March camp

Last weekend's camp went well. Both the percussion and brass sections got outside, with the brass actually getting on the field.

Sunday's show had a surprise performance of Freebird. It immediately took me back to the unbelievable Freebird show on the Navy Pier in 2006. What a great memory of the day with Rod R., Lauren and Mike R., Penny D., John C., Tom T., Jody and David S. and Luba!

After finally solving the technical problems (thanks to Jeff M. in the Colts office and DCI server techs), the 2012 volunteer calendar is finally available.

Just select "2012 Cook Calendar" under the Important Links on the right and you'll be connected. This gives you the full picture of when we could use the most help on the Cooktruck.

Colt Cadets rehearsal this Sunday

The next Cadets rehearsal is Sunday, March 18. Their first two rehearsals went well and they are making good progress on the 2012 show.

In case you missed it, here is the DC-eye from March 1 of brass instructor Andy at a previous rehearsal.

Keep up the great work, Cadets!
