Today's News

Welcome to arriving cooks, David & Jody S.

Mike Grimes talked with the Corps last night after the show concerning their good progress. The Guard is leading the way by being in 2nd place, only 1 pt. behind the Cadets.

Jason Buckingham is flying the lone star flag on the cook truck. Other than being in Texas for the first of six days, not sure of the significance.

We've had wonderful band directors at the housing sites. For today, they've arranged for us to have access to the ice machine-a nice gesture given today's high of 102.

Gaylen & Diane S. (parents of Grant, contra) donated assorted cereals.

John drives.

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

GO GUARD!!! (Especially that blond one with the braces).

Nice bump-up in score last night from everybody! It's good to see the kids are starting to get the credit they deserve.

This show is complex with a higher degree of difficulty than most - and it has a lot left in it to last all the way to Finals!

Go Colts!!!
