The showdown was the highlight of the Students' Association-sponsored weekend designed to promote school spirit among students. The weekend began with a pep rally after Chapel on Fri- day and the traditional all-night ringing of the bell by the freshman class. Approximately 400 people attended a barbecue at Allen Farm on Friday evening. Students participated in various games including an egg ross, a three-legged race and a wild- cow-milking contest, And what would a barbecue in West Texas be without a goat dressing contest? Many adventure-seeking participants soon realized the toughest thing was not getting the clothes on the goat, but catching the goat. The Aggie CLub sponsored a rodeo after the barbecue. As club members showed their skills in bronco busting, bull riding, barrel racing and tying. After the activities at Allen Farm, "Hero," a pop-variety band from Dallas, performed in Cullen Auditorium. Four of the band's five members are former ACU students. A 5-kilometer road race Saturday morning attracted 71 6l77Z77261f 615125 students. The winner in the men's division was Kirk Thax ton, a senior accounting major from Abilene, and the winnei in the women's division was Denise Smith, a senior home economics major from Littleton, Colo. Top finishers in the race received a "Hammer the javelinasn T-shirt and 10 intramural points for tearr participation. Before Saturday night's game, the SA sponsored a car- decorating contest on the Big Purple Stomping Grounds Then about 150 students enjoyed a tailgate party at Shotwell Stadium, featuring Larry's Better Burger ice cream. The Students' Association hopes to sponsor a weekend each year designed to promote school spirit, said Shelli Dew, SA special events coordinator. "Hammer thejavelinasn originated with last year's "Roast the Rams" weekend. The idea was developed during a brainstorming session by Bart Castle, Steve Mack and jimmy Cawyer, the 1982-82 SA executive officers. Castle said "the three hoped the weekend would become a tradition," Robert Reagan, a junior public relations major from Austin, said, "The Aggie Club did a good job preparing for the barbecue." Reagan also said, "Student participation in the weekend's activities was good and the football players appreciated the students supporting them." - Kelb Tolron C tu E U 3 CU CE
