Punk Rockers, Pyramid Builders Compete
Purple hair, bedsheets and sport-
ing apparel of all kinds passed
through the Rocky corridors during
the week preceding homecoming.
Hats and Shades Day kicked off the
traditional "Spirit Week". Partici-
pating students wore bowlers, der-
bies and baseball caps while others
wore sunglasses of varied styles.
With golf clubs, tennis rackets and
football jerseys students expressed
their athletic preferences. Sports
Day followed the wild and crazy
Punkf0cean Pacific Day.
Quad-City hair supply companies
had a field day as Rocky students
flocked to the stores purchasing
hair sprays in an array of odd colors
and textures. Punk hair cuts of the
brightest oranges and reds were ac-
cented by the outlandish clothing
worn by the punkers. Dog chains,
leather skirts and jackets and shriv-
eled cottonwear dominated the reg-
ular school day attire. Yet those who
were conservative in nature wore
the Ocean Pacific T's and pants.
Placing second agrees with the senior class.
Larry Harrison, Tina Plechaty, Lori Wil-
liamson, Jill Robb and Dawn Bosworth join
the float in the ride through the parade.
Thursday had been the most casual
and "laid back" of the five days.
Long johns, night shirts and bed
sheets displayed bedtime apparel to
the student body. Friday ended the
week of craziness and fun as crim-
son and gold was worn by many stu-
dents about the campus.
Spirit Week lent excitement to
the everyday ritual of hot lunches
and brown bags. It began with hu-
man building blocks forming pyra-
mids in the fastest time possible. At
first glance the participants in the
three legged race may have looked a
little strange, yet on that day ever-
ything was abnormal as the partici-
pants hobbled their way to the fin-
Spirit Week had not just been a
time of weird clothes and maiden
races, but a five day event where
Rocky students showed their spirit
and pride in the school they love.
Court members are as follows, Joel Keim,
Brynn Sheley, William Clay, Eric Lundgren,
