LIGHTNING LEGION:

CLUB/OVERVIEW: 
The Lightning Legion Student Fan Organization is Cosby’s biggest and easiest club to be a part of! We support all Cosby sports, seasons and other events while making it fun to be a fan! There is no requirement to be a member. When you come to an event, we make it fun! With the membership, you get the Legion t-shirt and fan scarf! We sponsor tailgates, fan buses and try to have games and food as often as possible.

It is a great way to meet people and have fun doing it!

HIGHLIGHTS: 
We have theme nights, like the Beach-Out and Workout Night. We provide our Legion Paint Zone for students to get ready for Varsity Football Games. We do organized chants and music to make the fan experience the same across all sports. We provide fan buses to away games. We provide dum-dums, along with chants and music for the bus to make it like a mobile student section!

TIME COMMITMENT:

There is no time requirement to be a member of the Legion! We want you to come when you can, and when you do we make it great. We meet every second Wednesday of each month to learn new chants and update on upcoming events. Just follow on Twitter, announcements and our Website for info if you can't make our meetings.

MEMBERSHIP REQUIREMENTS: 
Our club is open to all students of all grades and interests! The only requirement is an interest in meeting new people and helping to create a fun, exciting environment at Cosby events. We have events throughout the year, so even if you play a sport or are in band or in drama, you can still be a part of the Legion.

HIGHLIGHTS:
At the beginning of every year, an entire meeting is dedicated to our "Sorting Hat" celebration. All students are divided into four houses- loosely based upon those in the Harry Potter universe.

We play a lot of games. In addition to trading card games, we play many party/ social games. We celebrate the monthly full moon by partaking in a game of "Werewolf." If you don't know what it is about- come check us out. We also play "The Match Game," which is based on the old game show- but only with Sci-Fi scenarios.

We also have participated in other activities- some of which include: trivia, capture the flag, white elephant gift exchange at our annual holiday party, a massive egg near spring break, May the Fourth be with you celebration, learning to write Tolkien's Elvish, and our annual "For the Love of Sci-Fi" party. We also plan to offer some of the following workshops for the 2015-2016 school year: "How to tie a bow tie," sushi-making, Dr. Who tea parties, and group painting.

Major events that we participate in are the annual homecoming parade, and the Chesterfield Library System's annual Comic-Con (at which we have a booth).
