Friday Follies: Pucker Up

It’s not going to be easy in that outfit.

It’s undated but I bet one of you knows.

    We were wearing these uniforms when I started in the MOB in 1974. There are two faces I recognize in the photo so I put this picture as 1974, possibly 1975 if we had not gone to the more casual MOB uniforms yet.

    And we all know someone who still has one of those uniforms. He has to wear an ice vest under it (or maybe a Camelback.)

      How many would you like…
      As Lynn points out, ’75 was the last year these were worn.
      I’m going to guess that that is Carter Davis (’78) on the left, from the shape of the glasses, and he’s standing with other french horns (curious to see that there’s both a traditional double horn and a bell-front marching version held by our puckered subject, whose name is likely trapped in some rusty neuron).
      Carter’s presence corroborates Lynn’s placing this as ’74 or ’75.
      The clarinet player looks a bit like Kris Wingenroth, who started in ’73, and was in The MOB for 8 years, and later became the award-winning coach of the swim team.
      I can’t narrow it down any better than that, since I only have those two possible names.
      If Lynn wants to share other names with us, I can look them up, since I have the membership files from those years, as well as the attendance books.

      The uniforms sure looked better then than the do now.

      I’ve posted a link to this post on Carter’s FB page.
      We’ll see if it is him, and if he can identify anyone else.

    BTW, I don’t recall this picture at all.

    The guy with the mustache in the back, far right, is Michael Hindman who matriculated with me in 1972.

      I agree Fall 74 or 75 if we still had the old (which has now lost meaning in the change of uniforms down through the years) uniforms. Yes that is the left 1/3rd of my face on the lest. I recognize the other horns, but names are coming out of the either yet. I will let you know if they do.
