College of Education student group Edliners hosts free Aloha Luau at SPEC

Students of Texas A&M University-Kingsville are encouraged to take part in a Saturday afternoon of free broomball, swimming and bowling at the Steinke Physical Education Center (SPEC).

The Edliners, a new student organization based in the College of Education, will host an Aloha Luau Saturday, Aug. 22, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Students of all majors can participate in a series of three tournaments taking place in the SPEC.

Teams of four to seven people, depending on event, will register at 11 a.m. in room 122 of Rhode Hall. The groups will then proceed to the SPEC to compete against each other in three events designed for fun as much as athletic ability. All events start at 12:30 p.m. and will be held throughout the day.

One of the events is broomball. This indoor hockey game for a seven-player team is played in socks and with brooms rather than hockey sticks. Games will start at 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m., with the final tournament at 2:30 p.m.

The second event will be held at the pool, for a swim meet for a six-person team that doesn’t ask its participants to be great swimmers. The swim events will be dog paddle and flutter board, or kick board, with races starting at 12:30 p.m. and 1 p.m., with the final at 3:30 p.m. In between each race, there will be a free swim where everyone can jump in and cool off.

The third event is a bowling tournament for four-people teams. Rounds start at 12:30 p.m., 1:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m., with the final tournament at 3:30 p.m.

Award ceremony will be held at 4:30 p.m., where the winning team members will receive a gift certificate.

Host organization Edliners wants the Aloha Luau to be just one of a number of weekend social events they offer A&M-Kingsville students in the coming months. The group has a primary goal of promoting teaching as a profession, while also providing service to the university and the community, and giving students more activities to do on the weekends.
