Today's News
The corps got in about 6:30 a.m.

Seems to be bus maintenance day today. 853 was having the brakes seen about (although Lori thought that had already been taken care of) and 828 was departing for Dubuque. Another bus was meeting them halfway and returning in time to get the corps back on the road.

Jude was the guest cook last night. He helped serve dinner. Thanks Jude!

Tim C., a former tuba player, was in today helping on the cooktruck.

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

If you sign up and can either drive or fly there quick - otherwise it's going to be a very slim kitchen crew - I'm sending them a lot of good vibes for an easy day - ha ha! Guess there will have to be more staff guest cooks or servers. good luck guys.

I'm on the way...just hold the fort down until I get there!!!! I'm bringing food too!!!!

Yeah for Lorrie...I hope it is some more fruit like you sent with Ray (the husband and bus driver) to Wisconsin during corn field....it was wonderful!!!!!

I fly into Dallas on Thursday and meet up with Donna Miller...so more reinforcements are on the way.

Lori called me...they are hanging in there..and she said that Jude is hired as a server!!!!

Great to see the Colts come through Carbondale IL. Hope to see you guys again! It would be nice to have them performing here as well. Good luck with the remainder of the 2007 DCI season.
