Book Chronicling Chiefs' Camps is Available
JULY 29, 2005--To commemorate the 15th consecutive summer training camp of the Kansas City Chiefs football team at UW-River Falls, the University has produced a special anniversary publication.
“It was a lot of fun to look back over the past 15 years and put some of those memories in print,” said UW-RF Sports Information Director Jim Thies, of Hudson, who has helped tell the stories of the NFL franchise since its first summer on campus in 1991.
The publication documents the training camps with more than 100 photographs, including fans, favorite players such as Joe Montana, and last year’s visit by President George W. Bush, taken by University photographer Jens Gunelson of River Falls. The publication was designed by UW-RF art director Tony Bredahl of Hudson.
Highlights of players, coaches and fans are included in the book. Autograph pages are included as well as a timeline of Chiefs and University notable events over the years. A welcome by Chiefs president/GM/CEO Carl Peterson and UW-RF Camp Coordinator and Vice Chancellor of Administration and Finance Mary Halada of River Falls introduces the publication.
The limited-edition, keepsake book is available for sale at www.uwrf.edu/chiefs or at the camp concession stand during the open practices at the Ramer Field Sports Complex, throughout training camp, which runs July 28 – Aug. 19. For more information about public practices and special events, visit the Web site listed above.
Cost of the book is $7 at the stand or $9, which includes shipping and handling, through U.S. mail. For more information on ordering a copy, contact Alice Cernohous at UW-RF, 715/425-3737.
