'R-I-R' on new bleachers really is just 'R-R'
Aug 23, 2012 - Rhonda Princippe, Riverton
I never really went to many high school football games at the old Tonkin Stadium bowl, but I am looking forward now to seeing them play at the new "Wolverine Field" at the high school. I walk the bike paths in the summer, and I saw them doing the new concession stand and seats. I saw the picture in the paper of how it looked when it was done.
I have a question about the white seats in with the red seats on the new bleachers. Why have they spelled out "R-I-R" in that upper section? Does it stand for something, or a slogan? Somebody said it means "Retire in Riverton," which did make me smile.
Does anyone know?
Editors note: What some people say looks like an "I" between the two capital "R" letters in the new grandstand section actually is simply the metal aisle between the two seating areas.
