Today's News
The weather is sunny and humid but only about 75 degrees by mid-morning.

Cliff, a college professor, brought about five of his students to see the Colts rehearse today. The students are observing visual drill and sometimes trying to follow along at the back of the field. This is all for class credit. Cliff helped out with light tasks on the cooktruck.

Happy Birthday to Dan M., baritone

David the map is a nice addition.

Thank you to all the volunteers this weekend. With everyones help we had a successful camp and a great start for tour.

The unifrom crew worked thier magic (again) and the corps looked outstanding for the parade.

The flag crew spent endless hours at the center and even spent a few hours on Monday trying to finish as much as possible.

The repair team helped Mary make a few changes to the sovie trailer plus worked on some of the other vehicles.

The cooks did a great job and were able to serve all but 1 meal(rain issues)out of the cooktruck.

Thank you again to everyone that helped make this such an amazing start to a great summer.

this is the first summer since 01 I haven't been around on the first day of tour...ARGH, I'm having drum corps withdrawal! :( I'll see you all when you come out my way (VA) I hope at least. Depends on what the USMC wants me to do that week.

Get some Colts!
