‘Pig drop’ fundraiser set
The Long County High School football team will hold its first Blue Tide “Pig Drop” Bingo Night on Friday, July 31, at Veterans Field, with a prize of
$1,000 being given out.

The rules of the game are to have a pig penned up on a grid of 200 randomly painted and assigned squares. At 6 p.m., the pig will be released and whoever’s square it decides to “drop” on will be the winner. If the pig’s droppings happen to be on a line between two squares, a line judge will determine which square is deemed the winner.

If the pig has not relieved itself by 10 p.m., the square the pig’s right hoof is in at the cutoff time will be declared the winner.
According to Blue Tide head coach Eric McNair, proceeds will go toward the purchase of items like meals, shirts and other equipment for the football team. Tickets for the contest are $25, with the odds of winning being 1 in 200 with a one-ticket purchase. After the event, the football team will hold its Midnight Madness celebration with its first full-gear practice at 12:01 a.m.
