    OK, help the older folks out. What is Club Fest?


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    For the hundreds and hundreds of clubs at ISU, they have a start-of-the-year event at the MU with kiosks and such set up in order to recruit people. Students (like myself) go for all the free stuff that they give out.

    Re: Club Fest '07

    ClubFest is a giant festival of quirky awesomeness. Iowa State has something like 653 clubs now, and a lot of those will be present to get their name out and display themselves to potential members. WelcomeFest is the same thing, except with area business handing out sweet freebies in a bid to entice students to their place of business. Both are a fantastic time.

    ClubFest will do just fine- it's early enough that there are still lots of people who will go. Remember, even though it doesn't seem like it based on CF's particular cross-section, there are people who don't spend 27 hours getting blitzed out of their minds before every game, and instead just head over 45 minutes before kickoff... Crazy, I know.

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    This year it will be held at Lied Rec. Usually it is in the Memorial Union but the Great Hall is still under renovation along with the East Wing.

    Looks to me like they're trying to give students an alternative to getting drunk all day. It won't work. Smart students will go early and still be in the lots when they open at 1pm.

    Re: Club Fest '07

    Club Fest has traditionally been held on this day (2nd Thursday of school), Pollard just threw a wrench in it by moving football to Thursday night, and the organizers haven't felt it neccasiry to change the time. They'd probally also need to move Welcomefest (held on the 2nd Wednesday), so it's probally at that time slot to stay. I'd say they'd be completely screwed, but I supposed technically only about 1/3rd of the student body will be at the game, and maybe a little more will be tailgating. Shocking as it is, some students have a life outside of football so maybe they'll go to club fest insted
