Ryburn Automotive Superstore and Commercial Bank are partnering with the University of Arkansas at Monticello for the third consecutive year to host the UAM Sports Fan Day on August 29 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at Ryburn Automotive on Highway 425 South in Monticello.
Coaches and student-athletes from all of UAM’s intercollegiate athletics teams, as well as cheerleaders and the Boll Weevil mascot, 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 upcoming sports seasons. Picture opportunities will be available, as well as free food and drinks. There will also be giveaways, games and activities for all attendees.
“We are very grateful and fortunate to have such a supportive community here in southeast Arkansas and always look forward to times like this when we can get together and fellowship,” said UAM Athletics Director Chris Ratcliff. “We are also very fortunate to have the support of the folks at Ryburn Auto and Commercial Bank, who do so much to support our university, and specifically our student-athletes and coaches… We hope you can come out to Fan Day. It will be a great time.”
“Everyone willing and able needs to be at this event,” said Ryburn Auto General Manager Ronny Williams. “We love celebrating all things UAM, and we’ve had a blast at this event the past two years. We look forward to growing this into something bigger and better each year.”
For those not able to come to Fan Day, the UAM Sports Network will be on hand throughout the day interviewing coaches and student-athletes from all of UAM’s teams. That broadcast can be heard locally at KHBM-FM 93.7 and online at UAMsports.com.
