Fusion Core Announces 2010 Color Guard Team
Fusion Core is pleased to announce Christie Hall as Color Guard Caption Head and Designer. Christie’s guard experience began in 1990 marching with the Spartans Drum & Bugle Corps (DCI) in Vancouver, Washington and continued thru the 90’s with the Marauders Drum and Bugle Corps (DCI), Blue Knights Drum and Bugle Corps (DCI) and “Every-Body” World Class Winter guard (WGI), in Portland, Oregon. Her teaching experience includes various High School Marching Bands in ‘95 and ‘97 and the Oregon Crusaders Drum and Bugle Corps in 2001. After taking a short break from the activity, Christie moved to the east coast where she marched with the 2007 Bushwackers Drum and Bugle Corps (DCA). "I am genuinely looking forward to meeting all of Fusion Core. I am also very excited to put a creative, challenging and entertaining show on the field for Fusion’s 2010 color guard”, said Christie. Welcome Christie!
