AHS v. Spaulding Part II

Good evening everyone,

Sorry this is so late but I have just finished reading the critiques from 9/11/09. Now to start on the next set but not yet!
I have just been reviewing our show from Friday Night at Spaulding - Before I go on with this blog I want to extend a "special" Thank You to all the parent volunteers who helped chaperone, drive the truck and worked the pit. I would also like to say "Thank You" to those parents that made the trek up to Rochester NH for the game. We played at Spaulding and were treated extremely well. Water and cookies, the Spaulding Band danced and cheered us on when we played our stand tunes and we reciprocated when they played theirs. At the 3rd quarter they came over and we played together 300 strong with a drumline of about 35-40.

Oh Yeah, there was a football game too :-)

Now Friday night was a good time but I feel that the focus for our band was lacking. Man, we have some work to do before Salem. Tomorrow, we'll watch the show - but remember I'll be wearing the TAZ tie! This week I drill and drill is the word (for those of you who remember the Bee Gees). Back to the basics. Things that we reviewed ad nauseam just didn't happen. FUNdamentals, where did they go?!?
OK, you get my drift. It's getting late and I don't want to be too grumpy tomorrow.

Mr. B
