On Friday September 18 the Peewee Mustangs hosted a Team Building Outdoor Movie Night in the Matthew Halton field, where kids and members of the community were invited to watch When The Game Stands Tall. Food was collected for Pincher Creek's food bank at the event.

Coach Chris Ney spoke to the crowd before the event, his theme being "loss", a particularly timely message.

When The Game Stands Tall was adapted from a novel of the same name by Neil Hayes. It chronicles the true story of Bob Ladouceur, and the record-setting 151-game high school football winning streak by De La Salle High School of Concord, California. It addressed and subverted many traditional sports film tropes, and was quite a spectacle on the big screen in the big field.

Popcorn was provided by the Fox Theatre for the event, while Blairmore's Orpheum Theatre, provided the professional screen. Snacks were donated by parents of the Mustangs. The projector was provided by Carrah Walter, and Pincher Creek Multimedia (Pincher Creek Voice) chipped in sound equipment and speakers.

The turnout was exceptional, far surpassing the Peewee Mustang's roster. By our count over one hundred people attended the showing, including Mustangs of all levels, parents, community members, and friends. It was great to see so many people spending their Friday night supporting Mustangs football.
