Today's News
John and Suzie drive.

Today, it's hot. Yesterday in DC, it was hot. Basically, it's HOT.

A good time was had in DC yesterday, but did I say it was hot? Jack said the city had to substantially reduce the number of Metro trains (subway) running to conserve power, so getting around was a little more challenging.

The corps arrived in PA about 3 AM. The staff set an earlier than normal lights out time tonight to give the kids extra rest due to the high temperatures.

Minor additions and adjustments continue to be made to the show.

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

To my Colts family:

Well it's my first day back from tour and I'm going through withdrawal (if you've been out on tour I know you can sympathize). I do admit, however that not sweating all day is a nice change.

I’m writing to say thank you to all the cooks that worked with me this year. In my twelve years of cooking with the Colts from San Antonio to Washington, D.C. has to rank up there with some of the roughest days I’ve spent on tour but some how we pulled it all off in style thanks to everyone’s flexibility, hard work, and love. If you’ve been out on tour this year, thank you for sharing your energy and love with our kids. If you’ve never been out on tour I encourage you to think about for the future. While it’s really hard work just being a part of a magical music making family is an amazing experience year, after year, after year. And one final word to those Colts parents out there – thank you for raising such wonderful children. It’s a pleasure seeing them grow and change as the season and the years go by.

Sincerely,
Barry
