Teams of four will compete in a real-life game of Battleship. Using canoes as your battleship, teams will try to sink the other ships using buckets of water. Each round will last five minutes, and the boat with the least amount of water (measured at the center cross bar) is the winner.
Not competing? Come cheer on your friends and peers from the stands and get Attendance points for your organization.
Below you will find the rues and regulations for participating in the Battleship competition. If you are interested in participating, make sure you sign your team up on MavSYNC by Friday, October 6. Links to the forms can be found on the Homecoming website. Organizations participated in Battleship could win 150 more spirit points if their team is selected as the "Most Creative Outfits."
Have your group consider dressing up to show your creativity and spirit.
