Donkey basketball at Tonasket High School, Feb. 7


TONASKET – Our local drug stores reported to be running low on liniment and pain killers as hearty, local residents (Tonasket Fire Department), community members, Tonasket District staff members, and THS Students prepare to ride real, live donkeys in an upcoming Donkey Basketball Game.

The event will be sponsored by the Tonasket High School Junior Class, with all proceeds to benefit the 2013 THS Prom.

The game will be held at the Tonasket High School Gym, on Thursday, Feb. 7, starting at 7 p.m.

All team players have been training extensively for this monumental event. Team coaches want to be ready, physically and mentally. Rumor has it that teams have had professional rodeo bronc riders come in to give a few tips to team players.

Student (7-12 Grade) advance $6.00; at the door $7.00.
