An annual winter event designed to help students get out and de-stress has been postponed due to snow, something ironically.
The University of British Columbia hosts a snowball fight every year across the campus in Vancouver, but a snowstorm caused the organizers to postpone the ice fight.
In a Facebook post, those who organized the “battle plan” said the event moved to Thursday at 12:30 p.m.
Classes were canceled at the UBC Point Gray campus, as well as in other post-secondary schools in the area, due to the bad weather conditions on Wednesday.
The snowball fight will take over the Main Mall between the Sauder and the chemical buildings, organizers wrote on Facebook.
“Whether you have spent the week of the study program, have taken a long vacation or are already presenting work, we believe it is time for a break between classes. What better way to celebrate an early snowfall than one of our favorite traditions of the campus! “
The organizers hoped that thousands would attend the “final battle”, and joked that it was the perfect opportunity to “join that person in a conference that declares things in the form of questions, provide some reward to the friend who ‘forgot’ his secret gift of Santa or deal with the roommates who stole leftovers from the fridge. “
Those who want to participate in the “serious snowy confrontation” are asked to line up on both sides of the mall at 12:15 p.m. The next 15 minutes are to gather ammunition, and the first snowballs fly at 12:30.
