Ah, Band Camp.
Say about it what you will, but I look forward to it every year.
This year, however, it was bittersweet. It was my last band camp. :(
I left last Sunday with the other officers to go down and line the marching field... except the camp had been having TONS of rain so the field was waterlogged. We ended up sitting around all night. It was awesome.
By the time the rest of the band arrived Monday morning, we had managed to construct a crude practice field on a small dry patch of the field. The lines were awful, but they worked for what we needed.
Us lucky duck officers got to go line a second field during free time. It worked out better though, as this field had shade for most of the day.
SO Here's how a typical day at band camp goes:
This year, Cara (my co-drum major) and I decided to switch things up a bit, especially in the mornings. We've always had morning conditioning (right after daily cabin inspections), but this year we put them to music! It made mornings much better!
