A new campus-wide competition will combine several different categories of contest to build school spirit.
Although only in its first year, the Lancer Cup is designed to become a long-standing tradition, says coordinator Rob Crawford.
“We want to instill a sense of pride to students along with the idea that everyone at Windsor is a Lancer,” he says. “While it is important for us to welcome new students, our intention is to bridge a gap to bring upper-year and commuter students to inter-mix with the first years.”
The competition will field teams of six participants drawn from societies, clubs, groups, and faculties across campus in four contests:
- Tough Lancer, a 5km “fun-run” designed by fitness coordinator Frank Jenney to test students’ physical fitness and mental toughness;
- Bedracers, teams race against the clock—and each other—to push a bed on wheels carrying one of their members;
- Lancers Got Talent, performances that allow participants to show their creative sides;
- Crazy Olympics, testing teams on their problem-solving skills and ability to work together through 10 events.
When the dust settles and the points are tabulated, top teams will win prizes in UwinCASH—$1200, $600 and $300 for first, second and third place, respectively.
