One of the benefits of drum corps is that I am outside during the summer. Outside a lot.

And I’ve always been a fan of tan lines.

However, drum corps creates some not-so-sexy tan lines as well. Like excessively white hands because we wear gloves to protect our instruments.
And we have to wear tennis shoes:
But on the plus side, matching gives you killer calves!
