The American River College Associated Student Body Clubs and Events Board (CAEB) continued their planning of the Sept. 22 Welcome Day and the first ASB film festival at their meeting Tuesday.

President Justin Nicholson said the board is still working on games with ideas such as a haggis toss and tug of war.

“We have nine days until Club day, which is great for us but also a little stressful,” Nicholson said.

Keeping with the theme of Greek Week, clubs will have the option of participating in a toga contest where prizes will be given to the three clubs with the best toga designs.

“Please wear undergarments and make sure areas that would be exposed (are covered),” Nicholson said.

Of the 17 official clubs, five to seven usually participate, according to Nicholson.

Engineering Club representative Ben McNeilley said that his club would likely not be participating.

“I’m new to this,” McNeilley said. “So I was kind of a little late with some of my updates from the last two weeks. Communication been kind of lax, so I’m not sure.”

Senate President Valencia Scott said members of Senate will be participating with clubs in the toga contest.

“We are going to be taking shifts at the ASB table,” Scott said.

CAEB also discussed the possible film festival where students could create their own films or videos to be judged to the festival.

“We’re not going to be throwing a theme for this one,” Nicholson said. “Just so that we can encourage as much participation as possible.”

Nicholson said that the submission period would tentatively begin next month and end as late as February in order to give students plenty of time to participate.

CAEB is planning the first ASB Film Festival for sometime in March.
