Welcome to Jamaica! Each division was assigned a country and our division was assigned Jamaica! So prepare your Jamaican lingo, practice your Jamaican accent, and feel free to bring items that represent Jamaica!* *You may also bring items from your own culture if you wish to! Chants Whenever a speaker says “Jamaica/Division 4, how do you feel?” we could respond with “We feel good mon” or something like that. Whatever floats your boat A fun thing to do before DCON is to plan chants with your club/ division. These could be said at the start of DCON or at the end. Imagine how great it would be if 20 people in unison shouted “Division 4” with pride. We don’t want to be the quiet division, so get psyched and bring your Key Club spirit!
