Debut camp info at

Lots of information about April camp has been posted at Read it all because there's surely something there you need to get done before Friday (or before summer). Car wash information, new stuff about uniform parts, volunteer signups, and lots more included.

New cook calendar

There's a newly updated cook calendar posted. Click on the link in the right sidebar to download it to your desktop. You'll see that there are still LOTS of holes to fill to make up the cooktruck crews for the summer.

There's a special need for head cooks in June. Please contact Bill at to get your name on the list. We are getting really close to tour now and it is not a good thing to start out on the road without a full cook roster.

Don't make me beg.

Thanks to everyone!

The Report:
The Colts worked through a whole lot of drill pages. I think I heard some of them same over 40 pages.
They also had the chance to see the new uniform style. There is still a few changes on the uniform to be done.
It was a great camp and the kids seemed to be ready to take on the new season.
Cook crew had a pretty light work schedule due the lack of proper equipment.
Sewing crew worked on sizing uniform pants, mini flags, practice flags, and such
Jean Scott was working on the show flags
Building crew worked on storage cases for the steel drums and other projects.
With the free time the volunteers had they managed to have a quick game of volleyball. (what fun and no one passed out or had to be taken to the hospital..........)
I'm sure you will get many more responses to how great the camp went.
LOTS of FUN had by all.
Take Care,

Send me a camp report, please
