Today's News
Before we get to the news please send an email to with your well-wishes for the Colts. We’re looking for 100% participation! Thanks!

Well here we are, right in the thick of it. Staff and parents watching last night’s show said it was good, but not the best they’ve seen all year – there’s room to grow tonight!!

The police and custodial support at the housing site has been very good. The cooks have lots of help, with lots of visitors. Boy, do I wish I was there (Rod).

Final run-through of the season is scheduled for Saturday at 11 AM. If there is any way to attend, do it. It’s not to be missed.

Many of us from the Chicago land area watched the Colts perform in the theatre last night, and it was fantastic to see. Not as good as being there of course. The audience at the theatre gave the Colts a good round of applause. And the announcers had good things to say about the corps, especially the closer. They remarked that it was the “closer of the year”. They loved the music selection, drill and everything about it.

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