teddyG3During Friday’s game at Clarksville, the Generals will be hosting their 2nd annual TEDDY TOSS.  The Teddy Toss last year collected over 200 teddy bears for local Kentuckiana children for the holiday season.  The Generals have invited Pirate Nation to participate in this worthy cause.  Anyone who brings a new Teddy Bear donation to the game, will be given a ticket for a free hot dog and drink.  All donated TEDDY bears will be TOSSED out onto the basketball floor, during a designated time of the varsity game.
