The HUB was hopping last Friday night for the Mario Kart Wii Tournament! We had several Wiis, TVs, and a lot of excited teens revved up and ready to show off their Mario Kart skills. They bounced their karts on the mushrooms of Mushroom Gorge, dodged as many blue shells as possible (a difficult task), and attempted to not fall off of the Rainbow Road.
Alas, there can only be one winner in a tournament and he was lucky enough to walk away with a sweet NES controller messenger bag AND bragging rights!
Our second place winner won a Mario costume - giant mustache and all!
Mario Karting isn't all we did at the program either. While many were competing to stay in the tournament, others were creating Mario-inspired sweets out of Airheads. They were colorful, very sticky, and delicious!
All in all, it was a great Friday night! I mean there was pizza, candy, games, and friends! What more can you ask for?
