Weekly Roundup: Cobbler Cafe starts well, homecoming approaches

The Cobbler Cafe is up and running and is better than ever. This year they have new equipment, including a nacho cheese machine. A nacho cheese machine! That means when students end the day in a slump, they can head down to the Cobbler Cafe and buy nachos. When they’re the daily special they can be as cheap as a buck, which is quite a deal. Also new this year are ice cream novelties. As usual, all the proceeds go toward the Cobbler Snack Shack, which provides food for fellow Cobblers who find themselves short of funds and in need of nourishment.


The buses are racking up the mileage this weekend, with five varsity squads heading out for road games. The football team (1-2) has faced its share of adversity this year, but with a win in the left-hand column and Rapid City Journal player of the week recognition for running back Blake Stone, hopefully the team has its head up for the trip to Sioux Falls Roosevelt. The volleyball team (5-8), meanwhile, is headed to Gillette this weekend, and the cross country team has a big meet in Huron. Boys golf and girls tennis are also on the road, with the golfers in Mitchell and the tennis team in Aberdeen. It unfortunately looks like Twitter will be the best place for catching all the Cobbler sports action this weekend.


Not all is lost for Cobbler sports fans, however, because the soccer teams are in town! The boys’ and girls’ club teams play Pierre at 11:00am and 1:00pm, so head to Sioux Park to enjoy the beautiful weather while watching the beautiful game.


Homecoming is next week and the theme is Magic Kingdom, so raid your closets for ways to dress up as your favorite villain or character. Many Disney villains are likely to be roaming the halls on Wednesday, but if you’re looking to be the scariest Disney villain, don’t forget about this creepy Tim Burton-influenced creation: the horned king from The Black Cauldron. Here is the break-down of dress up days:

  • Monday: favorite Character
  • Tuesday: favorite Prince or Princess
  • Wednesday: favorite Villain
  • Thursday: Class Color
  • Friday: Red out
