    That was fun, too bad they ended it after roughly 20 min. I never knew pillows hurt so much. :biggrin:

    It got a little intense, glow sticks being thrown (some of them broken) and lots of chaos with all the upperclassmen cheering us on from their windows.

    AF - is that you in that picture ?!!!!

    another13mom - I didn't realize that it was just a plebe activity!

    My son had a blast!
    His friends at civ schools are shocked that he is actually allowed to have fun!

    No, that isn't me. The plebes in my company agreed we would all wear unbloused ACUs, wet weather gear, and our issued chemistry goggles so we would look froggish. (The Frog is our company mascot)

    That was just one of our many opponents :biggrin:

    And yeah, the PLEBE pillow fight is a plebe only event. Most of the cows and firsties were at their clubs drinking while this happened so there were only a few of them trying to stop us. The yearlings just laughed and cheered us on from their windows.

    Your post is the first time that I heard it was a "PLEBE" pillow fight.

    Yeah, were in our rooms waiting for them to come back from their ceremony. We finished barracading all the entrances with footlockers and laundry carts except for one which is our meeting point.

    I believe the correct term for what the yearlings were doing is "supervising."
    :biggrin:

    It just seemed like spectating. They kept telling us to go keep going after we were told not to do it and stop by the firsties.

    Yeah. It was awesome.

    Hey AF you missed the naked man in central area right after the pillow fight though. The First Captain "chased" after them but "wasn't able" to catch any of them.
