The public is invited to join VC students and employees for the VC Pirates men's basketball game against Coastal Bend College starting at 7 p.m. Monday in the VC Sports Center gym. Admission to the game is $3 for adults and free for anyone with a college ID card.

Half-time activities will include an announcement of the winner of the Pirate Booty Challenge, followed by games that will include a mascot vs. mascot dance-off, a blind-folded credit card scramble and other prize giveaways.

Pirates Day also kicks off VC's Name the Pirate Contest to help name VC's new mascot. Suggestions for a name will be collected throughout the day and evening. The Pirate's new name, along with who provided the winning submission, will be announced at a later date.
