On Friday, April 18, the Boise State chapter of Young Americans for Liberty put on our War on Youth Event. We started at 10:00 a.m. In the quad and stayed there until about 2:30. The event was pretty successful, and although due to the wind the banner had to be tacked to the ground it turned lots of heads and started a few conversations, all of which were in support. We handed out a fair number of pocket constitutions and other pieces of literature.
The item that got the most attention was the Debt Pong game. People seemed to enjoy it and wanted to play even if they had little or no interest in YAL or the banner, but we managed to use it to hand out some more literature and start a few more conversations. We managed to get seven sign-ups! All in all, it was a fairly successful day despite the wind conspiring against us and our many pieces of paper! We plan on continuing to use the Debt Pong game and the banner along with all of the other materials provided to us over the summer to recruit freshmen and those who are attending summer courses.Published in
