Cue “The Weekenders” Theme Music

Readers, I’m so sorry. I feel like I’ve been living for the weekend lately in my posts, which I generally try not to do because each day is a wonderful gift from God, but sometimes there is just so much good stuff to look forward to on the weekends!

So here I go again. Talking about the weekend. I’ve decided I have no shame because this weekend is about to be awesome!

First up on Friday, we have Women’s and Men’s Night Out through the Keppel House! I’m not quite positive what the men are doing, but the women are playing Capture the Flag at the beach and eating some pizza. So who wouldn’t want to do that, am I right? I mean that’s right up my alley, so you’ll know where to find me Friday. To sign up, go to the Keppel House website – there’s still time to get your name on the list!

Saturday is just as good, because two really big events are happening on this day! First up is The Pull at 3 p.m. at the Black River (don’t ask me for directions to that locationĀ because I honestly have no idea. Go ask a Puller/Moraler aka the people in camo pants and either a red or maroon t-shirt.) The Pull is SO much fun! It’s a huge tug of war (more info to come on that in my next blog post) and has been a Hope tradition since basically forever. Head over there Saturday to check it out! *Subtle plug for Odd Year – ooh rah.*

This was a picture I took of Odd Year winning The Pull last year! It was such a great thing to experience. Everyone needs to at least once while they're at Hope!

Then after The Pull, the Student Activities Committee is putting on a new event called Fall Into Fun. This is a sort of after-party after The Pull for students. It has yard games, and a dance party after the sun sets. HOLLER AT THAT. I love to dance like no other.

That’s allĀ I’ll be doing this weekend, although there are endless possibilities for you! Enjoy the beginning of this fall season, readers!

Until next time.
