Today's News

Hooray for all the “guest cooks.” Way to pitch in and help! Lori was amazed and really pleased. “I looked around and said, ‘Where did they all come from?’”

The corps got in about 7:30 a.m. “It was very scenic coming in,” Lori says. “It was really pretty.” See why I miss home so much?

It is an amazing day. The parents of Carrie from the trumpet line brought in a whole food drop from Tyson Foods. (Carrie’s dad apparently works for Tyson, which is headquartered in nearby Springdale, AR) They brought hamburgers, glazed half chicken parts, hot dogs and Little Debbie treats. They also brought “chicken strips hot off the production line” which the cooks promptly served for lunch. And fruit. Thanks so much!

Jude put in a lot of changes for the guard yesterday for the closer. “It’s been a good, productive day all around,” Lori says.

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

The show was awesome last night guys. It was great to watch rehearsal for a bit and then see the show. Good luck with the rest of the season.
