Today in Mustang, Oklahoma, the #DCI2014 adventure continues... 95 degrees, clear, and windless. We've been continually making improvements to the show and cleaning the drill, all adding even more clarity to a show that has audiences excited... Oklahoma fans, we can't wait to get you ON YOUR FEET tonight!
Our 2014 drum major and a great leader.
Thanks to #dci2014 for the great photos of yesterday's regional. Today, the corps is starting with laundry and enjoying a free day at San Antonio's famed riverwalk. Then, we are back at it - rehearsals, the shows in Mustang, Oklahoma and Little Rock, Arkansas and more rehearsals before we head to the deep south for the Southeastern Championships Saturday in Atlanta's Georgia Dome! Thank you to all our fans who are coming with us all along the way, in person or in spirit!
