Phew– long weekend of solid drum corps activities.
But it was a good weekend.
It all started on Friday, where we had our first parade of the year. The weather was gorgeous and the parade went very well. We even played a stand fast preview of our show at the end.
The only negative was that we were like third from the end of the parade, so by the time we finished everything it was 9:30 pm.
Too late to have beer and cheese curds and still get home at a decent hour.
Saturday and Sunday were both “band camp” days. Full days of drill learning and rehearsal.
But for the first time all season it didn’t rain on us and we had great weather. And we finished learning the show.
The last thing we did on Sunday was our first full performance run of the show.
Nobody died and I wasn’t ready to pass out. I can actually perform the show this year, not just survive it.
So overall it was a really good weekend.
Oh, and P.S. I’m sorry I haven’t been visiting my fellow blogger’s pages. I’ve just been consumed with drum corps and not getting much blog catchup time.
