Construction has started on the Cowboy Sports Complex Phase I.
Phase I consists of new, improved lights, artificial turf football field, new track and event areas. The new lights are up with construction being done this summer on the field and track. Target date for completion of the football field is the first home game and the track will be finished in September. This project has been needed and has been worked on since we held our last track meet in May of 2006. We officially started our fund raising campaign in July of 2013. Since then over $220,000 has been raised from local individual and business contributions. The cost of Phase I will be $1,400,000 with the school paying for the majority of the project. Our committee’s goal is to raise $400,000 to put towards Phase I. We are still asking for donations and on June 18th from 6-9:00 pm, we will hold a Cowboy Callathon from the Killdeer Public School. We ask that you consider making a donation towards this project that is not only for track and football, but will serve the community as well. The track will provide a flat, secure walking surface for the community to enjoy. The turf can be used for soccer games and other public events.
Phase II will consist of a new grandstand, concession stand and restrooms. We hope to start that phase as soon as Phase I is completed. Everyone appreciates our grandstand seating and wants something similar or the same. The amount of contributions coming in will decide what kind of bleacher system our new facility will have. The existing stadium is not handicapped accessible, however after the stadium is renovated it will be.
Contributions are being held by the North Dakota Community Foundation (NDCF) which is a non-profit organization so donations to the Cowboy Complex are tax deductible. Donations can be dropped off or mailed to the Killdeer Public School, PO Box 579, Killdeer ND 58640, mailed to the NDCF, PO Box 387, Bismarck ND 58502-0387, or donate by credit card on the www.NDCF.net website. Checks should be made payable to NDCF and write Cowboy Sports Complex in the memo.
The callathon will be performed by Killdeer students, we hope you will help us meet our goal! Thank you in advance for your generosity.
