Ever wonder why there are so many vehicles in the CB parking lot with cones on top of them?
A group of CB students meet up in their vehicles but something stands out: they each have bright orange cones on the top of the car. It is a symbol of what they call “Cone Life”.
Cone Life was introduced by Zach Steving (’16) and soon it became a hot commodity at Christian Brothers. The idea came from an Instagram page that features pictures of cool trucks parked next to cones.
“I decided to bring a cone to school and put it in my parking space to reserve it,” senior Zach Steiving said. “Ever since that day, the cone life has evolved.”
One member of Cone Life Braeden Bourke(’16) describes cone life as, “a collection of random pictures of cones with the people’s cars”.
Club creator Zach Stieving describes Cone Life as “a brotherhood where all cars and trucks park together in the CB parking lot”
“It’s just another trend with a twist,” the senior says.
To join this club, all you need is a cone and to display it on your car or truck. But it wasn’t always this easy. But as the group grew in popularity, people with cars wanted to join the club. However not all people wanted cars in the group, this disagreement led to the “Great Conepromise”.
The “Great Conepromise” states that if you have a car in Cone Life, you must display your cone on the top of your cars at all times in order to participate.
Zach now says that they welcome all vehicles, from mud trucks all the way to “city slickin’ Prius roamers”.
With this Conepromise behind them, Cone Life hopes to reestablish it’s popularity within the Christian Brothers community. According to senior Zach Steving, since opening up to cars, they’ve had numerous people join Cone Life.
With this ever growing group, expect to recognize them more easily.
“members are painting our cones and customizing them to our taste,” Zach says. “The Cone Life is just starting”.
