A lightning storm caused the cancellation of the Bulldog varsity football game set for last Friday, Sept. 26. Homecoming court festivities have been rescheduled to Friday, Oct. 24, before the game against Taylor. BHS art students got creative with their entry in the homecoming parade, held earlier in the week.



Due to thunderstorms and lightning on Friday, Sept. 26, pre-game homecoming festivities were cancelled. Those ceremonies have been rescheduled to Friday, Oct. 24, before the Bulldog Varsity game against the Taylor High Ducks.
The Bandera High School Homecoming Court will be presented at 6:55 pm and the King and Queen will be named at 7 pm on that day. No Parade of Decades will be held.
No makeup game is scheduled due to the cancellation on Friday night.
Patrons and students will be able attend the Bandera Middle School games on Thursday, Oct. 2, at Bulldog Stadium against Tom Moore Middle School from Ingram without charge in lieu of Friday night's cancelled game.
The 7th grade "A" team will play at 5 pm and the 8th grade "A" team will play at 6 pm. These games are the last non-district games played at Bulldog Stadium.
Even though the game on Friday, Sept. 26, was cancelled, the game costs must still be paid due to the agreement negotiated by the University Interscholastic League (UIL) and the Texas Association of Sports Officials (TASO). By state contract, the four required referees are paid a percentage of home game ticket sales. Due to these requirements, no cash ticket refunds are allowable. In order to stay within the requirements of the contract, district games may not be substituted as compensation for a cancelled non-district game.
Bandera High School will begin district play on Friday, Oct. 10 in Fredericksburg against the Billies.
