MONTEREY, CA – October 27, 2015 – The Monterey Peninsula College Foundation’s Booster Club’s chicken drop is beak, errr… back! The Booster Club’s second annual fund-raising Rubber Chicken Drop will be at halftime of the home football game vs. Gavilan College on Saturday night, November 7 at the MPC Stadium; game time 6pm, halftime approximately 7:15pm.

Once again this year, floating 100-200 feet above the field at halftime, Beccie Michael, Executive Director of the MPC Foundation, will drop three rubber chickens to the virtual grid on the field. This year, the chickens will be illuminated for easy bird spotting.

“We were able to generate a considerable amount of excitement for our newly created Booster Club last year during our Rubber Chicken Drop, as well as raise several thousand dollars for our MPC Athletic Programs,” states Beccie Michael, “this year, we want to keep the momentum going and capitalize on our very competitive football season!”

Tickets are $100 and limited to 100. They are still available by calling the MPC Foundation at 655-5507; however, they will sell out. Three prizes will be awarded — $1,000 for first, $500 for second, and $250 for third.

The measuring field team will include former NFL receiver and MPC Hall of Famer member Ron Johnson, MPC Trustee Charles Brown, and Booster Committee Chair Birt Johnson. Johnson and Booster Committee member Lewis Leader are the event co-chairs. MPC Athletic Director Lyndon Monterey Peninsula College Foundation Schutzler will coordinate the drop. The winners will be announced by MPC Superintendent/President Dr. Walter Tribley and introduced if on hand, but winners need not be present to win.

A virtual grid between the 25-yard lines and running sideline to sideline will be simulated on the field and consist of 100 randomly numbered squares. Each ticket stub has a number from 1 through 100. Each location where a rubber chicken lands will be measured and plotted based on the virtual grid, and the numbers of those squares will determine the three prize winners. Money raised will go to support Monterey Peninsula College athletic programs.
