Pies in the Face

In December 2006, the 4th CMMC wanted to raise money for the battalion Christmas party.  So some NCOs got most of the battalion together for a "Pie in the Face" contest. They mixed up some whipped cream, sugar, and Crisco goop and put it into pie trays.

Anyone could "nominate" someone else that they wanted to give a pie in the face to, and bid an amount of money they would pay to do that. The nominee could up the bid.  The bidding continued until one side quit.  The losing side got the pie in the face.

LTC Brindley couldn't afford to bid for all the staff so he put cards in my hat with a name on each one. He also added a "wild card" with all their names on it.  What they didn't know was that there was already a wild card hidden in my hat which he could find and pull out.
