Today's News
It’s bright and sunny with a little breeze this morning outside the cooktruck. And fairly cool, which is good on the cooks and the corps.

The corps got in at 7:30 a.m., which is WAY ahead of schedule. Which is good on the corps and the cooks.

Almost all the new players are now in the whole show. The cooks stood at the base of the stands during the show last night, which gave them a ground-level view of the show. (As I remember, if you don’t have an actual ticket in Hornell, they don’t let you up in the stands. At least that’s happened to me in the past.) The crowd was very responsive to the Colts last night. The standing ovation for them lasted all the way through the next corps coming on the field.

The cooks are preparing dishes such as “Bartok salad” and “Troika toast” in honor of the show.

They could use some donations of fruit and Gatorade powder. And they’re in Indiana today and Illinois tomorrow, so they are in donation distance again. We appreciate all the donations that have been coming in. Too many to acknowledge individually, but be sure every one is appreciated. Lots of fruit being donated, but the Colts are eating it as quickly as it comes in.

Roger D. is the volunteer driver this week.

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

Just curious if the Troika toast popped any circuit breakers?!? :-)
