 We will wear our new t-shirts with jeans and gym shoes for both shows this weekend. For those still needing their t-shirt, Diane is picking them up from Classic Stitch on Thursday, Feb.,1 and will bring them to the Miamisburg performance for your child to change into. I WILL ANSWER ANY OTHER QUESTIONS MONDAY AT PRACTICE FROM 6:30 TO 7:45 AT JANE CHANCE.

 This time next week, you will have already performed one time at Miamisburg and just about getting ready to perform your second time at Northmont. To all the new families this year, please do not get discouraged if your son or daughter has not mastered every move right now. We don't expect them to until March and then our final showing in April. It's a slow process, so please do not get discouraged, everyone will get it. To all new members, I invite you maybe to come earlier than I said to be there at Miamisburg. I can get you in at no cost to come watch some other color guards and see what this is all about. It's totally different than fall season, you are going to find it really, really exciting.  I am going to be there pretty early, and tomorrow night at practice we can discuss a time that if you would like to bring your son or daughter to come and just watch a few groups in the gym before we perform. They're going to go oh oh oh wow and so are you. You're going to see our kids actually do quite well in comparison to some of the groups that practice three, four, or five times a week. Again, please do not get discouraged. If it would happen to snow so much tomorrow afternoon that we cannot have practice, we will practice on Thursday, February 1st, so plan on that. I'm planning on doing our Monday practice tomorrow if at all possible that's what I want to stick with. We'll see everybody tomorrow, again please do not get discouraged . Your sons and daughters are all doing great!

Thank you,
