2013 Crossmen Protest Tour
Day 45, Saturday, July 27th
Show Day- Huntsville, AL
Housing- Ardmore HS, Ardmore
Setting up for a "Protest" in Huntsville!This morning is like many other show days. The exception today is pretty unusual though. Breakfast was followed by a trip to the two fields that the mayors had found for us and given permission for us to use. Brass and percussion rehearsed in Tennessee while the guard rehearsed in Alabama for the first block. After lunch we all joined up at the Tennessee field for ensemble. After the run we loaded up the truck and rode the buses back to the Ardmore HS campus. After EPL the convoy made the trip to the A&M Stadium in Huntsville. The 15 corps line up contained lots of entertaining groups to the delight of the better than expected crowd. This is the first time we have had an event at this university and the crowd was very vocal and excited by all of the performing ensembles.The Crossmen had them eating out of our hands with multiple applause moments followed by a standing ovation at the peace sign. The ending brought more move to the CRossmen and left the corps satisfied by their efforts. We loaded up and left Huntsville knowing that we had made some new fans for the activity. Next, we are on our way to Adairsville, GA and familiar surroundings. Lots of space and distance from the sideline to the grandstands at A&M.
