Student Council has high hopes for 2011 Pilot Olympics

 -  -  31

The Bethel College student council will be hosting the second annual Pilot Olympics next week as students across the campus compete for gold, silver, and bronze. Last year’s Olympics were a great success as there were many students involved and close competitions. Perimeter housing is the reigning champion for men, while Tucky will be trying to defend their title on the women’s side. Students will also have the opportunity to compete as individuals this year as well. Nevertheless, this year’s Pilot Olympics look to be new and improved. Up to 21 teams will be given shirts to compete in during the competitions and there has been widespread promotion throughout the campus. In addition, each event has been carefully planned out with lists of rules and bracket information for tournament style events. The events for this weeklong competition have also been enhanced from the previous year. There will be twelve events that will take place between Monday, February 14, and Thursday February 17. Monday’s four competitions will consist of group disc golf, Texas Hold ‘em, shirt judging, and Mario Kart wii. Tuesday will include individual disc golf, bible quizzing, and euchre. Wednesday will provide cookie eating and dodgeball, while Thursday will close out the week with snow sculpture judging, academic super bowl, and Wii Speed Slice. “This year’s Pilot Olympics are shaping to be the best Olympics yet,” said Rosten Hamman, president of Student Council. “It looks like there are going to be many students involved and hopefully some strong competition.” In addition Hamman stated that he feels that last year’s Olympics were a great success but he feels that this year’s should be even better. It is evident that Student Council has put a lot of time into making this year’s events a success and hope to make a strong tradition of this.
