Battle on the Border will occur on Sunday, September 17th, 2017 at the International Peace Gardens. Fifty students and staff from Brandon University travel to the International Peace Gardens to battle fifty Minot State University students and staff in an epic battle on the border of dodge ball. Students tour the gardens, play dodge ball, enjoy a BBQ meal and then return to campus. (Teams will be made up of 5 males and 5 females to each team. If you have a team mate request, please note that on your registration form.)

Travel to the International Peace Gardens, the BBQ lunch, a Battle on the Border t-shirt and your transportation home (don’t worry we won’t leave you there) are FREE! All you need to do is come and have fun!

You will need a passport or Government Issued photo I.D. to attend and must show it before boarding the bus and need to sign a waiver to secure your spot on this highly coveted Orientation Event! Please fill out the BOTB Sign up and Waiver 2017 (Coming Soon!) and return to Trevor in the Student Services, AE McKenzie (there are also blank ones for you there). In the past we have taken 100 students and this year we are only taking 50; so please get your forms in as soon as possible! If you have any team mate requests, please note those on your form and we will do our best to accommodate you.

*While the waiver states that you must be 18+ years to attend, we will accept an email from your parents to the email address orientation@brandonu.ca giving you permission to attend. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that their parents send the email and confirm that it has been received by the Orientation Coordinator.
