Assassins Wanted!

The newly established CAB (Campus Activities Board) invites all students to participate in a campus-wide game of Assassin. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the game, players will sign up in teams (or as single players who will be assigned to teams randomly). Each team will be matched with another team to target. As a team, the goal is to track down and “kill” the members of the “target team” until one team remains: the true Assassins.


The event kick-off will be on Saturday, Sept. 30 and the event will last throughout the month of October. CAB will be hosting a closing event on Friday, Oct. 27, when the ultimate Assassin will be announced. All participants will be entered into a drawing for various prizes. Additional prizes will also be awarded to individuals based on performance in the game (first kill, last one standing, etc.)


If you have questions or are interested in signing up, stop by the Dugout during lunch on Tuesday, Sept. 26. You can also sign up here.


Registration is free and all participants will receive a free T-shirt. The registration deadline is Wednesday, Sept. 27 at midnight. Those who register after this date will be unable to participate in the game.
