erika and i reminisced about our lodi going days. the last time the band competed there was my junior year of high school (fall 2004) and i would have to say it was one of my favorite stadiums to compete at. maybe it was the memories of setting up "camp" at a park next to the field where there were swings and play equipment. of course, what high schoolers wouldn't want to play on a playground? there was the year we competed and then drove home right after because it was the homecoming dance... and i was lucky enough to sit next to my "crush" on the bus ride home... oh geeze. spirit wars in the stands, the "barn" of a locker room that the guard changed in, delicious gazzolo cooked dinners, you name it.
guard: 2nd place
percussion: 1st place
division: 1st place (score of 89.5 while the other group had a 67.5)
they beat the entire division above them's scores. not too shabby.
i believe it's down to just two more competitions (napa this weekend & fairfield next weekend) and then it's on to winter season. whoo hoo!
good job del oro.
good job sisters.
good job aileen.
