Show your Pirate Football Pride and the distinction of having a player under your roof. New “Home of Pirate Football Player” yard signs will be available for all CHS High School, CMS Middle School, and Charlestown Little Pirate youth player families this Wednesday from 5:30-6:30 pm, in front of the high school football field entrance. These are double sided yard signs (with the adjacent design) at a cost of $10.00 each. These signs have no dates or years on them so they’ll be good as long as the player continues to play for years to come. Go Pirate Football at all levels in Charlestown!

Pirate Nation traveling to Brownstown Central High School this evening, Friday, August 24th, for the huge MSC football clash between the Pirates and the Braves; should be aware that Elm Street (along the visitor side of the football field and the easiest access to Brownstown High School’s north parking lot) will be closed from 6:30 pm thru game’s end. Pirate Nation is encouraged to park in the North Parking Lot at Brownstown HS, using the routes highlighted in green on the adjacent map (including using High Street to Highview Drive).
According to INDOT, no construction work closures or restrictions exist between Brownstown and Charlestown via I-65 North to Mile Marker 41 (Uniontown), then Indiana 250 west. The route from I-65 to Seymour and west on US 50 to Brownstown is also reporting construction and restriction free.
However as a reminder, construction continues on I-65 between Sellersburg and Memphis; and for those who like to take Indiana 135 north from Salem to Brownstown, there is a bridge construction lane restriction on that route.
