It started out watching my grand daughter in her first cheer leading !
But – as I watched – I could not help but notice
The Marching Band – Drill Team and Color Guard –
It was very large considering it was a High School band.
I looked at my hand out of the team details
and found that the Marching Band had 243 members !
Now that I thought was what you would most likely see
at a College football game – not High School
Plus – all the equipment that was on the track later to be set up
A tractor was used to tow part of the equipment out –
There were platforms
one that had stairs and microphones set up at the top
a small platform was seen in this picture
And there were THREE DRUM MAJORS
each with a platform
two small ones right and left
and a high one in the center
where they directed the entire field!
The music flowed – the drum corp and horn section
all the while the drill team and color guard performed.
During the performance
each member set their hat on the field
all lined up in formation
off to the side
I found that to be quite effective
I do not know the correct name for the instruments in front of the platform
But there were four of them
and microphones set up
and band members with horns and flutes
would climb the stairs and play from up high.

The announcement came – they had performed in competition

They were going to compete at JMU this weekend
competing against 50 bands from across the Country.
It was a unexpected viewing
one that I knew little about
Amazed that so many students
participated in all the activities that night
