Montgomery County, TN — The public is invited to join the fun at next week’s fourth annual Mayor versus the General Broomball match. Montgomery County Mayor Jim Durrett has challenged Fort Campbell’s Major General Joseph McGee to a backyard broomball game on January 6 at 6 p.m., 2022 at the Downtown Commons outdoor ice skating rink. Fort Campbell was the last to take the trophy in 2020.
“I have loved watching people come together to enjoy the ice this season. Thursday night’s match is an opportunity to experience something a bit different while cheering on the County team and our local heroes from Fort Campbell. It will be a good time for everyone as the County plays hard to reclaim the trophy,” said Mayor Durrett.
“I’m grateful for Mayor Durrett’s invitation to continue the tradition of the annual broomball game. There’s no better place to build lasting friendships and strengthen the bonds between Montgomery County and Fort Campbell than a friendly, but tough competition on the ice.” said Maj. Gen. McGee 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) commander.
Additional broomball games will take place between the County Highway Department and the City Street Department at 5 p.m. and City Gas & Water will play against the Clarksville Department of Electricity at 7 p.m., following the Mayor vs. the General game.
