Summerfest

From the unofficial Duke TIP Wiki

Summerfest is Davidson's version of Quadfest. Since all the TIPsters live in one dorm (often Belk Residence Hall), it is harder to develop the sense of competition (except for the 2004 year, where they were split into four dorms). However, in 2011, TIPsters lived in Cannon and Sentelle dorms. Random RCs are assigned different colors. Teams are organized by combining RC Groups into 4 colors (red, blue, green, and yellow) (Four colors started only in the 2005 year, before there were only three: Blue, Red, and Green). Red, grellow (grey and yellow), blue, and green are the official colors of Summerfest. The staff at Davidson also prepare water balloons which are unloaded, along with water guns, on TIPsters or other staff during the afternoon. Pretty much the most fun part of Summerfest is soaking your friends with bottles of freezing cold water. Try to sneak up behind them for maximum fun(:

Whatever color wins overall in the different events also wins gloating rights over the other colors, usually just for the rest of the day.
