I’m sure y’all are just champing at the bit to find out how my first drum corps show went last night. Aren’t ya??
We did ok.
Our score was a 76.5– which doesn’t mean a whole lot right now. We were judged by DCI judges who don’t know how to judge DCA corps, so the score is basically a guess. Unfortunately it’s 3 points lower than our arch nemesis corps out East.
It was obviously a first show for us. It was a bit rough, and by the end everyone was completely out of gas. But nothing major blew up, and as a whole the show came off decently (at least that was the feedback).
As for me personally? I had a good show. I feel like I did a good job hitting all my drill places accurately. And I played like 90% of the show and finished really strong. (I’m still fighting fatigue and being winded after being sick, and this show’s a killer.)
Today we get another shot– I’m in Mankato all day for rehearsal, and then we perform again this evening.
Keep your fingers crossed about 7 pm CST that we have a better show.
