Subj: Re: MARCHING BAND - THE END (hopefully)
Date: Wed, 4 Mar 1998 15:31:34 -0500

Ok, I have heard enough. I have read a ton of e-mails that suggest that
Marching Band is not a sport and it doesn't make you a better musician. Well,
that is definatly not true. I am a sophmore and this was my first year as a
marcher. It was the single hardest thing I have ever done in my life! We
trained everyday after school from 2:45 to 5:45 from August 11th (YES, BEFORE
SCHOOL STARTED!) until when the season ended at the ATLANTIC COAST
CHAMPIONSHIPS on November 8th. We worked our butts off and we got what we
deserved! We got out of 8 performances, including ACC's, 3 first places, 3
seconds, 1 third and 23rd at Acc's. Now that is 23rd out of ALL of the
Marching Bands in the Atlantic region from North Carolina to Maine! That is
good. And we also got a ton of speciality awards like best music, got that 7
times!, and best band front. So the next time you think everyone in Marching
Band is a wus or anything, remember this!

Later all

Sharon Rice, a clarinetist for 7 years
