Uniforms & the Italian Dish

This weekend started out with drill all day on Saturday. The guard was in the best mood I’ve seen us yet this year!! “I feel good!!!” Everything went pretty smoothly. We were amused that “Death Camp” day one was just a nice steady pace of drill with a slight breeze. It was probably one of the nicest most enjoyable days of rehearsal all year!

Sunday morning started out with a little conditioning . . . uh oh uniform time!! A few push ups, crunches and the ever popular lunge/across the floors were painful but felt good afterwards. . . although now I know why my legs don’t want to move!

Uniforms!!!!! The Reneguard is now into the show uniforms. I love the colors! We’re really going to stand out next to the sea of black of the rest of the corps. This week is the rush of alterations and buying whatever accessories are needed. Friday we’ll be showing off our reds for the first time!

Surprise! Peter took a break from the heat down south and joined us for Sunday. It’s rifle time!!! The whole guard is on rifle for Ricotta . . .I mean Tocatta! Sweet!! I love it! I watched the video this morning and it’s going to be so good. I’ve always hated not being intergrated with the corps enough . .well no longer!!! My first toss I’m surrounded by snares and baritones. Love it!!!! Again I love the fact that we can all spin! We’re going to be fabulous!

I was amazed at the end of the show watching the horns and drums. They are flying on the field. It’s a very powerful ending and I can’t wait for the guard to learn our ending work that goes along with the in your face ending that the horns and drums learned this weekend. Like I keep saying . . . this summer is going to be awesome.
