Updated: DB Tribute to the Douglass Tigers Game


Come one, come all Douglass alumni!  Calling all true Douglass Tigers!

It's a night of fun and excitement on Friday, December 17th at the DB Buck Van Huss dome in Kingsport.

                                         February 1, 2020  

On Friday, December 17th, all Douglass alumni are invited to the Dobyns-Bennett varsity basketball boys-only game versus Science Hill (both teams will be dressed out in the gold and blue of the Douglass Tigers and Langston Golden Tigers).

Before the DB-Science Hill varsity game Friday night, all Douglass alumni and their families will be welcomed at a reception from 6 PM to 7 PM at the Buck Van Huss Dome.  It will be a time of reunion, reflection and renewal just like it was two years ago, and refreshments will be served.

At the reception, alumni and their families will be able to purchase a 2022 pocket calendar, emblazoned with the "Sons and Daughters of Douglass" on the cover and a pen.  The cost is $5 per calendar, and the popular Douglass alumni masks will also be on sale for $10 ($11.25 if ordered to receive by mail--call Charlotte Maxwell at 423-967-0536).  Both are fundraisers to benefit your Sons and Daughters of Douglass Alumni Association.

                                        February 1, 2020

Again, the reception is from 6 PM to 7 PM in the DB Girls' Gym where it was held the last time.  Enter the building at the main entrance (see the note above for handicapped), and the cost is $6.00 per person.  Again, the boy's varsity basketball game begins at 7:30 PM at the conclusion of the JV squad game.

NOTE:  Masks are not required at the game, but if you feel you need to wear them, feel free to do so (per CDC and Sullivan County Health Department guidelines).

After the game, the alumni are invited to an After-Party in the Douglass Community Room at V.O. Dobbins from 9 PM to 11 PM.  

Because of projected rainy weather, previously announced events scheduled for Saturday and Sunday are canceled.

Come one, come all and we'll have a ball on Friday night, December 17th and don't forget to bring your Douglass Tigers school spirit with you!
