Today's News

Great weather.

The cooktruck got new whiteboards because you no longer could erase the old ones. Hmmm -- the board nazi will have to be even more vigilant.

We had 'ridiculously good' vegetable beef soup last night. The brownies rocked their world.

The brass line is learning ballet. All kinds of exercises.

"We are having a great tour!"

As always, check for the latest official word on tour news, housing sites, mail drops, or other corps information.

'Glad to hear about the new white boards. While our intense cleaning of them on Sunday with a combination of WD-40, Lysol, and Rubbing Alcohol got the job done, I had a feeling it was their last chance!

Cool! Now that there are menus, schedules, and weather posted on this blog I KNOW it is summer! As the Board Nazi, I'm interested to hear there are new white boards. Obviously I can't police the board when I'm not there, but I'm glad to learn that Rod and others know my cleaning tricks.

In other news, on May 26 Jack Borland was featured on the interview. He says "Best thing about being in a drum corps: The camaraderie. I've only been with the Colts for three months, and I can't describe to you the family atmosphere that I already feel a part of. And also, the food. You rock, Colts cooks!"
