  1. A year ago I alluded on here I wanted to volunteer or spend my summer some way on the road with a corps. I’ve now been home a few days and had a chance to reflect on the amazing and life changing summer I spent with the Bluecoats as an administrative intern. Had a hard time writing this one, it was so hard to say goodbye to easily the best thing I’ve ever done with my life.

    2018 Corps Reviews

    I need to do mine don’t I? :I
  3. Not yet. Currently doing 14 hour days for summer band in college so it might be a bit.....
  4. I have this organization to thank for the start of a new chapter in my life. I’ll keep it simple. THANK YOU!!! <3
  5. I will never forget tonight. My life is changed forever after this summer.
  6. I helped souvies out the first half of the season and haven’t since around San Antonio. Sorry!
  7. A year ago today I would not have believed what I would be doing what I did this summer. I am so sad this is all over tomorrow night, but what a journey it has been. They say not to meet your heroes, but spending the whole summer with the corps that has been my favorite since I was a freshman in high school exceeded any expectations I had. I hope I had a fraction of the impact they’ve had on me.
  8. I can’t believe this is here. What an incredible summer. Enjoy it everyone!

    Spirit of Atlanta 2018

    I am gonna pat myself on the back......I knew they were gonna have a great summer after last season. And while I’m sure it might be hard being the first out, improving five placements in the most competitive bracket of drum corps is no small feat. INCREDIBLE season!

    Mandarins 2018

    Looks like I am the first here to say congrats! I was close to their booth in the concourse when they found out. That’s easily one of my favorite moments of the summer.
  11. Walked by the Mandarins booth when they found out. That was an awesome moment. :)
  12. Can't think of a better way to spend my first championships than serving my favorite drum corps. SO excited for this! Have fun and good luck everyone, this is gonna be an amazing conclusion to an amazing season.
  13. Yep! I've only ever been to Texas area shows + Denver before this summer.
  14. I am so excited about this one.
  15. It is so pretty here. :O
  16. Sad about a rainy Allentown, bored, like reading? My next article for Drum Corps World came out today! I talk about my life on tour as someone who has never done it before and I interviewed our two amazing media team members! One more after this week summarizing my whole summer and what I got out of it, and it's already been hard thinking about putting that together. This has been an amazing summer. Enjoy!

  17. Absolutely! We are rehearsing in the area tomorrow as well if that interests you.
  18. I am sure that can definitely be arranged. :)
  19. Indiana Wesleyan University in Marion Indiana. Hour, hour and a half north of Indy depending on traffic. :)
  20. We will meet at last next week. As you can tell it was a crazy day. :)
  21. Whoever was looking for me at our booth I am no longer working souvies. :)
  22. I know this is the WC forum but just heard about this, but these guys need our help. From what is in this video/what I've heard through some other channels they had a bunch of unexpected expenses and crap go down at once and it sounds like they are in serious financial distress right now. I have adored the Legends the last few years. It would absolutely kill me if they would fold or something would happen to them. I'm gonna give what I can, which isn't much but if a bunch of other people do the same it can go a really long way. This kills me.

    Boston Crusaders 2018

    Love the soft ending with the addition of the waves. Surreal front ensemble writing, and I LOVE the handbells. Bravo. :)
