The morning of April 5, Young Americans for Liberty at the University of West Florida started preparing our table for the two-day festival at which we'd be tabling.
Festival on the Green at UWF is a community-wide event that's usually heavily attended and popular around the area, more so with community members than with students. What a perfect opportunity to bridge the gap between campus and community activism!
We arrived on campus carrying our boxes of tabling supplies, our easel (which is, for the record, harder to put together than you'd think!), and our Pin the Drone on the Warzone poster.
It was cloudy out, unseasonably and freezing cold to us Floridians at around 50 degrees, but the real problem became apparent as soon as we began trying to set up our tent cover: the wind was awful!
Every few minutes, wind gusts would send all our supplies flying, and we'd have to chase them down. We were able to be creative with tape and pens and soon had a table setup that stayed put (but would make Morton Blackwell shudder), but with only two members there, it became apparent that Pin the Drone would not work right then.
