Saturday, November 23rd

1:45pm: All participants should arrive by this time

Whether a Greaser or Social, we're asking everyone (including photographers) to choose a side & come dressed in theme, if possible. Tia Reagan Creative is hosting additional wardrobe on location & will be available to help style models from 1pm-2pm.
Theme background: Greasers were a youth subculture popular in the 1950s to 1960s with working and lower class young adults in the United States. Socials or "Socs" were their upper class preppy counterpart. Tension between the two groups was popularized in the classic (& once controversial) book The Outsiders. Other pop culture references include The Wild One (with Marlon Brando) and Grease (with Oliva Newton-John and John Travolta). In Grease, Sandy begins as a Soc & ends up a greaser. Greasers: think greased pompadour hairstyles, black or white t-shirts, leather or denim jackets, cuffed jeans, capris & pedal pushers. Socials: think varsity letterman jackets, chuck taylor all-starts, dungarees, hair ribbons, full skirts & petticoats, vintage button-down sweaters & loafers. And feel free to add contempary twists to the theme!
At the end of the slam, we'll award the model or photographer who rocked the theme hardest with a free growler & $25 gift card from The Point Bar & Grill.
*As always, we celebrate individuality & creativity: please feel free to express that uniqueness. In other words, it's ok to get weird! But please leave your lethal weapons at home - as said by Mr. Jones: "when I was growing up, this was all the protection we needed (raises fist). You win some, you lose some. But you live. You live to fight another day."
Hair & Makeup: The Central Point Beauty Salon is hosting hair & makeup on location & will be available for complimentary styling before intros from 1pm-2pm. For questions, please call them at (541) 664-2228. Thank you CP Beauty Salon!
Post Slam: Please stay until the end for special announcements. Afterwards, we hope you'll join us at The Point Pub & Grill as we get podgy & exchange tales from the rumble.
