SACRAMENTO, Calif., USA - Writers from three classes converged on the University Union Wednesday, taking notes, interviewing and generally acting like journalists.
There were even quite a few reporter's notebooks in evidence.
The Phlagleblast was a gold mine for column ideas with thousands of students wandering about, exhibits, games, and plenty of food.
For the news writers, the task was a little more daunting. Their assignment was to gather enough information for a news story, a story that the class will put together as a group Monday. The fun part will be to see what different details the reporters picked up in their conversations and interviews.
One person/exhibitor who got plenty of attention - from both the classes and other students attending - was the 'balloon guy' who made animals figures which adorned heads all over the union.
The balloon guy told me he made more than 200 of the figures. And I won't put his name here - let's see how many of the students got it.
Here's a short video of him at work:
'Well, you know. A man of your age?'
