Derby week is an exciting time for all the clubs and tribes at MC to come together and compete for the title of Derby week winner as well as Club and Tribe of the Year! (Clubs=boys. Tribes=girls) Every evening of the week, clubs and tribes compete in a fun activity where the winner's organization gets p oints, which will be added together at the end of the week to announce the Derby Week Winner!
**Snaps to the Council who planned and pulled off this crazy fun week!**
This year's Derby week was quite the success. It kicked off Monday evening with a relay all over campus! After running through an inflatable obstacle course, competitors had to swim a lap in the Alumni pool, make a half court shot in Alumni Gym, paint "Derby Week 2014" with their feet, and find a hidden Swerve ticket in the sand volleyball court. Mad props to everybody who participated! Civitan got 3rd place, Shawreth got 2nd, and Laguna won 1st!
Tuesday was a fun night of inflatable Jousting! This event was held in the center of New Men's Dorm where everyone watched from above, looking down into the rotunda, to watch the intense battle of the clubs and tribes. Tuesday night's Tribe winner was Nenamoosha! And the Club winner was Kokoa!
Wednesday was a Dodgeball Tournament! It was so intense! As all good dodgeball tournaments are... Civitan took first place and Swannanoa took 2nd place!
Thursday was SWERVE! During Swerve, each club and tribe has a team participate in an extremely competitive dance competition. In this event there is one Club winner and one Tribe winner and an overall winner! The overall winner gets the proceeds from the Swerve ticket sales donated to their philanthropy. This year's club winner was Civitan! And the tribe winner and overall winner was Laguna!!
The week ended with Derby Day on Saturday! To read more about Derby Day, check out our blog from Wednesday!
Congrats to Civitan! Winners of Derby Day and Derby Week for the 5th consecutive year!
