Crossmen Tour 37 "renewal" Day 51- Girard MS, Girard, PA-Erie- Laundry/Rehearsal Day
Monday, August 8th, 2011- Crossmen Tour 37 "renewal" Day 51- Girard HS- Erie, PA-Laundry / Show Day
The morning brought a rainstorm that would have ruined the outdoor rehearsal schedule. Jaime and Joe must have had a crystal ball when they drew up the schedule today as the staff normally prefers laundry to be the last block instead of the morning block in order to keep everyone's head in the game during rehearsal. After the laundry block the conditions were ideal for the rest of the day and night. Real progress is continuing to be made. The energy level is up. Gotta love this drum corps. There is no quit or let down. I have been keeping a mental accounting of the number of rehearsal blocks taken off due to injury or sickness and it has been minimal. The folks that have been ill have been obviously needing attention or a block off. There are some that just push through the bumps, bruises and minor injuries that occur during the 80 days of drum corps mayhem that starts in May and ends with Championships. These members want to be here and they want to be the best they can be. The journey is the reward. The perfection of the work is the drug that cures all ills. Amazing lessons that will serve our young folks for a lifetime.
After EPL it it time for the drive to the last regular season housing site. Crestview HS in Ashland, Ohio here we come!
