It’s that time of year again. Time for barbeque, inflatables and music.

On Saturday, May 3 from 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., on the common’s area, Campus Activities Programming Board will be hosting the college’s annual Spring Fling event. If there is inclement weather, Spring Fling will be relocated in the Nerney Field house in the Dixon Center.

The events will begin with a barbeque at 11:30 a.m. on the Founders Hall lawn. If students have a meal plan, meal exchange will be available. The lunch will be moved to Founders Hall if there is inclement weather.

There will be a number of activities on the commons such as horseshoes and wiffle ball as well as a number of different inflatables. The inflatables will include a human foosball tournament, mechanical bull contest and a dunk tank. There is also an extreme combination that includes bungee jumping and rock climbing in one.

CAP board president-elect, sophomore Mike Sofia feels that CAP board is very well prepared and organized. “We have all new events that haven’t yet been seen by Cabrini. Both bands are highly energetic and have a real sprin type of atmoshphere,” Sofia said.

Along with the physical entertainment there will also be music provided by the radio station. WYBF is bringing in DJs that will play mainly hip-hop music. “Times are changing and hip hop is big right now. People would rather listen to the music that they know,” senior WYBF production manager, Cheryl Tranchitella, said.

Along with the music there will be a freestyle contest of which the winner will win an MP3 player provided by WYBF.

CAP Board will be sponsoring headlining band Zox and cover band Riding Bikes. The show will showcase a blend of rock, reggae, punk and classical music.

Sponsors will be set up around the commons. Rita’s Water Ice will be selling water ice for $1 to all students. A limited number of free Spring Fling t-shirts designed by junior CAP Board member Laura Giorlando will be available to students.

At 9 p.m. the movie 8 Mile that stars rapper Eminem will be shown in the Widener Center Lecture Hall.

“I think that this Spring Fling will be the best one ever experienced at Cabrini,” Sofia said.
