Every Saturday night at MCS, there is an event led by one of the dish crews. This week it was a game of zap. Zap can only be played in the black of night when it is impossible to see, and people try to get to the waterfront and back to the Wallace Center without getting caught by a zapper (a person standing in a stationary spot with a flashlight who flashes you when they see/hear you.) Well we had quite a rambunctious crowd who took the game extremely seriously. Everyone showed up to play in a completely black outfit and with their game face on.
In the beginning, several people tried to go solo but soon realized the dangers that they could potentially face by going without a partner. Some of the dangers that the students faced were running into trees, getting stuck in tree branches, having bruises all over their knees, tripping, tripping, and more tripping. But don’t get me wrong, it was incredibly fun! The look of delight on people’s faces walking through the door to the Wallace Center is ineffable. Also, it was fun to see people’s reactions to light after being in complete dark for an hour. Yet, the two to take home the gold medal were Sarah Curry and Alice Kister whose crawling, and “stop, drop, and roll” skills were unsurpassed.
