Annual SPAD Bowling-Highlights

SPAD Bowling 2012

By SPAD Blogger Adam Johnston

 On February 29th to celebrate Leap Year Day, SPAD students tried their hand at bowling. The student council ran the event and approximately 40 SPAD students came out to participate in the festivities. SPAD Bowling has become an annual event known for its shenanigans; this year most certainly did not disappoint. Listed below is what you missed if you didn’t have the chance to attend.

Preparation and Hydration- A new addition to the SPAD Bowling tradition featured the athletes (students) to gather in the games room for hydration purposes. The students played pool and Ping-Pong while others focused on mentally prepared for the evening’s activities.
Hey Laddy, Laddy Laddy– As per most events where SPAD students travel together, things were a little rowdy on the bus ride over. The main cause of this was the prestigious “Hey Laddy, Laddy, Laddy” chant. For those of you who don’t know, this chant attempts to publicly ridicule someone else on the bus. Honourable mentions for best Laddys go out to Jeff Howlett, Cassidy Stewart and Brianne Pankoff.
Scott Rodger’s Birthday Party– To provide a little extra fun, the lanes were booked under Scott Rodgers’ name and the reason provided was that it was his birthday party which only happens every 4 years (But it really was not!). This allowed for many jokes at Scott’s expense given the  throughout the eventing.
Beauticians in Training– SPAD Bowling gave the first years another chance to become part of the SPAD family. The frosh got a first hand experience of how much fun SPAD events are.  Frosh participation in upcoming events is highly encouraged.
When the students returned to the university, all eligible flocked to the local watering hole that is the Pub Downunder. Glory stories were exchanged and battle wounds compared. Needless to say, the evening created some legends as well as stories that will last for years to come in the SPAD family.
