On Thursday January 26th (Noon) to Friday January 27th (Noon),
University of OttawaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Ã¢â‚¬Å“La Guerre des TuquesÃ¢â‚¬Â contest took place in front of Taberet Hall.
Each Faculty of the University of Ottawa, had a team organized to compete in this
Winter Challenge event!
(Communications, Engineering, Arts, Social Science, Management & Science)
My group of Commies (Communications)
designed a Mexican Resort for our Snow Sculpture/Fort. We even had a swimming pool, hot tube & Bar!
Our group work extremely hard to break up the rock hard snow from our pile,
so that we could actually use it for building our fort.
It took 5 solid hours just to break it down enough to actually use part of it.
Then my friend Tao and I were on Water duty, where we had to go around to the
back of Taberet hall to fill up a garbage pail of water, then carry it back to the front where the sculptures were being built.
I have no clue, how many times we did that heavy trip, but I know we did it for 6 hours straight.
Around 2pm, a few Engineers came by and mocked our wall because it wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t straight or flat.
They laughed saying that it wouldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t hold.
Then around, 7pm they came back and said that they admired our Coconut palm tree that we had built on our wall.
So HA Engineers!
At 9:15am, we added our final touches to Ã¢â‚¬Å“Club CommieÃ¢â‚¬Â, and took a step back to see this!
From far away, ours was the one that most attracted your eyes! It all had to do with our sweet looking pool!
When the judges came around at noon, one came to me and said
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Wow, this is really different from all the rest, and it makes me want to go on vacation!Ã¢â‚¬Â
So that was a sweet comment.
For a our group picture (taken by OttawaU, I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have a copy yet)
we were all hanging out all over our Resort,
and I (the lifeguard) was in the Pool swimming! w00t!!
It turned out awesome! We all loved it!!
So the Ranking order was this (as far as I know):
1st - The Engineers (dam cheaters, they been first for so many years now. ARGH!!)
2nd Ã¢â‚¬" Arts (The Love Shack, which looked awesome)
3rd Ã¢â‚¬" Communications
So all in all, it was a blast, not too cold either, so that really helped with making it an AWESOME time!!
I cant wait to do it again Next Year!!
