On Tuesday, 9 April, 2019, North Forsyth High School’s MCJROTC program held their annual Mess Night. Due to unfavorable weather it was moved into the classroom, however, the event is typically held in the area of the obstacle course behind the track. The purpose of a mess night is to reflect upon and celebrate the accomplishments of the program throughout the year, it is also a time to look back at the fun times and mistakes made and have a good laugh. The Mess Night consists of lighthearted competition in the form of a watermelon eating competition and other activities as well as finishing it with a ceremonial toast to the program, the Marine Corps, and the instructors out of respect.
