Public Service Announcement

It's never too early to make your plans to volunteer for summer tour.

It's a new year. You've got all that unused vacation time to schedule. What else are you going to do with it? Go to Jamaica? Go see the new grandbaby? Go to your kid's college graduation? (Oh, wait. That's me.)

Anyway, there are few things as rewarding that you can do with your time next summer as volunteering on the Colts cook crew for a week or two or three. Book early by e-mailing Bill at colts.cooks@comcast.net with your choice of weeks! Or catch him at camp this weekend.

Brought to you by the cooktruck management team.

Drum Corps Defined


Drum Corps Defined, originally uploaded by RodR.

I love this definition. As we know, it's nearly impossible to explain drum corps to someone outside of the activity; this simple statement just takes care of it perfectly.

Happy New Year!

But it doesn't feel much like it with no Rose Parade this morning.

First, the local TV station doesn't carry the Disney parade with the DCI Honor Corps on Christmas morning (boo Channel 5), now no Rose Parade on New Year's Day. Bring on January camp!

Hope your 2005 was as great as ours was. We were kind of sad to see it go. But we're excited for 2006. We know it's going to be a great Colts year.
