Southwind Director’s Hub – Fall 2020

| |

Hello Alumni, Friends, and Family,

For Southwind, the 2021 Season begins on October 1. Normally we’d be visiting marching band contests all over the Southeast and counting applicant registrations in anticipation of our December audition camps. But, this is the start of drum corps season like we’ve never experienced. Yeah. Southwind has had plenty of seasons of inactivity for various reasons, but this is a first for all of us. Every day I receive an email from a prospective member, returning vet, or teaching staff asking about our 2021 plans. And I can only respond with, “Stay tuned!” Right now there are so many regional fluctuations in viral cases across the country that it’s difficult to determine where we’re headed. We can only plan for several scenarios and wait to see which is optimal. One thing is for sure, we won’t begin until we know our activity will be safe for all involved. That includes our membership, volunteers, and the super old guys like Dave and Eddie (sorry Dave and Eddie!).
