Transcript Spring Weekend Residents enjoy fun, games The event of the year for residents, Spring Weekend '89, enveloped an entire day and gave almost 1,000 residents a way to procrastinate on their studies while having a great time. The weekend officially started on Friday, April 21 when scavenger hunt lists were available for distribution. Each team participating had an opportunity to enter people in every event. One oddity on the list was a live squirrel. Only one team was able to deliver the animal. Major events of the weekend were on Saturday. The day started at 10:00 am with the first round of the volleyball tournament. The single- round elimination tournament lasted all day. After the volleyball came the raw egg eating contest at 10:30. The purpose was to see which team could eat the most raw eggs in two minutes. There was more participation in this event than one might think. The winning team ate a combined total of 45 raw eggs. The teams had to be made up of one male and one female. After this scrumptious event came the choc olate pie eating contest, tug-of-war, icy hot buns contest, obstacle course, hotdog stuff, innertube races and the bed races. The chocolate pie eating was a sight to see. After the contestants were done eating their pies, they took after the spectators and made sure no one was clean. Tug-of-war followed this event and pitted weight against ingenuity. Teams that advanced were not always the team that weighed the most. The most interesting of all the events had to be the icy hot buns contest. Contestants had to melt a 25- pound block of ice any way they could using only their bodies. There were many different strategies used and some grabbed much attention. After all the events were done, ARA helped the Residence Halls Association serve a steak dinner. It was the first of the premium nights for the year. During dinner, prizes were given away to lucky residents. The dinner was the lead-in for the big event — The Shaft. The Shaft played an open-air concert Saturday night on the roof of Oberholtzer Hall. ► Page Bangs 198 ■ Residence Halls
