KALAMAZOO--Western Michigan University students and other Bronco fans can take a personal whack at rival Central Michigan Friday, Sept. 16, prior to Saturday's football contest at Waldo Stadium.

Members of Kappa Kappa Psi have painted an automobile in CMU colors, and Bronco fans will have the opportunity to take a whack at the Chipmobile for as little as $1. Participants will be provided with a selection of blunt instruments, including a sledgehammer, mini-hammer and tuba. Fans can also hurl eggs at the CMU car for just 25 cents each.
