Proud Moments in Wesleyan’s History #1: Shredding

This year I made it my new year’s resolution to take up skateboarding (or rather longboarding, but for the purposes of this post skateboarding will do just fine). I bought a board, stood on it once or twice, and played Tony Hawk 2 for a half hour. I was ready. Then I arrived on campus and there was a foot of snow. Then it snowed another two feet, so, inspired by Sheek‘s post of yore, I turned to old Argi to investigate the history of the noble sport at Wesleyan and see what this first Intercollegiate Tournament of 1965 was all about.
