Denver '96 : The Official Online Band Trip Photo Album

April 11-14, 1996

Welcome to my latest project, the Online Photo Album. I've created this so that many of the students who participated in our band trip could easily look back at the wonderful times they had.

In another attempt at the group photo above, Chris Tasler (in background) decides to pose down for the camera. Everyone else - (from left to right) Mary McWeeny, Chris Knudson, Brenda Birkland, Ruben Newell and Arkay King - still happily poses like normal.

You know those vortex thingies? Those things where you shoot your change down a ramp and watch it spin in circles until you never see it again? Well, (from left to right) Sarah Pliner, Eric Newell, Mary Mcweeny and Brenda Birkland have just been suckered by one of those vortices.

Mary McWeeny and Leah Honeyman get caught in double jeopardy. Not only are they trapped in one of those one-walled jails, but it's also torrentially snowing! Sounds like my idea of fun...
