January camp gallery

Finally, I got one gallery posted for 2009. (See link in sidebar at the right). This one's from January camp. Sorry it's taking me so long these days. But I'll get better. I promise.

(Thanks, Pip, for reminding me how important this is to the worldwide family of Colts fans!)

I guess the cooktruck was feeling neglected...

Well, it looks like the cooktruck was pouting for a couple of days. I guess it was feeling lonely and ignored since I hadn't posted for a day or so after a post every day for a while.

Well, excuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuse me for being busy, little primadonna website. Better now?

Camp is coming. You'll be busy then.

Thank you for a great camp!

A big thank you to everyone who helped to make this weekend's first camp for the 2009 Colts such a success. There was a great crew to help with the cooking and cleaning in the kitchen, a bunch of people sewing and sorting at the Colts Center, and lots of hands to unload and load new instruments, uniforms, and other equipment. Many people also pitched in to helped with check-in and souvies and photos. Two crews for Saturday meals!

The biggest thanks goes out to a Colts alum who bought pizza for everyone at camp for Saturday night snack. The members loved it and the cooks got the night off!

Thanks. And all you volunteers -- you passed your auditions. Please come back for February camp!
