Spring Weekend offers fun break, generates minor T-shirt rift

It was Saturday April 22 – and Castleton broke loose from the books to enjoy the annual Spring Weekend hosted by Student Association Activities Board. From a physic fair and mechanical bull to a human joust game and a battle of the sexes game show, it wasn’t your typical day on campus.

Melissa Paradee, coordinator of student activities, said she believes that this Spring Weekend was one of the best because “we were able to offer a wider variety of activities” and because there were more giveaways than ever before.

Students who went to Spring Weekend were able to walk away with free food, key chains, laundry bags, cups and t-shirts.

But it wasn’t without some controversy.

Students did complain about how the T-shirts were being distributed.

“We only had 150 shirts and we tried to distribute them as fair as possible,” Paradee said in reaction to the complaints.

Maggy Brooks the special weekends chairperson on the activities board, was in charge of setting up and planning the entire event.

“I think it went as well as it could since it was inside and everything was planned to be outside,” said Brooks.

She also agreed that the only complication was with the T-shirts.

“More people wanted them than originally thought and people were coming to get a T-shirt, but not staying at the events,” also mentioned Brooks.

The crew that was passing out the T-shirts decided to give a ticket to each of the first 20 people who went to the events throughout the day.

Student Jen Gregor said she thought that “the mechanical bull and game show attracted more people than the bands, but overall it was great. people were angry about the t-shirts, but who cares.
