On Monday, Jan. 6, Vice President for Student Development Dr. Chris Abrams sent out an e-mail to students that he had decided to turn “lemons into lemonade” by taking speedboats into the ice rink, or what he called a “wading pool.” At 4 p.m., a few students showed up after Abrams fished out the fruit students had thrown into the pool and the goldfish someone had placed in it as well.
Abrams said it the speedboats were the best idea he could come up with so that students could still use the rink.
However, there was a frequency problem with the remote controls and the boats were not able to be raced simultaneously. Abrams hopes to figure out the issue so that in the future if warm weather continues, students can race the speedboats.
