Community Invited to 4th Annual Dome Opening Celebration

GREENVILLE, Pa.—The public is invited to celebrate the opening of the Rissell-Schreyer Dome on Friday, Dec. 6 from 4:30 - 10 p.m., in Thiel’s Rissell-Schreyer Dome at Alumni Stadium in Greenville, Pa. This annual event is free and open to the public.

The family-friendly Dome Opening Celebration features a variety of activities for everyone – from creating custom cellphone cases to batting cages and live bands and much more – and a $6.50 all-you-can-eat dinner buffet is offered by AVI Foodservices.

The Dome will be open for community access again this winter and spring. It will be available for walking Monday through Friday, 8 to 11 a.m. The driving range will also be available Monday through Friday, 8 to 11 a.m. Buckets of golf balls (approximately 50) are available for $5.

For the safety of community members and Thiel’s student-athletes, the community’s cooperation in recognizing the College’s wishes to keep its varsity athletic practices closed to those outside of the Department of Athletics is very much appreciated.

The Rissell-Schreyer Dome is available for rental to a variety of groups and organizations at a reasonable cost. Contact Dan McMillen at 724-589-2239 or for more information.
