Several members of graduating classes from Blytheville High School will be among those who will meet to grill and cook prior to Homecoming right outside Blytheville Middle School. Pregame ceremonies will begin Friday at 6:30 p.m., and the Greene County Tech Golden Eagles and Chickasaws will then square off in what will be a critical AAAAA-East game afterwards.

Any persons interested in tailgating may begin marking (chalk, small stakes, etc.) where they want to set up on the grassy area between the Middle School and 6th Street at 1 p.m. Persons may mark in the grassy area only, not on the parking lot or any area with concrete. No tents, barbecue grills or other items may be placed until after 4 p.m.

Tailgating activities may begin within the grassy area between the BMS main building and 6th Street, the sidewalk and under the awnings. Tailgating activities will not be permitted in the parking lot. Parking spaces will be available in the main parking lot (6th Street entrance), and overflow parking will be available in the parking lots located around the BHS Boys' Gym.

Restroom facilities will be available to tailgating participants (entrance and exits located on the east side of the BMS main building) until 6:30 p.m., but no tailgating activities will be allowed in front of the BMS doors. The Eagles-Chickasaws game will begin at approximately 7 p.m.
