We had 12 first graders and our whole family up on campus running two teams (Team Blue and Team White) around trying to find a dozen or so clues for our digital camera scavenger hunt. After an hour of running and posing, we taught them all the lyrics to the fight song, showed them highlights of Jimmer Fredette and fed them bagel pizzas and legendary BYU mint brownies.
In planning the event, the professor and I had scoured the bookstore and other local venues for BYU stuff. With the stiff prices they charge, we couldn't even afford to get them each a keychain ($7.99 for a keychain. Really? I say. Really?!). Enter Curtis to the rescue. He brought two huge bags of swag over and we made gift bags for everyone that even Oprah would have been proud of.
The inadvertent side effect was a pretty hard sell for the university. It was about the time we got to the olympic torch that one of the kids screamed "This place is the GREATEST! I am SO coming HERE!!!!"
