Several of the team members of the Ballard High School football team were present to take part in the town celebration, “Tailgate Tuesday,” in Slater.


The Cy-Hawk trophy is a traveling trophy that the winning team keeps at their respective university after the annual Iowa-ISU football game. Shown is a hopeful ISU fan admiring the trophy at RV TV celebra


It is said that there are many golf carts that tour around Slater on a daily basis. Thus, the Community Club invited golf cart owners to attend the “Tailgate Tuesday” activities in a friendly competition of golf carts.


Friends became physical as they proudly wore their favorite team’s colors at RVTV. These four young men, all friends with each other, horse around while playing a game of corn bag toss. Shown left to right (on top) are Jake Oldenkamp and Blakely Carlson and lower is Karsten Bernholtz and Jameson Kaiser.


The Slater Community Club hosted the RVTV to Slater and along with that came the gorilla on his Segway, taking time to make one of the Slater residents feel welcome.


The Slater Public Library helped kids make either an Iowa or an Iowa State flag at RVTV last week. Shown is Jennifer Gogerty, library director; Brayden Snyder and his little brother; and Blake Brendeland.


It was a divided house, or we should say wagon, in this family. Sisters, one in Iowa State colors and one in Iowa colors, enjoyed the evening festivities.


Sportscaster John Sears, from TV 13, drew winning names for door prizes at “Tailgate Tuesday.”


Ed Wilson, chief meterologist from News 13, was on hand to visit with those attending the RVTV celebration. Wilson did the weather reports from Slater on Tuesday.


The kids parade, a favorite part of “Tailgate Tuesday” – RVTV was a huge success. Children of all ages decorated their bikes and wagons in their school colors for the event.
