Set in the large gym, the event was staged on the same day as the Homecoming game against Saddleback.
The event was also a promoter for the Homecoming dance which would be held the next day. The event was hosted by Jennifer Daley, who took the role of Dorothy, and Kristi Adams, who played the good witch.
When asked about paticipating in the games, future Homecoming King Kody Kolina said, “I thought it was really cool. Usually I’m up in the stands looking, but actually being in the middle of all of it was pretty exciting.”
During the rally, the different classes were told that whoever held the most spirit, which is apparently shown by yelling the loudest, would have their class banner held up. This led to constant yelling by all.
One attendee who has chosen to stay anonymous said, “It was good pretty good, but people got loud and they didn’t do a good job of calming them.” The rally also had a dance by the Black Student Union and a version of Gangnam Style by the dance team.
