Today's News
The Colts couldn’t use the stadium where they are staying last night because the football team was using it, so the MAYOR OF MONROE found them another one to use. One with “huge, high bleachers” that gave the visual staff a wonderful look at the drill, Carole says. No wonder she says “we’re still being treated like royalty.”

She said the Colts look “absolutely breathtaking” and that there is still new stuff being added and refined. Cool.

Speaking of cool, it’s been really nice weather for the Colts in Georgia. “This is nothing like the Georgia weather I remember from two years ago,” Carole says.

In case you’re wondering, breakfast tomorrow is at 6:30.

Go Colts.

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

Just wondering if the corps has received the spirit signs form the Melson family in Oklahoma. Just some good luck/thank you signs.

Looks like things are loking more and more awesome. Can't wait for tomorrows scores, and see the real thing in Dallas.
