Today's News
David said they passed a bank yesterday afternoon on the way to store, and the temperature showed 100 degrees; it warms quickly and there have been many 100+ days in a row. He said "it's dry and feels like you're being baked".

David also noted that this section of tour feels like "the longest time in one state; we've been in Texas for almost a week!".

The local band kids served lunch yesterday and will again today. The people there have just been wonderful; a very friendly place. A nice small town with that small town hospitality.

John and Suzie drive.

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

Check out the video link to the Columbia MO news on DCI's page today:


They were hanging around the hornline during warmup a lot that night (all the close ups of the foot technique are us - get it!), and the Colts are a significant portion of the clip - during vis and brass warmup and some parts of the show musically and visually are used.

Get some Red Team!!!
