My Minnesota Trip

I returned home from Minnesota at 2:30 this morning. I had driven up on Friday to St. Peter because my drum corps had 2 performances over the weekend.

The weather was gorgeous...not hot at all, and the cool nights were so very refreshing.

Our show on Saturday was in St. Paul, and we didn't perform very well...no wonder since most of us had driven 15 hours the day before and we had just had a 5 hour rehearsal that morning/afternoon. Still, the crowd seemed to really enjoy the show.

Our show on Sunday was in St. Peter, and we did much better. Our score jumped 3.25 points from Saturday to Sunday, which is very nice.

We are currently seeded 5th in our division going into the World Championships in Rochester, NY over Labor Day weekend. The top 4 corps in our division (Class A) after the prelims round get to march in finals. We're really shooting for getting to be in finals.

We have rehearsal this coming Saturday and Sunday to clean things and add things, then we're off to Rochester. I'm driving, of course. I need to mapquest it to see how long of a drive it's going to be.

That's all for now. I'm exhausted and am off to Tulsa early tomorrow morning.
