    It’s Laker Spirit Club, not Laker Show-up Club. Attendance is irrelevant, participation is key. I would rather have 10 people who cheer constantly than have 1,000 who sit, talk, and text. T-shirts don’t evoke participation, just attendance. This promotion failed; it didn’t encourage active participation. LSC still misses the point.

      Attendance is far from irrelevant. It is the major factor when it comes to athletic events. In order to increase the spirit around campus, first students need to get to the events. Once we have established a reoccurring fan base that dedicated their time towards attending athletic events, from there we can bring the spirit that is needed during games. How can you rationally say that the promotion failed? Prior to the blackout, LSC was fading away. With the blackout, it raised awareness to the students of the organization and its mission to increase spirit in athletic events. I did not see you tonight at the Green Out Gannon game. Not only was there a large attendance, but also active participation. Instead of basing your ideals of Laker Spirit Club on one athletic event, try coming to the other sporting events to where LSC reaches out to increase spirit.
