Sabers Celebrate May the Fourth Come Join Us

Attention all Souhegan Students!

Do you Like Star Wars? Want to participate in a community event? Be a part of a fundraiser? Win prizes? 

You are cordially invited to May The 4th Souhegan Weekend! What is this you may ask? Well, it is a community event that Matthew Hinspeter, Clayton Thomas, and Vincent Hargreaves are running this weekend to not only boost community morale but to raise money for WHO (World Health Organization) to fight Covid 19! 

Now you may be thinking: Wow this sounds awesome, what kind of things are happening during this May The 4th Souhegan Weekend?  Well, thanks for asking! Below are some planned events for Saturday, Sunday and even Monday! 


Saturday: Prediction Brackets and raising money for the WHO!

To prepare for Monday’s event of deciding the best Star Wars movie through a series of intricately planned Instagram polls in a playoff-style elimination bracket.  On Saturday, we will be collecting prediction ballets. Every prediction ballet tagged with #MayThe4thSouheganWeekend will be entered in a raffle to win the grand prize which consists of a glow-in-the-dark “Last Jedi Snapback” and $20 to a charity of the winners choice.  If you would like to increase your chances of winning, then consider donating to Google’s fund for WHO, as it will net you an extra entry into the raffle (you can also donate separately if you do not wish to do a bracket and still be entered!). Just be sure to provide a receipt for that which you can put on your story with a hashtag or you can also DM Matt Hinspeter personally (@mattco2) with a receipt! Additionally, the boys will match the first $50 worth of donations that are tagged with #MayThe4thSouheganWeekend on Saturday! Here is the link to the bracket to print and fill out:


Sunday: Live Stream hosted by Matt H. with special student guests! (TBA)

On Sunday Matt will be holding a live stream on the Claw Instagram. We will be having multiple guests to debate their Star Wars opinions.  While the Livestream goes on, you can also still donate to WHO and share it on your story with the hashtag #MayThe4thSouheganWeekend, you may even be featured live! An official schedule will be posted on the Claw Instagram tomorrow night! 


Monday: Polling to decide what the best Star Wars Movie/TV Show is!

As you may know, Monday is May 4th, otherwise known as Star Wars Day!  The boys will be running one side of a Star Wars Single Elimination Bracket that includes 16 Star Wars Movies and TV shows! Both of their Instagrams will be public for the day, so you don’t even have to follow us to play along! Polling will start at 10:00 AM and finish at 12:00 AM. This will give each match up 2 hours for voting! Also (could we give a shout out to whoever’s prediction bracket is the closest to the actual results, as long as they go to Souhegan).
