2010 Sun Devils February Camp Report

| |

The Sun Devils Drum and Bugle Corps completed another successful camp this weekend as part of preparations for their third competitive season. Work on the 2010 program "A Night at the Globe" is well advanced, with all sections having received their complete musical books at previous camps. The goal for the weekend was for all sections to learn the first movement drill.

Saturday dawned cool and rainy and after a brief welcome and announcements, the corps was led through their morning stretch, movement, and running block by recent staff addition David Bolzman. The corps then headed immediately to the field for the first drill block of the season. Progress was remarkably swift for the first session and when the corps broke for lunch at noon, almost half of the drill was on the field. In an effort to maximize field time and avoid impending darkness, the afternoon schedule was reorganized and the corps returned immediately to the drill field after lunch and by time the afternoon break arrived the corps was able to run nearly three minutes of drill several times. Saturday evening was devoted to sectionals and the twelve hour day was topped off with a music ensemble block and saw the return of "Panda", a Sun Devils charter member, filling the last open spot in the horn line.
