After rain delay, anticipation for event builds
By ALEX VAN BEEK
Students that headed down to Marshall Hall on April 8 to take part in the annual Grill Down the Hill would have not only been disappointed, but wet too. Due to inclement weather, the event was postponed to Friday, April 15.
Grill Down the Hill is an outdoor event that showcases grilled food, local bands and other various activities, so the need for good weather is absolutely paramount to its success.
According to sophomore Lonnie Southall, one of the organizers of the event, the food is free, a fact sure to appeal to the average, penniless college student.
“There will be burgers, hot dogs, chips and sodas, with grilling by OSACS,” Southall said.
Local band Who Took Fred? will be performing at the Grill. According to Southall, who is also the front-man of the band, they will be playing both cover songs by bands like The Who, Foo Fighters and Modest Mouse, and original material.
In the past, there have always been a variety of outdoor activities, and this year looks to be no different.
“We are going to have a giant Jenga we rented from OSACS, relay races and a ton of other fun stuff,” said sophomore Tiffany Sharpe, who is also helping to arrange the event.
The staff organizing the Grill is working to make sure every student can find something that appeals to them at the event.
The Grill Down the Hill begins at 5 p.m. at Marshall Hall and everyone involved is bursting with excitement.
“The only way we are canceling it is if it rains, and fortunately the weather is looking great,” Sharpe said.
