2013 Crossmen Protest Tour
Day 31, Sunday, July 14th
Rehearsal/Laundry Day- Olathe, KS
Housing- Olathe South HS
A Crossmen welcome from the Olathe HS Band and its director, Justin Love. Thank you for the great hospitality Justin!It was pretty funny this morning as with all the strategizing about getting the members to Olathe early in order to get them more floor time backfired a little. Lilly's bus developed a pinhole coolant leak in her coach so after an hour at a Pilot they were able to get under way. With Marvin leading the charge in the Command Center, the small convoy passed the motorcoaches and van while they were taking care of the leak. When it was all said and done we arrived together by slightly different routes at 5:45 am. Overall we made great time even with the small mechanical glitch. The experiment failed in one respect and we will probably stay together all of the time as has historically been our m.o. unless we have a drive over 400 miles again. We will give that option another chance.
Rehearsal ran at a great pace today even though there was some disappointment with yesterday's result. We have to remember that we are all in this together. Whether we do well or not it is always as a team. We pick each other up and encourage each other always. There is no other way to be.The great thing is that the staff and creative guys are on fire. We have been down this road before. The result is totally dependent on working hard and smart. While the corps was at laundry the captions spent the time huddled up around a couple of pizzas developing the plan for the next couple of weeks when they could have very easily taken the block off and relaxed.Their goal has always been to put the members in the best possible place to succeed. After laundry the corps leadership met in order to gut check and make sure we are all on the same page as to what needs to happen going forward. I like the fire in everyone's eyes!
Lights out. Good night Crossmen family. I feel greatness in the air!
