IOWA CITY – MSL Sports and Entertainment has announced the postponement of all 16 2008 Gridiron Bash events – including the April 18 event slated to be held in historic Kinnick Stadium – due to an interpretation by a member conference of NCAA rules regarding current student-athlete participation in the activity and the specific plans for the event at institutions other than the UI.
Individuals who purchased tickets to the event by credit card will see a full refund on their next statement. Those who purchased by personal check will receive a refund check from the UI in the next week to 14 days.
Fans of the Iowa Hawkeyes who had voted in the “Bash For Cash” competition will not be billed by the cellular telephone provider.
The first-ever Gridiron Bash at Kinnick Stadium, to date, was to include a concert by two-time Grammy Award winner Kelly Clarkson, appearances by the UI Marching Band, cheerleaders, pom pon squads and the UI Golden Girl, a performance by the current Miss Iowa, Diana Reed, and video highlights of University of Iowa football and other UI teams broadcast on HawkVision.
