Waynesville School officials say Military Appreciation Night, youth football, and Future Cheer will continue as planned this evening at Tiger Stadium in Waynesville as the Tiger football team plays arch-rival Camdenton. The gates will open at 6 o’clock. Activities will begin prior to the game at about 6:30 with game kickoff scheduled for 7 o’clock. All active duty service members and military retirees with a military ID will be admitted free to the game Friday night. Admission for those aged 5 and up is $4 per person and tickets may be purchased at the gate. However, Tiger TV Channel 12 will be unable to broadcast the Waynesville-Camdenton game as planned, due to unexpected circumstances. School officials are alerting fans to exercise caution when individuals or organizations claim to provide “live streams” of WHS for a fee or for free but require a credit card. All of the local authorized broadcasters are free and you do not need to enter a credit card to access locally produced, regular-season broadcasts.
Fake broadcast links and accounts often appear on social media sites like Facebook and Twitter claiming to live stream high school sports events. They also will post information in the comment section below legitimate Waynesville R-6 posts. You are advised to note that one of these broadcast links resulted in fraudulent credit card charges.
