The Catoosa County News - - COMMENTARY -

Hoops and hi­jinks are com­ing to Ring­gold on Satur­day, March 18, when our very own lo­cal chal­lengers, the Ring­gold Lo­co­mo­tives, take on the Har­lem Am­bas­sadors in a com­edy bas­ket­ball show the whole fam­ily will en­joy. The show starts at 5 p.m. at Ring­gold High School Gym at 29 Tiger Trail.

Event pro­ceeds ben­e­fit the City of Ring­gold and the Down­town Devel­op­ment Au­thor­ity.

“We have scoured the re­gion for skilled – and some­times un­skilled – play­ers to take on the pow­er­ful Am­bas­sadors,” said Down­town Devel­op­ment Au­thor­ity Chair­man Ran­dall Franks. “What our team lacks in skill, they make up for in heart. Buy your tick­ets to­day and you’ll be able to wit­ness how our en­thu­si­as­tic lo­cal tal­ent stacks up against the Am­bas­sadors. It’s go­ing to be match-up we won’t soon for­get.”

“The Ring­gold Lo­co­mo­tives fea­tures Elected Of­fi­cials, Lo­cal Busi­ness Own­ers, Ra­dio D.J.’s and Area Ath­letes…..to name a few.”

The Har­lem Am­bas­sadors’ show fea­tures high-fly­ing slam dunks, daz­zling ball-han­dling tricks, hi­lar­i­ous com­edy, mu­sic, danc­ing, games with kids in the au­di­ence, and free au­to­graphs af­ter the show.

The Har­lem Am­bas­sadors have per­formed more than 2,800 com­edy bas­ket­ball shows as fundrais­ing and com­mu­nity en­ter­tain­ment events for non-profit or­ga­ni­za­tions, the U.S. mil­i­tary and com­mu­nity ser­vice groups since 1998.

“We’re proud to give com­mu­ni­ties qual­ity fam­ily en­ter­tain­ment that par­ents, grand­par­ents and kids can en­joy to­gether and make mem­o­ries that last a life­time,” Har­lem Am­bas­sadors pres­i­dent Dale Moss said. “Even peo­ple who aren’t bas­ket­ball fans love our show be­cause it’s two hours of fun and laugh­ter for a great cause. Plus, where else can you see your neigh­bor, your co-worker, your grand­daugh­ter’s coach, or your son’s teacher play against pro­fes­sional ath­letes? This is an event you do not want to miss.”
