Buc Week tradition unlimited uc Week is traditionally a time when students set No limits in demonstrating their school spirit. The en- tire week is composed of fun, frivolity and enthusiasm intended to boost school spirit and pride. The week's activities center around Friday, Satur- day and Sunday with the Buc Dance, the Oswego-Fulton football game and the Powder Puff football game. Buc Week began on Tuesday, October 6, 1987, with "Hat and Shades Day." Students came to school with various headgear and ocular paraphernalia. A yearbook poll showed that "Hat and Shades Day" was one of the most popular Buc Week days, perhaps because students can outfit themselves to look bad, wacky or just plain different. On Wednesday, the most popular event of Buc Week took place: Nerd Day. Students set no limits in dressing in outrageous, out-of-date clothes and ridiculous mismatches. Everyone's favorite nerd was perennial geek Kevin "Yosh" Sanbonmatsu. Accord- ing to Sanbonmatsu, Nerd Day, in addition to being just place fun, gave him "an opportunity to portray school spirit, which I think is lacking at OHS." Although many students did not parti- cipate in Nerd Day, it was one of the funniest and most anticipated of all Buc Week activities. Although Raider Traitor Day was not as popular as the other events of Buc Week, its signifigance was not diminished. As the rivalry in sports between Oswego and Fulton in- tensifies, Raider Traitor Day allows students to turn red for a day and become Fulton fans. Despite outward apearances, however, most students who participated in Raider Traitor Day were full-blooded Oswego fans. Blue and White day was the last school day in Buc Week. Dressing in school colors, students first attended the Pep Rally at Leighton School to cheer on our athletes. Blue and White Day symbolized the pride Oswego High students have for their school and their willingness to display it. Buc Week remained an important part of developing school pride at OHS, as students actively participated in school events. Many people heve suggested that Buc Week be expanded to include other days such as Punk Day, Pajama Day, Sport Day and Reverse Day. Whatever changes are made, it can be assured that students will set no limits in enthusiasm and Sl1pp0I't.4byDarren Crovitz Soccer player Andres LeBaudy and Cheerleader Caryn Miller kiss at the Buc Week Pep Rally. 12 Q Set No Limits

Marching Bucs set no limits in excellence. arching Band season star- ted in the early summer with members practicing on Tuesday and Thursday evenings during July and August. The annual band camp in August was the culmination of the summer rehearsals with members rehearsing all day for a week in the scorching heat. Despite the high temperatures, Band Camp was dubbed a succes by Director William Palange. By the time school opened all that remained was to refine the music and marching routines learned during the summer in preparation for their first competition. Under the direction of Drum Major Lisa Herrald and Assistant Drum Major Kristen Wlazlo, the Marching Buccaneers blended the old with the new. The program opened with New York State of Mind from the 1982 sea- son, featuring soloist Jinri Dumas, followed by the swashbuckling sounds of Seahawk from the 1983 season. Horn soloist Andrea Parker introduced the new with John Williams' beautiful Luke and Leia. The band closed its show with another John Williams spectacular, Theme from Superman. Soloists Bill Carnal and Keith Hinrichs added the final touches to a specta- cular and exciting ending. New uniforms added the visual sparkle which complemented the music. The first show of the season took place at Cicero-North Syracuse with an intense and crowd pleasing show. In October the band took a 12 hour bus trip to West Virginia University in Morgantown, West Virginia to partici- pate in the MBA Eastern Regional Field Band Competition. Performing on Friday and Saturday nights, the band entered finals on Saturday with a second place position, and earned a third place at the end of finals. The band ended the season by competing in the New York State Field Band Con- ference Championship Show in November. They garnered a 4th place honor that placed them along with some of the best bands in America. With a successful season behind, the next challenge facing the Marching Bucs was participation in April 1988 in the Orange Blossom Festival in Orlando, Florida. Director William Palange hoped to retain the title of superior band that the band earned in 1984 when it competed in this national event. KEd'itor's Note: Coverage of the Orange Blossom Festival will be inclu- ded 'in Spring Scene '88, the supplement to this volumejyby Eben Norfleet The Marching Bucs execute a flawless move at the state championship in the Carrier Dome.
