2013 Crossmen Protest Tour
Day 8, Friday June 21stAfter a great night's sleep in the coolness that is the hills of northern Kentucky in June, the Crossmen started their daily routine of a run followed by stretching with color guard caption head, John Leonard. Breakfast followed with Petey cooking up some of the Crossmen's favorite concoctions. Rehearsal led to EPL and an early departure from the housing site to the show at Cunningham Field in Mount Sterling, KY. We are getting the idea on how to be a great drum corps. We need to be great off the field with our preparations and logistics and on the field with our performance.
Show Day Lexington- Cunningham Field, Mt. Sterling, KY
The drum majors along with Joe and myself made the walk from the convoy's parking spot at the Cunningham Field in order to get filled in by DCI CEO, Dan Acheson on how the field logistics would work for this evening for the corps and the front ensemble. The front sideline was pretty cramped for space so moving on and off the field with the traffic of the corps preceding us and following us would be prove to be an interesting endeavor. Combine that with the complication of not allowing the pit cart on the turf made for a challenging trip to the gate for all involved..If we could get this one under our belt without incident every other venue would be a piece of cake.
We reported to the gate on time and were able to get set up without too much strain. The performance was safe and a good start for a first read by the judges. Overall we were satisfied and happy to get the first performance out of the way. After snack and reloading all of the gear Crossmen made their way 290 miles to Elmwood HS in Bloomdale, IN.
