Poker Walk and Tricycle Race at NRCCBy Emily Polan • May 18th, 2009 • Category: Featured
On April 30th 2009 the pavilion near Godbey Hall was transformed into a huge party. Assistant Professor and Phi Theta Kappa Advisor Brian Clark organized and hosted the annual Poker Walk and Tricycle Race previously intended for Faculty and staff, but opened this year to students as well.
The day started out with the poker walk which took participants around the large wooded area between parking lots A and F. As they made the ½ mile loop each person collected a random poker hand. The participant with the best hand at the end won a prize.
After everyone took the ½ mile walk we all gathered around the traffic circle in front of Godbey Hall for the Tricycle race! Competitors from the faculty, the support staff, the baseball team, the Early Learning Center, and PTK all got on children’s tricycles and made one lap around the circle. Dr. Mark Rowh was there to start and end the race.
Food was provided by Mr. Clark’s nutrition class and we all enjoyed some after the race. While we were eating, door prizes were handed out and the Relay for Life “Pie-in-the-Face” fundraiser was promoted. In the end Dr. Adcock got the most tickets and was pied first, Michael McBride the spring Student Activities Intern was pied second and Mr. Kramer took the third.
