Teachers are cracking down on flipping bottles during school hours, but it has still found a home at Bottle Flipping Club.

This new club created by freshman Luke Cox gives students tips and instructions on how to flip a bottle and land it upright. The club meets weekly in club sponsor and Social Studies teacher William Staal’s room, B202.

“A lot of people like bottle flipping, so I thought I’d make it a club so that people could come and hang out and bottle flip,” Cox said. “It gives [students] a safe place to go after school and meet new friends.

The club met for the first time on Sept. 14, and plans to meet every other week on Thursday afternoons.

“This club is benefiting students because flipping water bottle’s in class can be a nuisance, and this gives [students] an outlet for it, that they can do it in a controlled setting after school,” Staal said.

At meetings, club members will flip bottles have contests for who can do the best trick and the founders plan to teach students proper technique for flipping a bottle.

“To be honest, [the club draws attention] mostly towards freshman boys. They enjoy it, but there were a lot of other kids [at the meeting]. It gives them a group of like-minded people that enjoy doing the same thing,” Stahl said.

Bottle flipping clubs next meeting is Oct. 6 and for more information, contact Staal here.
