And that can mean only one thing....
Tomorrow is SPRING PREVIEW DAY!
And it appears above that Fran will be debuting a new shirt. But come to the concert anyway!
It's also Cinco de Mayo, so what better way to celebrate than to overindulge in drum corps music from some of the finest ensembles around!
There may be people you haven't seen since the skies opened up in Rochester over Labor Day weekend, 2011. Chances are they may be at Twin Valley HS tomorrow, so come see 'em!
The Reading Buccaneers, just like many other drum corps, could not operate at a highly functioning level without the extraordinary partnerships we have with local music educators and school districts. We are indeed blessed by our relationships with Dan Long and the Twin Valley School District. Tomorow's concert helps us say 'thank-you' to Dan and TVSD for all they do to help make the Balance in Blue what it is. Please help us do so by joining us for a great evening of wonderful music!

I don't have Internet access on my phone... the Kentucky Derby goes to post around 6:30 PM tomorrow, just before showtime... and I'd hate to miss it.
Various stuff since then
"As God as my witness... I thought turkeys could fly." From WKRP In Cincinnati
"I said no water for HIM!!!!!!" From Ben-Hur
"I ain't gettin' on no time machine!" The ABA's Spirits of St. Louis center Marvin "Bad News" Barnes, refusing to board a team flight that was scheduled to arrive at 7:56 PM in St. Louis (Central Time) after departing from Kentucky at 8 PM (Eastern Time).

So often we judge a groups success based on the score or the amount of members they have. Those things will fluctuate year to year but if you have a strong infrastructure, which they certainly have, you're bound to be a success. I would love to have a support group like Lois, Amy, Lumelle, Jerry and the others that help keep that organization run like a well oiled machine.
I keep reminding myself, we are only six years young and those people will come and when they do I will continue to look towards the Bucs and use them as our guide/model for how to do it right. They are wonderful hosts and everything flowed seamlessly from the minute we got to our practice field Saturday morning until the time we stepped off our field they provided us with on Sunday.
I was also extremely proud of Fusion. Every year, EVERY WEEKEND, they keep me smiling with pride. I couldn't be any happier with what they did so early in the season Saturday night!!! Thank you Fusion!!
To our Reading Friends THANK YOU!!!! I look forward to next years preview!!
