Christmas tree sales for 1986 started on December in and ran through December 15. A unique blend of participants involved in sales this year made the two week exercise quite interesting. The marketing team consisted of several juniors and seniors led by freshman Bryce Duncan. This creative team, between doing the usual tasks of unloading, unwrapping trees and clearing the needles around the area, started several unusual recreational experiences. These were in the form of tie rating, designing sailboats for Lake Laverne, and for all you men out there-- leg rating. This particular exercise was facilitated by the unseasonably warm weather that occurred during the sales (I couldn't believe it, someone up there near the Pearly Gates actually listened, so I couldn't get thrown in a snow bank!!).
