Happy Saturday! It's time for the second round of sweepstakes events as we've condensed to just 3 active regions for this point of the season.

East coast corps march into Old Bridge NJ, led by a large contingent of open class corps:

Quiksilver hosts their home show event at Faurot Field in Columbia MO, where crews were working overnight to dig out the snow:

As we begin our second full week of competition, directors will now have their first caption point increase at their disposal. After a bit of a drop in scores at sweepstakes events, that extra point may help more directors start moving their scores upwards.

Today's events:

Eastern corps visit Altoona PA's Mansion Park Stadium for a tribute show in memory of the late Joe Paterno:

In the Midwest, DCI and the BOA brigade may have moved on, but the DCPI crowd at Normal IL's Hancock Stadium is no less enthusiastic:

In the west, we take a brief hiatus from the ordinary Riverside show as the Elite Brigade Org has a home show at Roosevelt HS in Corona CA:

Just one event today, at Toledo's Glass Bowl Stadium. With the departure of Caprice, the event held in Bowling Green the last couple of seasons has reverted back to the traditional "Key to the Sea" venue.
