Simultaneous Selfie Event to Occur This Friday at 9:00AM, Pacific Time
On Friday, May 24, we will have our first Simultaneous Selfie event.
What is that, you ask?
This is your chance to let everybody know what you look like right NOW! No special lighting, no studio props, no fancy cameras.
Just you and your cell phone and the rest of the class, participating in a unique, fun and possibly embarrassing experience.
Well, absolutley NOTHING if you don’t choose to join in with the rest of us.
However, if you decide to participate in this ground-breaking event then here is all you need to do:
At 9:00AM on Friday, take a photo of yourself with your cell phone. Then login to the website, go to the What’s New area and upload your photo in the comment area. Make sure to add a caption or comment — like perhaps telling us who is in the photo. That may help. It you would like to add more explanatory info, then fine. But the emphasis is on the up to date selfie that you have just taken.
Then the fun starts. Depending on our group participation, the photos should start flowing into the What’s New page. To refresh the page you may need to go back to the Home Page and then return to the What’s New areas. Or just refresh the page, if you know how to do that.
Can I have somebody else take my picture with the cell phone? (I have short arms). A. Yes
Can I take the photos ahead of time and just upload it at 9:00AM on Friday? A. Yes, but keep it recent. That’s the whole point. This is 2019, not 1968.
Can I take one of somebody else and say that it is me? A. Yes. But why would anybody ask such a question?
Are there any restrictions on where I can take the selfie? A. No, as long as you are in it we really don’t care where it is taken. In fact, we look forward to interesting and outlandish photographic settings.
Now, is it possible to get 50 people participating in the Simultaneous Selfie? We’ll find out.
An Announcement from Steve Tinsley
Did you know that you can post announcements to this website? They go through a quick approval process but it is a great way to get the word out. Here’s an announcement from Steve:
“Sorry I missed the reunion-my move to Kentucky was planned for quite awhile. Wondering if anybody is planning to attend the Indy 500 next weekend. I'll be there (my second) and would love to have a mini reunion in turn 4, or any other suitable location. There's a legends gathering Saturday-rick mears should be there. Haven't seen him for 20 years-came a long way from the planz park days! Hope there's still some die hard race fans-message me if so...”
It is good to hear from Steve again and we missed him at the Oct 2018 reunion.
Which Group, Team, Squad, Staff, Club or other organization had the highest percentage of people SHOW UP for the 50th Reunion???
Was it the Cheer/Song/Yell/Spirit people?
How about the Photostats?
Perhaps the Tennis team?
How about the senior officers and council members?
How about the seniors on the football team? Baseball? Wrestlers?
Was it the GAA people?
Or the French Club? The Girl’s League?
How about the Executive Board? (Hey, I just realized that I was on that!)
Track? Cross Country? Rebel Yell staff? Merrimac staff?
Powderpuff Bowl Participants?
It could have been the Political Action Club, right?
Lettermen’s Club? Or how about that large group of people who never felt like joining anything?
The Band always had a lot of spirit — could it be they who showed up in droves and took over the event?
I know. How about the California Scholarship Federation (CSF)? You would think that they’d be smart enough to come to these events.
Could it have been the Folk Club? That’s a friendly bunch of kids.
This is a stretch, but could it have been the Industrial Arts Club?
You will get the definitive answer soon.
Hello South High Class of 1968!
