No Camp this weekend; that's not a problem ...

it's just an inconvenience. So inconvenient that I missed all of my Colts' friends so much that I wore my Colts jacket yesterday as I shoveled snow when it was a -30 windchill.

The good news is that I got to update the cooks calendar with all of the tour changes that Mike Grimes was ready to distribute to everyone at camp. Take a look at the new calendar (in the LINKS area in the right sidebar) and you'll see some new locations - yes, we have a show in Houston, not Dallas. Not everything is set in stone (welcome to Drum Corps), but it is becoming less fluid.

We still have many openings during tour for cooks and drivers. Parents (friends, alumni, supporters), take a look and see when we're going to be close by so you can join tour. Members, talk to your parents about supporting you by going on tour. Or if you're really gutsy, sign your parents up when you want them there!

As soon as you pick your dates, contact me at Come join the fun; you won't regret it. And remember this - volunteers never age-out.

The bottom line is that February camp for Colts has been canceled because of snowy weather.

But you need to go to and read the entire post. There's lots of information there that you need about your Colts membership and responsibilities. Go. Now. Read it.

Updated Cook Calendar

An updated, and expanded, summer tour Cooks calendar is available on the Cook Calendar 2008 link to the right.

The expanded part is the need for volunteer cooks during the Pre-season Workshop the week before the Memorial Day camp. As you can see on the calendar, we have many dates that need to be filled. The optimum number needed each day is a Head Cook and 5 cooks.

In addition to touring this summer as a cook, we also have the need for volunteers to drive our 15 passenger vans that transport the cooks overnight.

If you are intersted in volunteering to be a cook or a van driver (or just have some questions), contact me at
