Aggies building crews are gearing up for the second Bonfire in Robertson County.

The first instructions on cutting and preparing logs for stack were issued on Saturday at First Cut.

More than 300 Aggie students made their way out to Robertson County location.

Bryan Lane of Student Bonfire and a senior "Red Pot " said aside from sharing a unique experience, bonfire allows upperclassmen to teach up-and-coming Aggies how to lead and continue on the tradition.

"We still believe this is one of the greatest traditions A&M has ever had, Lane said. “We teach the freshmen leadership that come out. First they follow as freshmen and as sophomores they can get into leadership positions."

This year’s Burn is scheduled for November 17. The Robertson County Bonfire is still deemed an unsanctioned event by Texas A&M University.
