A total of 22 clubs gathered in the lower quad on Thursday and Friday to introduce themselves to the students. On Thursday, the organizations promoted themselves and were able to recruit new members. Several culture clubs were present including: Asian Club, Pacific-Islander Club, and Latino Culture Club. One of the members of Latino Culture Club explained the purpose of the club to be a place “to bring Latin races together.”
On the other side of the lower quad stood S.N.A.C., or Student Nutrition Action Club, who’s purpose is to promote healthy eating among students. Business, Virtual Enterprise periods 1 and 3, Entrepreneurship, Journalism, Band, and Choir were among the classes and academies present that wished to introduce themselves to the students.
As Friday approached, the congregation of informational booths turned into a bustling marketplace. The booths sold food and services to make money for their clubs. Gamers Club set up a barbecue, selling bacon-wrapped hot dogs for a dollar. Key Club also made major profits as they sold out of In-N-Out Hamburgers during the high school lunch.
Unlike the food-selling booths around them, Junior Class Business Academy took a different approach and gave both high school and middle school students the opportunity to throw pies at their teachers and principals. Journalism’s section turned into a photo booth where students could dress up and take pictures in front of a green screen. For a little extra, a backdrop could be purchased to fill up the green screen. Last year’s graduate Dominick Walker returned to promote Costa Mesa’s Skate Club and Team. Many bystanders watched in awe as members of the club did tricks on the ramp that the club had set up.
As the bell rang and the day drew to a close many clubs were facing the same question: What were they going to do with all the leftover food? As the clock ticked, members of Asian Club rushed to give away leftover fried rice and National Honor Society members gave away the abundance of breadsticks. In the end, the day was a success as many clubs drew in major profits.
