Buggy rolls report 10/29-10/30
Buggy is a Carnegie Mellon tradition which has existed since 1920. The sport, which is practiced throughout the academic year, culminates in an annual series of relay races held on each year’s Raceday during Spring Carnival, in which teams vie for the title of “Champion.” The Buggy Rolls Report column reports on the buggies and roll counts for all of the teams which attend the freeroll practices (“rolls”) each weekend organized by the Carnegie Mellon Sweepstakes Committee. All of the information reported in the column is provided by the Carnegie Mellon Sweepstakes Committee.
After two whole weekends without rolls, buggy was back in (almost) full-force last weekend. The weather remained clear for both Saturday and Sunday morning, but due to quorum not being reached, there rolls were only held on Saturday.
In total, seven teams rolled on Saturday, Oct. 29. In roll order, they were: SigNu (Sigma Nu), CIA (The Carnegie Involvement Association), SAE (Sigma Alpha Epsilon), Apex, SigEp (Sigma Phi Epsilon), SDC (The Carnegie Mellon Student Dormitory Council), and SPIRIT.
SigNu rolled one buggy, Jager, which got three rolls in.
CIA rolled three buggies: Roadrunner, Tempest, and Kingfisher. Each buggy got three rolls in, with Roadrunner and Kingfisher’s roll counts being split between two drivers.
SAE rolled one buggy, Eileen, which got two rolls in.
Apex rolled three buggies: Phoenix, Firefly, and Solaris. Each buggy got three rolls in.
SigEp rolled two buggies: Kraken and Barracuda. Kraken got three rolls in, while Barracuda got one roll in.
SDC rolled two buggies: Avarice and Inferno. Each buggy got two rolls in.
SPIRIT rolled two buggies: Kingpin II and Mapambazuko. Each buggy got two rolls in.
There were no rolls held on Sunday, Oct. 30, due to quorum not being reached.
