Spring Forum Overnights

Spring Forum Overnights were held last weekend, with five forums chosing to do lock-ins inside of the CHS building.

Instead of celebrating CHS Forum Day on Friday, many forums decided to do activities the night before. Whether it be camping outside in the woods or going to TreeRunner, May 9 was a time to venture out and get away from traditional classes for many. However, returning to school was the best choice for five forums this year.

“It seems kind of boring to stay inside and watch a movie, but it’s actually really fun,” said Crabtree Forum member Rosie Matish. “I think it’s a really good way of spending time with your forum instead of doing a specific thing where you don’t get to talk or get to know people.”

Activities ranged from forum to forum, with many bringing food, playing games and just hanging out. The Dudley Forum, however, had a specific goal in mind.

“We’re doing tie-dye because it’s cheap and fun, and we don’t need to spend that much money,” said Dudley Forum member Siora Poppens. “We’re also wearing these shirts on Field Day, so it’s a win-win.”

Though forums like Dudley and Crabtree decided to go home at the end of the night, some did an overnight lock-in, where each forum had a designated space to sleep. The Mankad Forum had the gym, the Silvester Forum had the second floor and the Hunscher-Young Forum had the third floor. From using lunch tables for ping-pong matches to playing charades and “Among Us” in real life, forums used their space to the utmost.

“I wasn’t sure about this idea at first, but it seems pretty fun so far,” said Hunscher-Young Forum member Aaron Mendlow. “We went camping last year which was also great, but I think this was the best choice for today.”
