Come Join Reggie At His Birthday Bash


August 22, 2012

NORMAL, Ill. – Illinois State Athletics recently discovered that Reggie Redbird’s birthday is September 5 and thought what better time to celebrate Reggie’s birthday than Saturday, September 1, at 1 p.m., at Hancock Stadium for the Redbird football season opener against Dayton.

All Reggie’s Kids Club members are invited to attend the birthday bash from 11 a.m. until kickoff at 1 p.m. located in the Reggie’s Fun Zone on the North practice field next to Hancock Stadium. Not a member, sign up here for free!

At the bash, Reggie and some of his mascot friends will join Kids Club members, as they enjoy treats and inflatables provided by Fun on the Run. Select members will also have the opportunity to lead the team onto the field with head coach Brock Spack, become an honorary team captain for the day, become a junior reporter, provide announcements over the stadium speakers and more. All game day experiences will be selected by Illinois State Athletics on August 30 and winners will be notified by phone before game day.

With hopes of every member attending, Reggie’s Kids Club members will have the opportunity to claim one free youth ticket to the ISU football vs. Dayton game on Sept. 1. Tickets must be claimed in advance and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Complimentary game tickets will only remain available until 5 p.m., August 31, and will not be available on game day.

In addition to Reggie’s birthday bash, Redbird cheer will host its fall cheer clinic on Sept. 1, from 9 to 11 a.m., located on the infield of the Redbird Track and Field Complex. The clinic is open to Reggie’s Kids Club members only with advance registration. At a cost of $10 per child, attendees will receive a two hour clinic taught by members of the ISU cheer squad, a halftime performance at the ISU vs. Dayton football game and one complimentary game ticket.
