The #OC14 hornline is back at it after another torrential downpour. You know, despite being from a place where rain and grey skies are common, we really don't want it to rain. April or May in Portland, OK... July or August on the east coast, not so much. So rain - #Nevermore on this tour, ok? Now, back to perfecting this show! Photo courtesy Mark Frisco

The show in Rome is cancelled due to storms. We're sorry for the great people of this great drum corps town that we won't be able to thank you with a great show tonight. On to Allentown!
The people of Rome, New York, are just the absolute BEST hosts! Before our show today, the Polish Home hosted our lunch, and then we'll go and warm up in some front yards! And it's in the low 70's... THANK YOU ROME!
Drumline Battle - Oregon Crusaders vs. Mandarins at the Erie, PA show on 7/29/14
Thank you Erie, for a great show this evening! With a score of 79.35, OC continues to advance as we look ahead to Rome, New York and Allentown! Our highest score in corps history is 81.05... and there seems to be a rapping, rapping at our chamber door... it is history, and nothing more.
With a score of 78.35, Oregon Crusaders has a good performance in Charleston, West Virginia. Now on to Erie, PA, Rome, NY, and then to Allentown!
