Drake Relays Officials Hope to Break Attendance Mark


April 2nd, 2012 by Ric Hanson

Officials with the Drake Relays are hoping for another attendance record for this month’s event. Single session tickets went on sale last week and associate athletic director Dennis Francois says all-session packages are still available. Reserved adult tickets for all sessions are $85.  An “All American” package, which covers Friday night and Saturday, for $55. A “Gold” package — which has two levels: Day only, Friday and the Saturday session, for $70; and a Friday & Friday night package for $45.  Francois says the ticket packages are designed for different fan bases. He says there is a special price for Thursday’s distance carnival, of $5. Francois says plenty of tickets remain for all sessions but they expect the Saturday afternoon session to sell out for the 47th consecutive year.Francois says there are two ways to order tickets: call the Drake ticket office at 515-271-3647, or online at www.godrakebulldogs.com.  The Drake Relays are April 26th through the 28th.
