Anyway, he was telling me that they’ve been having unseasonably warm weather in Montana (in the 50s) and they’ve also been trying to drum up publicity for Chi Alpha, so they decided to stage a mock protest.
Actual slogans chanted:
What do we want? Winter! When do we want it? Now!
Heck no, we want snow, global warming’s got to go!
Powder to the people!
The protest wound up being covered by the media and made it into the AP wire, so that the picture you see above was copied from the San Francisco Chronicle.
Now that’s a creative (and successful) publicity stunt.
Be sure to let me know if you ever have any ideas like that for our group.
