Ryburn Motor Company and Commercial Bank are partnering with the University of Arkansas at Monticello for the fifth consecutive year to host the UAM Sports Fan Day set for Saturday, Aug. 26 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. on the lot at Ryburn Motors on Highway 425 South in Monticello.
Coaches, student-athletes and staff from all of UAM’s intercollegiate teams, as well as the UAM cheerleaders and mascots, will participate in the event. Fan Day is open to the public at no charge.
Fans and members of the media are encouraged to stop by the dealership to visit with representatives of the UAM Athletics Department about the 2017-18 sports seasons, which get underway in less than a month. There will be picture opportunities, as well as free food and drinks. There will also be giveaways, games and activities for all attendees.
“This tradition has become one of the best events on the calendar for our student-athletes and coaches,” said UAM Director of Athletics and Head Baseball Coach John Harvey. “We are grateful to Ryburn Motors and Commercial Bank for giving us this opportunity once again to interact with our fans in Monticello and surrounding communities.”
For those not able to attend, the UAM Sports Network will be broadcasting throughout the event interviewing coaches and student-athletes on 93.7 KHBM-FM.
