Today's News
A very busy day for the cooks. David and I finally connected at 4:20 this afternoon, 10 minutes before they were leaving the housing site. As you can see from the schedule, the first three meals of the day were pretty close together!

There must be a story behind why last nights dinner menu is being served tonight, but I didn't have time to get it. If I do, I'll pass it along!

Thank you to John D., brother of a drumline member, for the donation of bananas, apples, and gatorade.

Last nights show was good, David said. It was a very windy Texas night, making it pretty difficult for the guard.

The corps is scheduled to arrive in Arkansas at approximately 10 AM tomorrow morning. The cooks are preparing "breakfast in a bag" for the kids to carry with them on the bus.

It is still...... HOT .........

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.

A special thank you to Mike Farmer and anyone else who helped get our son Tommy to the hospital to get his lip stitched. It is comforting to know he is in good hands with the caring staff, corp members and of course the wonderful volunteers. Thank you all from the Mueller family

See you in Madison!!!
