On the last Wednesday (7/28/10) of TIP East Term 2 2010, the Llama was kidnapped, right before her flying. The 2nd Years of Alspaugh felt that the Llama should be for all Tipsters, not just the 4th Years, (despite the fact that the Llama has /always/ been for all tipsters...) so they decided to steal the Llama (Code Name: T-Shirt), co-conspired by Jakob With a K and (Elizabeth) Lizzie T. During lunch, at about 12:30 or so, Lizzie T lured Alli outside to take a picture with the Llama in front of the Duke statue. Stephan was a distraction; he pretended to steal the Llama, but that was the "stealing" Alli thought would happen. While taking the pic, Lizzie T tossed the Llama to Bryan. An unidentifiable 4th Year decided to hold on to Bryan, but as planned, the blockers, Jon, Colin, and Chandler, pulled the 4th Year off of Bryan. Bryan ran into Alspaugh (where John the RC AKA Lil Tasty was) where Sofia held open the door, and Kathryn waited in her room to hide the Llama. Bryan decided to go to his room to hide the Llama instead of Kathryn's. This plan was very successful, but one RC and 2 TAs (who will remain un-named) threatened to expel all who were involved in the Llama stealing (which they could not do, but the Tipsters did not know that until after). The Tipsters were forced to return the Llama ten minutes later. The 2nd Years were infuriated, because they stole the Llama fair and square (EDIT: that may be the most ironic thing I've ever heard..), and they had the approval of many of the RCs, but of course none of the tipsters'. This kidnapping led to the 'NEW' 2nd Year tradition of the FAB Sash and the Pimp/Bro Stick Bropack, given to by Lil Tasty. Both traditions soon thankfully died.
Tipsters Actually Involved (All Were 2nd Years - with the exception of Lil Tasty):
- Elizabeth (Lizzie T)
- Jakob With a K
The Original FAB Sash Posse
- Elizabeth Trinh (Lizzie T)
- Lizzie T could not go back to East TIP Term 2 in 2011, so she handed the sash over to Sofia Shapiro.
- Sofia Shapiro handed the sash over to Saara before Duke TIP of 2011, because Sofia Shapiro will be going to Duke West in 2011.
- Saara is the current holder of the sash.
- Sofia Shapiro
FAB Sash Girls
2010: Lizzie T (who gave the Sash to Sofia Shapiro to pass on in 2011) and Sofia Shapiro
The tradition is for the 2nd/3rd Years. The FAB Sash Girls (2nd Years) keep the FAB Sash for a full year. When the FAB Sash Girl comes back as a 3rd year, she and the FAB Sash Girls pass the Sash on to a 2nd Year in the 2nd Week, where the 2nd Year keeps the FAB Sash alive and continues the tradition.
The Pimp/Bro Stick
Both the FAB Sash and the Pimp/Bro Stick (Bropack) are interdependent on each other.
