Today's News
It's Hot! And it's not a "day at the beach." The corps is determined to have a good show tonight. Also, we say goodbye to Olaf tonight. The members (and the cooks) will miss him!. Thank you, Olaf, for taking time away from your family to fly across the pond and spend so much time working for your corps. Everyone appreciates it. Keep in touch - we will see you again in two years!

The reason the corps didn't have lemon cake last night, although it was on the menu, is because someone donated individual ice cream cakes for all the corps members. We have been receiving fabulous donations, including several donations of bottled Gatorade for the whole corps, watermelon, peaches, fresh blueberries, and a couple of donations of grapes and bananas. Thanks to everyone who has donated! We've had enough grapes an bananas for a couple of days... variety is good! Also, powdered Gatorade is helpful.

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

I saw the corps tonight in Allentown. It's 4AM and I just got home (at work in 3.75 hours!), but it was worth it. It was my first time seeing the show, and the kids had a good one tonight. They laid it out there, and the staff seemed really happy with it. The crowd definitely enjoyed it too (which if you don't know Allentown, they're a hard audience to please)

I'm hoping I'll get out tonight to see them again since their only an hour away instead of 4.
