UBCAni x SFUAni x BCITAni: Sports Day 2016!

Shiani here! Tano-kun ran away to play Pok√©mon Go, so it looks like I’ll be writing this blog post by myself… u__u

In any case, Sports Day was a blast! This year we collaborated with both SFU Anime Club and BCIT Anime Club for one of our biggest summer events to date! Read on for a recap of this amazing day~

The event was hosted at SFU’s Burnaby campus under a warm summer sun. The day started off with an Exec Relay, where execs from each of the schools participated in a Prince of Stride-style run! While SFU ended up winning (we’ll get you next time!), it sure was fun to watch!

This was followed by team activities – Capture the Flag and Dodgeball! Participants split into two teams to duke it out for a few extra raffle tickets!

What a wonderful day!

We then moved on to the first round of group activities, with groups of participants challenging each other in DDR, Quiz Relay, and foam swordfights!
