Move-ins are coming!!!

It’s just about the middle of May and age-outs like myself are sitting behind desks and in cubicles longing for the smell of freshly cut grass, sunscreen and sweat.  (That really is what drum corps smells like, for those of you who have never marched.)  High School and college kids are excitedly shopping and packing.  The rookie girls (and some of the guys) are packing WAY too much clothing.  Parents are fighting with principals and professors to get their kids out of school early so that they don’t get behind in drill.   If you had cold feet back in November IT’S NOT TOO LATE!  Statistically, at least one member of each corps will be injured and/or quit in the next 4-6 weeks and the corps will be desperately seeking new members to replace them.  My only suggestion is that if you plan on starting your drum corps career as a hole filler, you get in there as soon as possible.  The further into move-ins you start, the more physically fit everyone else will be (and be expected to be) and the higher your risk of injury becomes.

Don’t let that scare you though.  This is a wonderful opportunity, so don’t waste it!

If you need help finding a spot, let me know and I’ll hook you up if I can!
