shade agrees.

“Our hope is that the community comes out and enjoys an afternoon of playing cornhole to help out a group of hardworking, talented group of students,” she said.

Tiny’s BBQ from Castenea will be serving pulled pork sandwiches and their famous pulled pork nachos. They will also have a limited amount of their mac and cheese bowls, which is a bowl of homemade macaroni and cheese topped with pulled pork and BBQ sauce.

In addition to the barbecue, there will be a bake sale table with homemade and donated sweets for purchase.

This is a family friendly event, and spectators are welcomed and encouraged. There will be 50/50 drawings and basketball raffles.

No alcohol permitted.
