Day 60

Competition: Lafayette, LA


Housing: Westgate High School, 2305 Jefferson Island RD, New Iberia, LA
Show: Cajun Field - University of Louisiana, 201 Rinehardt Drive, Lafayette, LA
Tomorrow Housing: Wayne County High School, 1325 Azalea Drive, Waynesboro, MS

After a fun filled free-day and a midnight stop at Wal-Mart, the corps is charging into a new week filled with plenty of big shows. Many regard the coming week as one of the most difficult of the entire season. With hot and humid temperatures, big shows, bigger crowds, and the anticipation for performing in one of the largest stadiums of the season on Saturday, the "Deep South" tour has a reputation for making or breaking drum corps. Just like the temperatures, the competition is also heating up. The Colts will see a lot of their rival corps such as Spirit, Troopers, and Blue Stars this week. 
Today, the corps will perform at the University of Louisiana - Lafayette at the Ragin' Cajun field. Three more shows will follow, leading them to the Georgia Dome for the Southeastern Championship in Atlanta on Saturday.

Show:                          NA
Tomorrow Housing:   Westgate High School, 2305 Jefferson Island RD, New Iberia, LA

With as much hard work the corps has been putting into the program over the last few weeks, some rest and relaxation (or in their case, fried foods and soft drinks) is well deserved. The corps will be taken to downtown San Antonio, an annual free day hotspot for most of the drum corps activity. Members have hundreds of shops and restaurants at their disposal. The historic Riverwalk provides plenty of access to movie theaters and local attractions. For many students, this will also provide their first chance to see and tour the Texas Landmark known as the Alamo. Following the freeday, the corps will rocket into Louisiana. 

Announcements


  • The Colts will station our convey in the East parking lot of the Alamodome for the majority of the day. If you plan to meet with one of our members, please insure that ample time is allotted to return them to the buses on time. We appreciate your cooperation!
