Did you ever play basketball for the
Van Horn Falcons?

If so, you are invited to play on the Van Horn court once again at the first (as far as we know) Falcon Alumni Basketball Game on Saturday, January 25. (Of course, if you are not a former Falcon roundballer, you're still invited to attend!) Tip off for the Alumni game, to be held at the gymnasium at Van Horn, will be at 7:00 p.m.

The evening before (Friday, January 24), the Falcons will host William Chrisman's Bears in boys junior varsity (5:30 p.m. tipoff) and boys varsity (7:00 p.m. start) basketball matchups of the two Independence rivals at the Van Horn gym--now referred to as "The Factory". We will honor all former Falcon players during the Friday festivities in order to prepare for Saturday's Alumni Game.

To play in the January 25 Alumni Game--or if no longer able to play, to attend and to be honored--contact Van Horn boys basketball head coach Daniel Bieser directly at daniel_bieser@isdschools.org.

Come join us for a renewal of the Falcons-Bears rivalry on Friday, January 24, and take a trip down Memory Lane on Saturday, January 25

Website Contributors Wanted
      We are searching for writers, interviewers, web personalities and other content contributors to the community. There are undoubtedly hundreds of stories and remembrances to be shared. We are all keenly interested in filling-in-the-gaps from all of those years we were out of contact. If you are a writer (or simply a wannabe), this can be your platform. Write with a Byline; or nom de plume if you prefer. There are few limitations other than reasonably "good taste" and spell-checker. Since the web site is specifically designed to accommodate multi-media, we can utilize your photos and videos. If you have a video camera/microphone and would like to try your hand at "on-air" interviews, storytelling, or Van Horn related "news", record yourself and send it to us.
