CAB provides laser tag for YHC students
By Hailey Silvey, Staff Writer
On Thurs. Oct. 14, the Campus Activities Board or CAB hosted laser tag for Young Harris College students on the plaza.
The laser tag event was held in a complex that was provided by TjohnE Booking and Production company. The complex was a giant inflatable dome.
Students wishing to play laser tag were divided into two teams of five. Each set of teams were allowed to play for 10 minutes each round.
In all, there were about 200 YHC students present and most of them played multiple rounds of laser tag throughout the night. There were eighteen rounds played in all.
Rouseline Emmanuel, the director of CAB, said “we got the idea for laser tag from a conference we went to. It’s just the idea of bringing laser tag to campus rather than the students having to leave to go to FunWorld to play. I think the event will be really successful. We had the event last year and there were anywhere from 200 to 250 people there.”
In addition to the laser tag event, CAB also provided hot chocolate to participants, keeping YHC students warm while they waited for their turn to compete in the next round of laser tag.
Because of the great student turn out for the event, laser tag rounds lasted from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.
Calle Wallace, the social activities director for CAB, assisted in organizing and setting up the laser event. Wallace and Jade Garrison, publicity director for CAB, were in charge of advertising for the event.
Wallace said, “I thought the event was a huge success, but I knew for sure whenever I still heard people talking about it the next day.”
Alex Spiegel, an undecided major from the city of Young Harris said, “I really enjoyed the event. I thought it was very fun and thought it was very well done. I thought the scoring was slightly off, but I was able to play five rounds in two and a half hours, so the wait was not bad at all.”
