Having a difficult march means being prepared to work hard to learn it. I hope the band members who don’t know where to stand, namely those on the right outside line or two, will work to learn exactly what they need to know to present a polished show. It’s certainly not fair to those who are working to be in the right spot for others to be too stubborn to move. So, you can probably guess that Siegel won tonight, but ony second place–not the coveted first place overall. It’s ok, though, because the band who won presented an awesome show. We weren’t wronged. Even though our band didn’t win overall, our band did win—well two divisions of the band won! The guard and the percussion both took Best of the Best, and it was well deserved. They were AWESOME!!! I felt so much pride watching the whole band, and even more when the awards were given! Oh, all that hard work is paying off. Way to go!!!
