This year’s BBL Summer games pitted “First String Theory” (Laura, Marlene, and Ovi) against “The Iron (IV) Maidens” (Meagan, Alex, Sara, and Victoria) for the coveted BBL Party Cup. On the hottest day of the year, the teams raced all over campus and downtown to solve clues and take the most creative photos at Knoxville landmarks and establishments. Meanwhile the boss sat in a comfy, air conditioned armchair receiving and scoring photos via text message. Teams were awarded bonuses for style and speed, and the best photo of the day won a cash prize! Here are some of the highlights:
In a nail-biter finish, First String Theory won the BBL Summer Games with a score of 75 – 71, becoming the third annual recipients of the BBL Party Cup. The whole lab convened at The Downtown Grill & Brewery to celebrate the closing ceremonies of the BBL Summer Games (a.k.a. happy hour). Iron (IV) Maidens are currently plotting their revenge for the upcoming BBL Winter Games.
