Fragile Tour Blog-2012 Crossmen presented by Gotta Go Trailways.com
The Quincy, MA show has some historical significance to the drum corps activity. Many years ago there were drum corps in just about every Catholic parish in the Boston area. The CYO Nationals are remembered as some of the best and most prestigious drum corps competitions of their time. The Boston Crusader organization organized a tribute event in 2011 that the Crossmen participated in last year. 2012 marks our return. The event brings large enthusiastic crowds. This summer's event did not disappoint. Veteran announcer Paul Cain is on the microphone with his trademark introductions and colorful descriptions of each corps. He energizes the audience for each and every corps that takes the field in competition.
Crossmen have consistently strung together a couple of weeks of very solid performances so far this tour. Tonight continues that streak. The crowd is on their feet in delight tonight. We leave Quincy feeling pretty good about our direction. The constant I have noticed with our current class of Crossmen is that they go about their jobs both on and off the field with a quiet confidence. All sections are aware that this is a marathon and that we have started the race in great shape but that we are only a quarter of the way to the finish line. We must stay focused and they are. We must continue to improve and they are. We must grow as a team and we are. This is the best shape that we have been in at this juncture of tour in my six seasons at the helm. I am still waiting for some one to pinch me and wake me up and tell me I'm dreaming. We are so proud of this group. I can't wait to see what they do next! Go Bones!
