The 43rd annual Tompkins County Sports Council Football Luncheons will begin on Thursday, Sept. 12.

The weekly luncheons will commence at 11:45 a.m. each Thursday through Nov. 14, at the Clarion (formerly the Ramada), 2310 N. Triphammer Road. The cost is $125 for the 10 Thursdays.

Each week the head football coaches at Ithaca High School, Ithaca College and Cornell University will discuss the previous week's games, and give a scouting report on the future opponent.

Head football coaches at other Tompkins County high schools will make guest appearances throughout the fall. Various winter sport coaches will also make guest visits.

The Tompkins County Sports Council is a not-for-profit organization. All money available at the end of the fall season, after expenses, goes to the high school football programs in Tompkins County.

You have the option of obtaining your tickets by credit card by calling Becky at the Clarion by phone at (607) 257-3100; or by check or cash from members of the Sports Council Committee: Mike Welch, chair; Jeremy Hartigan; Sally Hoyt; Justin Lutes; Mark Kreydt; David Moore; John Perko; Bob Slocum; and Dave Wohlhueter.
