We just filled out the calendar for all the rehearsals and performances for the Round Up Band and it's really looking busy. I was thrilled to hear that Erin would be one of the Drum Majors for the June 2 Diamond Valley parade (a joint venture between Black Diamond and Turner Valley, two towns that are very close together.
It was a rainy day but it settled down before the parade. It turned out beautiful, as a matter of fact… not too hot and not wet! The only mistake was that we made was getting on the wrong side of the street. Erin was the Drum Major farthest from us. The Drum Majors wear black tops and carry a mace, while the regular band members wear blue tops and carry their instruments.
I didn't see Tim when I was filming. He plays the tenor saxophone and we later found out that he wore blue plaid underwear instead of the "official" gray undergarments. The white pants are semitransparent so this kind of faux pas can lead to being pulled from the marching order. Maybe you can spot him in this clip (again, I think he was farthest from where we were sitting … but I don't recall seeing him).
