Checking off another long drive from the season's to-do list, the corps arrived safely in Roanoke VA this morning. Quietly tucked away in the Appalachian Mountains, Roanoke and Salem are two very beautiful towns. For some members of the corps, this could be their first time seeing the east coast mountain range. Tomorrow's show, known to most members as the Dog Show Show, will take place at Salem Stadium, 1001 Roanoke Blvd.Salem, VA 24153. It has earned the title as many's favorite show of the year, due to the hundreds of dogs and their owners that occupy the property between the corps warm up sites and the stadium. This is due to an annual dog show that coincides with the drum corps show. The Salem audience has always been particularly receptive to the Colts; the corps is working hard today to ensure that streak continues.
