Today's News
Today is “even more beautiful than the day before. It’s fantastic here,” Jim J. says.

It’s quarterfinals day and it’s “very exciting.” The corps had a long day of rehearsal yesterday – worked like they always do. But they are focused and not nervous at all, Jim says, “so they should be great.”

There have been a number of alumni working various jobs on and off the cooktruck.

Fresh fruit has been donated for tomorrow.

Jim says the cooks got to watch rehearsal and runthrough last night in a beautiful setting. “Mountains in the background. The weather was fantastic and the drum corps was even better.”

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