If you like fajitas -- really like fajitas --you'll want to take advantage of the benefit dinner on Friday, from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m. in the Wilson dome lobby.
Put on by the Rim Country Middle School Wrestling Booster Club, the event is to raise money to help support the grappling team as it battles for supremacy in the White Mountain League. Funds also help sponsor programs during off-season freestyle and Greco-Roman competition.
The fajitas you'll devour for only $5 a plate are some of the best around. They were voted "Best Food" at last year's Payson rodeo.
Booster Club member Lori Shewey attributes the quality of the meal to the specially purchased beef and chicken shipped in from Texas.
In addition to the fajitas, there's rice, beans and soft drinks.
If you're taking the youngsters to the dinner, they can eat for only $3.
Originally, the booster club was only going to go host the dinner if there was to be a playoff game held in Payson this evening.
But, the club decided to go ahead with the meal even though the Horn varsity team will be traveling to Globe for the opening round of the state tournament.
On the P&R front
Youngsters who wish to participate in the Town-sponsored fifth- and sixth-grade basketball leagues may sign up until Nov. 12 in the Parks and Recreation office located at Green Valley Park. The registration fee is $20 which includes a T-shirt, minimum of seven games and a pizza party at the end of the season. Those who register after the deadline will be placed on teams only if space permits.
For adults, registration for men's and women's volleyball leagues is Nov. 8-19, also in the GVP office. The entry fee is $150 per team and includes a season-ending tournament. Play begins Dec. 1 and ends in late January. There will be a vacation break during the Christmas and New Years holidays.
