BSD inside

Publication YearIssue Date 

If you want to get into Bermuda Shorts Day this year, you better plan to come early. Due to a forecast calling for sleet, BSD will be inside.

"The reason that the weather affects us is because all the PA and band equipment--like generators, speakers, amps and subs--can't actually be put out if there's a 30 per cent chance of precipitation," said Students' Union vice-president events Richard Freeman, noting that's the policy of Allstar, the company supplying the equipment.

Instead, the event will be held in the Den/Black Lounge, MacEwan Hall and MacEwan Hall Ballroom.

According to Campus Security, 9,000 wristbands were given away. The original capacity of BSD was 4,400 but the move inside means a change to 2,300.

Freeman lamented that the change wasn't ideal, but is looking forward to the big day.

"The lineup we have this year is really wicked," he said. "With the three venues open, there will be three vibes and atmospheres [meaning we] can cater to a lot of people's wants."
