Create ‘Sea of Red’ for Ponies

Capitalizing on the popularity of the “Parting of the Red Sea” performance by the Stillwater Area High School students on homecoming, the Ponies Touchdown Club with help from Eckberg Lammers Law Firm is passing out free red bandanas to the first 400 student fans through the gate for Friday’s game.

The Ponies are hoping to create a “Red Sea” of fans for the section cross-over game against Rosemount, which begins at 7 p.m. All fans are encouraged to join the students by wearing red in a show of support.
