Today's News
Goodbye Alf. After several weeks on tour, our biggest Dutch fan (in many, many ways) leaves today. We treasure every moment you are with us, big guy, and all miss you terribly when you have to go.

It’s hot, hot, hot in Virginia today. And so are the Colts. I heard them rehearsing when Polly called from the cooktruck today and I immediately wanted to be back on tour. “If you could hear the music I’m hearing right now,” Polly said, “it would take your breath away.”

As you can see by the menus above, the cooks have gotten lots of donations over the past few days – too many to thank you individually, but know that all the volunteers and the Colts appreciate every one of them. And bring more fruit. The corps went nuts over the fresh fruit salad today again, Polly says.

The show last night in Allentown was fabulous. The audience loved it. The kids were happy. The staff said all good things. Even the judges didn’t have anything bad to say. Keep doing it, Colts.

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