Hey, I'm Lindsay, most of you already know that, and I'm in the CPHS colorguard as well. I'm a vet of three years and am currently being put on weapon line. It's so awesome. In the process of leadership stuff. Hope I get it, but if I don't it's not the end of the world. Oh well!!! Next year I will be one of three seniors in the guard. Go seniors!!! Wow, can't believe I'm going to be a senior already. Oh my gosh!!!
So, here are some of my band camp guidelines:
*Make sure when Mr. Spicer calls out your number that you respond the first time or you'll get something along the lines of: F19, F19, F19, F19, whose F19. Believe me, it gets really annoying really fast.
*Guard members, try not to hit a band member, or their instrument, with your equipment, they aren't used to being hit, and band members, if you do get hit, just be happy that it wasn't something really dramatic and if it was then just the guard member who did it back.
*Always be at least 15 minutes early, anything less is considered being late.
*Be grateful for 13 HOUR DAYS. It's what makes our band widely known to many, many directors and judges.
*Guard Members-Don't get caught up in, or create, any drama. It gets way to out of hand and eventually leads to people's feelings getting hurt, or worse, people quitting.
OK, enough for now. I'll put some more stories up later, probably closer to band camp, when I have some more. Peace Out!!! LOL!!! I had to do it. Current Mood: creative
