Retro RFH Foul Weather Funning

Did someone say backgammon? Originally posted on Dec. 3, 2019, we’re bringing this RFH Senior Commons Retro Pic of the (George) Day back, because that conversation pit pic got those ’70s RFHers talking about the oh, so trendiness of backgammon and games in the pits and on the tabletops of that Senior Commons. We’re not so sure these guys were actually playing, but … the foul weather brings out those RFH Senior Commons memories and everything gets a bit more fair-weathered again. Go back again with us …

Snow day, anyone? Nope. Not this year. Dank days certainly are a bit too plentiful, though. Really, what’s an RFH student to do when the studying mood hasn’t struck, the weather stinks and a little peppering of now is not quite snow day worthy? Hang out in the Senior Lounge and play backgammon, of course. Or something like that. We stress “something like that.”

Retro RFH Study Hall Hijinks

Rainy days and Thursdays always get an RFHer confined to study hall … or some sort of cubicle cut off from high school antics. But, sometimes students find their own fun in a cube bound by books and school rules.

Retro RFH Football Winning Cheer

Football season has been a success for RFH this year.

In fact, RFH is in the 2022 NJSIAA Group 2 playoffs. And on Friday, there is a neutral playoff game with Hazlet’s Raritan High School varsity team versus RFH.

This game is a part of the “2022 New Jersey High School Football Playoff Brackets: NJSIAA – Group 2” tournament.

A real touchdown for RFH football has always been the cheerleading squad. And before cheerleaders cheer for the varsity team, they cheer for junior varsity, or JV.

Of course, at RFH there were the varsity and junior varsity squads. The look was very slightly different from one to the next, yet the sound and spirit was the same — from junior varsity to varsity, decades ago to now. 

High. Very high. So, we pay ode to those cheers and leaders of them, from then until now with a look at another squad of the 1970s.

Retro RFH Rainy Day Halloweening & Lunching

It’s the start of Halloween week and it’s raining.

Well, rainy days like today and hangin’ in the Senior Commons at RFH were just about as cool as The Carpenters’ hit song in the 1970s. It didn’t have to be on Monday, though. And nothing got RFHers down when it came to Halloween fun and lounging. The fun just stayed inside and all RFH cozy-like.

Let’s face it. It’s not every day that you get the chance to grab a bite of good ol’ RFH cafeteria grub — or a little Halloween sustenance, let’s say.

It’s also not every day that you get the chance to “cop a squat” in the RFH senior lounge to ingest the spirit, or spirits, of the day in the company of Harpo and Groucho Marx.

Retro RFH Beach Girls

An almost winter reprise in honor of unseasonably warm weather and RFH times … Really. What’s better than some RFH girls on the … stage.

On the cusp of winter, a waft of warm air has blown in. With it came memories of beached days — staged ones, at least, with some RFH beach girls (and boys?).

Retro RFH Show Time: Oz Wizadry

Show time is tomorrow for the RFH Tower Players’ fall production of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow back on the stage at the high school. In honor of opening night curtain and returning to the stage, we offer a look back at a trip down the RFH Yellow Brick Road to Oz and some staged wizardry of the early 1970s at RFH.

I have a feeling we’re not in Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School (RFH) anymore …

Retro RFH Baseball Tackle Time

In an effort to continue to pay homage to baseball season, these RFH baseball of a more casual kind retro pics, originally posted on April 10, 2019 are being reprised. Have you ever had a tackle strategy like this in your ball game?

Isn’t football the tackle sport? Well, that may be, but by the looks of things in this 1970s home run classic in the outfield, these RFH baseball players paid no mind to standard sports protocol. It was really all about the fun and laughs for them.

Play ball! Well, spring has arrived and RFH Baseball season is set to start soon — on April 9 with a home JV game at Meadow Ridge. Time will tell whether or not vaccines will hit COVID-19 out of the park, but the game is on and the RFH players are set for a home run season.

Reprise of a favorite, because the heat is on for the weekend and everyone needs a little reminder of close, cool partying times … Toga!

Oh, the weekend has arrived … and what better way to celebrate than raising a glass to memories of an old toga party.  Remember those?
