Some of the Laurels and Pelicans headed out into their fundraiser at Panteria with boffer weapons that were built specifically for them. These peers proposed “specialty weapons” which they would get to use only if they raised enough money. The weapons added humor to the already lively bouts.
For more information about the fundraiser, see the Gazette article Laurels and Pelicans Defeat the Weather and www.laurelsvspelicans.com.
