Fans to make American Flag Card Trick at Homecoming Football Game

Written by Kraig Hunter on . Posted in News


What does 880 painted cards make? 

The answer -  the American flag at WCA-A’s Homecoming on Saturday September 30th.

Such events, dubbed card stunts, are often seen in large stadiums prior to the main sporting attraction.  The action is now coming to Barrett!  Spectators will be in the grandstand ten minutes before the 3pm kickoff and ushers will handout pieces of painted cardboard.  As the mass student choir sings the National Anthem everyone will raise their card high.  With area veterans forming the stars, the entire grandstand will be transformed into a giant American flag.

Even better is that participants will be able to watch the stunt live via video fed from a commercial drone and projected in front of the grandstand.

All members of the Knights Nation are invited to Todd & Heidi Bright’s house to paint the cards and get a sneak peek of the 84’ assembled flag.  The festivities begin at 6pm Wednesday September 13th with light snacks and refreshments being served by WCA teachers.  The Bright’s home is at 7421 County Rd 1 SW, Kensington.  Head East on state highway 27 and you’ll be sure to find it.  Bring your family, fetch your friends, and ask your neighbors, and partake in what promises to be an unforgettable event
