Fragile Tour Blog - 2012 Crossmen presented by Gotta Go Trailways.com
We picked up another hour on our travels last night. This is two in a row and I am sure that the members and staff appreciate the efforts of our drivers in moving the convoy another long slog of 470 miles last night. We are staying at the Wichita Collegiate HS for our brief time here in Wichita. The temps are predicted to be over 100 today and they meet the prediction at 102 by early afternoon. The only saving grace is that there is a healthy breeze blowing all day long. You can tell that it hasn't rained here in a while as the grass is dry and mostly browned. The day is short and the run through and EPL are here before you know it. We are on the buses loaded and ready 6 minutes ahead of schedule. That is how the 2012 Crossmen roll. Prepared, disciplined and quietly confident. They let their actions speak for them. I love how they do that!
We are a little early to the stadium, which is always a blessing. The convoy is parked and the routine of unloading assembling and taking gear, props and screens to the gate goes with no stress in spite of the heat. The temps are starting to moderate as the sun drops lower to the horizon and we get closer to gate time. Thank goodness for that little bit of relief. The stands at Cessna Stadium at Wichita State are pretty full. It is a great site to see.
Crossmen throw down another crowd pleaser tonight. They are applauding throughout the show and on their feet enmasse when the performance is completed. The reaction has to be real up-lifting to everyone involved with Crossmen. Our souvie team has commented on how many people stop by the booth and relate how much they love our show this summer. It is a real complement to Ed Devlin and the design team.
Time to head for Broken Arrow, OK! Tonight will be a relatively short run of @ 200 miles. This is a welcome relief to all. Better quality and more rest will be the result. You can feel the anticipation from the members regarding our return to our home state in two days. I think that they can feel the building momentum for our home shows. Broken Arrow can be loosely referred to as a home show as we have had many members come from the Broken Arrow area. The show should be performed to a packed house.
