Two months of quarantine bring a lot of different ways to keep things interesting. Ryan Sampson, a robbed senior, shares what his brother, Jared, has been doing to put the “social” back in “social distancing”: Car Games.
“The basic concept is that you show up in your own personal ‘self isolation chamber’(car), and play games by listening to his instructions on zoom, and using our lights. We played a trivia game where Jared would read a question, and you would signal left or right for your answer. If you got it right, you drove forward one parking space. If you got all the way to Jared’s car, you won.”
The event was quite a blowout—the cops even showed up.
“In total there were about fifteen cars there, or about 30 people. The cops even showed up, but Jared explained what we were doing, and they left,” says Ryan.
Jared Sampson has also been finding other ways to entertain himself and others, like special front door tic tac toe games and balcony concerts. Ryan explains what each looks like,
“He taped tic tac toe boards to people’s doors, and went around every couple hours to make the next move. He also did a balcony concert on Sunday with his roommates where he played recorder, one of his roommates played piano, and one played guitar.”
There’s been word that “Car Games 2” will be happening Friday, May 1st at the Lavell Edwards Stadium west parking lot, 8:30 pm sharp for anyone else who wants to join. Many more fun ideas from Jared Sampson to come to put the “social” back in “social distancing.”
