    Homecoming 2010: "Steel and Glamour"

    co-written by Esther Lin and Debbie Jong

    The Homecoming Dance will be held on Saturday, Oct. 17 from 8 p.m. to 12 a.m. ASB members revealed some exclusive sneak previews of the dance location to eager students at the House of Representatives meeting on Thursday, Sept. 10 in the cafeteria. After showcasing several pictures of the exciting venue, ASB President Leah Wong announced that the theme for this year’s dance will be “Steel and Glamour.”

    Unlike previous years, this year's Homecoming game will be held on Oct. 23, one week after the Homecoming Dance. The football season schedule is set well in advance and an important band competition set for the subsequent day interfered with the original date of the Homecoming Dance. Thus, this year the Homecoming royalty will be announced at the dance instead of at the football game. The royalty students, elected by their peers, will be paraded around the track at the game, with the king and queen riding in the limo. This will be the final year this tradition can be carried out because at the end of this year the track will be under construction.

    During the all-school assembly on Sept. 11, students breathlessly waited for Leah to announce the Homecoming venue. However, there had been an unexpected turn of events. The dance was supposed to be held at Gotham Night Club in San Bernandino, but the facility “experienced an act of violence in recent weeks,” said Mr. John Tung. Upon learning of this news, ASB Executive Council members decided to move the dance location elsewhere, not wanting to take even the slightest risk that may endanger AHS students. After numerous phone calls and meetings with the event company, during which many possible venues were discussed including Disneyland Resort and Avalon Nightclub, ASB has confirmed the venue to be ____________________________. However, because of this sudden change of location, the original theme “Steel and Glamour” will be kept even though it does not suit the new venue.

    Junior President Jonathan Ma remains optimistic and declared, “Homecoming's going to be great, just like it was last year, the year before that, and so and so forth. The people we work with always make it happen, so my expectation is that it’s going to rock just like it always does.”

    ASB Vice President Julie Chung added, “We are definitely all working our best to make [Homecoming] unforgettable and fun!”

    FINAL DRAFT

    Homecoming 2010: "Steel and Glamour"
    Coming Home to Steel and Glamour
    Steeling the Night Away

    Co-written by Debbie Jong and Esther Lin

    On Thursday, Sept. 10, ASB Executive Council members revealed sneak previews of the Homecoming Dance location at the House of Representatives meeting in the cafeteria. After displaying posters of the gothic venue, ASB President Leah Wong announced that the theme for this year’s Homecoming will be “Steel and Glamour.” Junior Celeste Cheung noted that “construction and labor rather than glamour” first come to mind when steel is mentioned.

    The Homecoming Dance will be held on Saturday, Oct. 17 from 8 p.m. to 12 a.m. Unlike previous years, this year's Homecoming Game will be held on Friday, Oct. 23—one week after the dance—and cannot be changed because the football season schedule has already been set well in advance. The dance could have been on Oct. 24, but ASB members didn’t want Band members to miss out on Homecoming because of their important competition planned for that same day. Thus, the dance was moved to one week earlier to accommodate the musicians. Senior Marching Band member Ailsa Chiu appreciated this thoughtful arrangement and views it as simply “celebrating your birthday early.”

    This year, the Homecoming royalty will be announced at the dance instead of at the football game. The Homecoming royalty, elected by AHS students, will be paraded around the track at the game with the king and queen riding in a limo. This will be the last time this tradition can be carried out for years to come because soon the track will be consumed by construction.

    During the Sept. 11 all-school assembly, AHS students breathlessly waited for Leah to announce the Homecoming venue. However, there had been an unexpected turn of events. Gotham Night Club of San Bernandino, the original dance venue, “experienced an act of violence in recent weeks,” said Mr. John Tung. ASB members immediately decided to move the dance to a different facility.

    After numerous discussions with the event company, ASB finally announced during lunch on Sept. 18 that the new Homecoming venue will be the Wallis-Annenberg Building at the University of Southern California (USC). The California Science Center boasts that the Wallis-Annenberg Building, with its reflecting pool, bamboo garden and lily pond, “combines traditional beauty with contemporary fun” and is “both handsome and intimate.”

    Leah relayed this information to Executive Council and exuberantly described the building’s “beautiful wall composed entirely of sequins” and “the roof comprised of open-ended metal bars” that criss-cross above the dance floor and allow moonlight to filter into the building. Delighted with the new venue, she believes that it takes the “Steel and Glamour” theme to a whole new level.

    ASB Vice President Julie Chung declared that ASB is doing its best to make this year’s Homecoming “unforgettable and fun.”

    Junior President Jonathan Ma added, “Homecoming's going to be great, just like it was last year, the year before that, and so and so forth. The people we work with always make it happen, so my expectation is that it’s going to rock just like it always does.”
