Wings plan and various other charity groups did an outstanding job selling drinks, hats and snacks throughout the afternoon. All four houses competed with intensity to try to gain points. The Relay events proved to be favorites among the crowd cheering for their houses to win. The Tug of war event saw Spenser, dominating in both the staff and student event. The staff relay on the other hand was a tough race, between all the houses, Fan were the eventual winners followed by Spenser, Grenville and Raleigh.
