NEWSOME HIGH SCHOOL HOMECOMING
Newsome High School Homecoming
It was a dark and rainy night but 13 corvettes converged on Newsome High School to serve as chariots for the homecoming king and queen candidates. It was raining pretty hard when we got there before the opening kickoff, but by half time it was a DOWNPOUR!! There was no lightning so the game was played. The half time ceremony was pretty much a disaster for the kids, but the Sun 'n Fun group enjoyed the comaraderie of putting up with the weather. After circling the field with the candidates at half time (no tops down of course), we deposited the kids at tents set up to shelter them from the rain and we made our grand exit. Miserable weather, but we Corvetteers had fun anyhow - as we always do when we're together.
Lining up in the rain
13 Vettes in a row. What a sight.
And there's Nancy. She was out in the rain all night. It must have taken her 3 days to dry out
The teams are ready
Making pre-half time adjustments
Nancy "The General" getting everyone organized.
Finally settled into our holding spot
The homecoming queen hopefuls are ready . . . soggy, but ready
The homecoming candidates pass in review. But who knows who's in which car???
We circled the field to reach our "hold" area, then again when the
"hold" area was changed.
And the "crowd" is ready for a football game
OK, home team. Good luck. We're outta' here. They won by 1 point.
