Wow! Two days in the can; and what a two-days! It was great to finish camp last night grooving to Zuit Suit Riot with the whole band, drumline, and pit percussion. The Cougar Band is making a strong beginning to the 2009 marching season.
The Staff has proved to be a great team with loads of talent. There is much to do with the entire band to develop a fundamental visual technique. While marching skills seem to be under-developed, everyone is pushing hard in visual basics block. The work ethic is excellent. The addition of one more staff member, Rose Reynolds, on day three will be a big help with visual.
