This Saturday, Jan. 9, the Van Buren R-1 School district, along with Big 3 Athletics, are hosting Legends of the Hardwood Classic, formerly the Scoreboard Guy Shootout. Our idea with this event is to honor a local to semi-local figure, or a team which had an impact on our area, or will forever be a topic for discussion. This year our honoree is Franklin “Brownie” Smith. His long-time assistant coach, Steve Dodd, will speak before the Van Buren / Gateway game highlighting his amazing career. Admission will be $5.00 for adults and $3.00 for students and we will have a full concession stand. We will have extra restrooms available in the FEMA if needed. Masks are required upon entry and while moving throughout the facility. Once you are in your seat your mask may be removed. 11:00 AM Bunker vs Puxico boys 12:30 PM Puxico vs Van Buren girls 2:00 PM Gateway vs Ellington girls 3:30PM Gateway vs Van Buren boys 5:00 PM South Iron vs Thayer girls 6:30 PM East Carter vs South Iron boys

Halloween 2020! While we may have scaled back our plans, these kids had a blast today! We are very thankful to the staff who helped make this happen and the generous donations that we received to pay for the fun!
