THE ROTARY CLUB OF JACKSON BIG GAME BELL TROPHY

The long standing rivalry between Amador High School and Argonaut High School has been played 99 times since 1923. In 1971, The Rotary Club of Jackson created the Big Game Bell Trophy which the winner gets to keep until the next playing of the Big Game. This year we created a game logo which was used on ball caps, banners and newspaper articles. Each player and coach received a souvenir ball cap for participating in the game and after club members bought caps, the remaining ball caps were given to the schools' booster clubs for a fundraising opportunity for their schools. 
This year was the 100th playing of this community rivalry and the competition was fierce. The sky was clear, the weather mild and the enthusiasm for the "Battle for the Bell" was over the top! When the final whistle blew, Argonaut HS took the Bell away from Amador HS which has held the bell trophy for the past 4 years. The final score was 43-21. This was definitely a sign of home town pride. See more photos here
