Can they pull it off?

On Saturday, UC Davis students will be found playing a campuswide game of Capture the Flag, meeting on the West Quad at 1 p.m.

“When we say campuswide, we mean campuswide,” said ASUCD Senator Justin Goss, a co-director of the event.

As part of his ASUCD platform, Goss promised a campus Capture the Flag game. He has partnered with Maxwell Kappes, the organizer of Humans vs. Zombies, a campuswide game.  Kappes has experience in coordinating these types of events both in Davis and at his junior college.

“Capture the Flag is much more simple; everyone knows the rules. More people can play,”  Kappes said.

The game is open to all students. Equipment will be provided and maps and rules are posted on the Facebook page.

“We are anticipating around 80 people. Next time, we intend to have even more — around 200,” Kappes said.

This is a day-long campus event, and free for students to participate in.

“ASUCD entertainment brings groups together in a great way. The Entertainment Council does concerts, but these types of events allow students to interact together, rather than as consumers,” Goss said.

Goss and Kappes are very excited for the event, along with those who are planning to participate.

“I’ve been involved in Humans vs. Zombies since first quarter. When Max [Kappes] introduced Capture the Flag I had to do it. I am excited to have such a big group,” said Brittney Booth, a senior English major.
