Bouncy castle, dunk tank draw crowds at club recruiting event

Council of Clubs hosted the Spring Fair at Lane’s Bristow Square May 21.

More than 250 people had attended the event before it was half over, according to student government senate president pro tempore Emily Aguilera.

“It’s wonderful. I am really excited that everything has turned out exactly how I hoped it would,” Aguilera said. “We didn’t run into com- plications or anything. Everything is going surprisingly smooth.”

The purpose of the event was to inform Lane students about campus clubs. Even though not all clubs could send representatives to the event due to their hectic end-of-year schedules, tables were still set up for all clubs and were manned by other volunteers, Aguilera said.

A bouncy castle and a dunk tank were popular attractions at the event. Also, free cotton candy and savory dishes from Cafe Yumm were served.

Throughout the day, different volunteers agreed to be dunked in the tank. People paid $1 to purchase three balls, and if they hit the target, the person on the seat in the cage would suddenly drop in the water.

Lane student Andrew Gonzalez, cold, wet and wildly enthusiastic, provoked passersby to purchase balls.

“I’m cold, but that’s okay. I like trash-talking people so they buy more,” Gonzalez said. “You got to provoke them, man.”

Lane student Erin Debailo, an assistant at the dunk tank, eagerly waited her turn to be dunked.

“It’s good fundraising, and you get to know what clubs are here at Lane. I get to hang out with friends and meet new people,” Debailo said. “I’m waiting to be dunked. I’m going to have a go!”

Student government treasurer Zach Wais drew a crowd at the cotton candy machine.

“Everybody is very happy and they have forgiven us for bugging them about voting all year,” Wais said.
