Dixie State had a back to school carnival for the Alumni and their kids. I don't think there was a single college kid there. Not even running the booths really. They were being run by the Deans! It was held inside the Burns Arena which was different too. As you walked in they gave you a card that had numbers and pictures on it that they marked off after you did each thing. The first thing we did was got a free shirt!
Then we played some games and then ate dinner.
Dixie now has their own Cornhole set!
Del Beatty was manning a booth. It was pretty fun.
The student that has taken over Brooks the Bison this year is about 6 inches shorter than last year. His shorts go clear down to his calves. It's pretty funny. Josh and George were taller than he was. Hopefully he"ll gain some confidence too. He was pretty subdued. I need to give him some pointers on how to be a mascot and turn the mascots head to look at a camera.
We played more games and then went back and started over. By that time Kyle had taken over for Del. So we did his booth. Then it was over. We got a lot of STUFF!
A growth chart, 2 Dixie State Flags, 7 Gliders, 3 Squishy Balls, 5 Sunglasses, 2 Paddle balls, 4 Stickers and 6 Tattoo's, 6 Lip Gloss, 3 Bison, 5 Cups and 5 T-Shirts! We are set for the year!Then we went over to Kyle's office to help him change out some chairs. JoEllen wanted to massage chair back home and Kyle wanted a different chair in his office. So, we switched them out and went to cram everyone into the elevator. When we walked over to get in, this is what we saw. So we made them take that one down and get it out so we could put the massage chair in.
So they did and the elevator came back up empty. We got in with the chair (this is Josh sitting in the massage chair) and when the doors to the elevator opened at the bottom, this is what we saw...All the rest of the kids on the other chair with George and Ben, blocking our way out.
They thought they were so funny. We piled the chairs in Kyle's truck and the kids too and went to the Wells' to unload.
It was a fun end to a fun night.
