2011 Phantom Regiment January Camp Brass Recap
Greetings guys and gals! My name is Michael Kappen and I’m from Sioux Falls, SD. I am currently going to school at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln and am double majoring in Finance and Trumpet Performance (an odd combination but it keeps me busy). This will be my fourth summer with Regiment and I will be playing mellophone for a third year (I marched trumpet in ’08).
Our most recent camp went very well, and set the corps up for success at future camps and the summer. We had our first real encounter with Mother Nature at camp, as many members wandered in late Friday night due to snow delays on flights. Those who were there at the beginning, including myself, mostly drove in from closer states and cities. The roads were quite slick at times but I believe everyone arrived safely. As always, the equipment truck and box trucks needed to be unloaded at the beginning of camp. We had many members, hornline and drumline, helping unload, and it was done in a very timely fashion.
