Color Guard

borrowed from El Camino Chart High School
It isn't a hobby, an activity, or something to pass the time. It is a SPORT. It requires energy, strength, talent, and PERSONALITY. It's spending your days, nights, weekends, and summer vacations on a gym floor or a football field, pouring out your heart and soul into a 6 or 7 foot flagpole, a 3 1/2 pound rifle, or an unbalanced sabre for anyone who is willing to watch, or meerly for the sake of performance. It's hearing the words "Pay Attention! Listen! Think! Again Again Again!" over and over. It's knowing that the smart guard really is the good guard, 'one more time' really means 20, and perfect practice makes a perfect performance. It's doing endless run-throughs until your coach is satisfied, regardless of how sick or tired you are. It's the game that you love and the love of the game, an knowing that for 4 or 5, 6 or 7, 8 or 9 minutes, nothing else matters. 

Summer Schedule

Wow, Summer has gone quickly!
Band Camp is over and we know all the flagwork for the show. That still seems so amazing to me. We are so lucky to have John Sullivan as our choregrapher and good friend.  Now we have plenty of time to tweak and clean. The ladies of the colorguard are knocking my socks off.  You have learned these routines so fast. John Sullivan and are so proud of how attentive and excited you are to learn the choregraphy. Keep it up, ladies. There is a lot of hard work ahead. 

I said, we will have fun and I am proposing a bowling night at Millenium Bowl on a Friday Night when we don't have a football game. Details to come soon.  

As soon as we get the silks and prop film for show flags, we will have Tape Party.  Do you wanna tie dye guard shirts  or do you want me to order guard shirts?
