THON 2011-002

It may look as if these THON OPP crew members are just relaxing, but they're really performing a very important role, making sure the mats being positioned for the THON dance floor don't move. According to one OPP crew member, placement must be exact -- if it's off by even an inch when they get to the stage at the front of the arena, they'll have to tear up the entire floor and start over. The crew has been on the job since 5 a.m. THON kicks off at 4 p.m. today (Feb. 18) and runs through 6 p.m. Sunday.
