This year the game will be held at the high school stadium on Friday, Nov. 1 at 7:30 p.m.
As far as rivalries go, Shafter-Wasco is one of the biggest rivalries in the area. Plans are underway in Tiger territory for Shafter-Wasco Week (Wasco-Shafter Week if you happen to be General) Oct. 28, with culmination of activities at the game Friday night.
The week lays out this way:
The community rally is set for Wednesday, Oct. 30 at 7 p.m. in the old gym, with the public encouraged to attend. Breakfast at Shafter High will follow on Friday, Nov. 1 at 8 a.m., followed by the exchange rally in Shafter's gym.
Next is the Wasco exchange rally at 11:30 a.m. in the Wasco auditorium, then the game that night.
Students will also be dressing up all of rivalry week.
Attendees at the exchange events include representatives from each school's administrators, Associated Student Body, and cheer and football teams. There will be cheer performances and an introduction of players at each school.
