Christina Mavroudis-Dempsey talked with three ageout members of Blue Devils B just after their third-to-last performance at the Division II & III Prelims in Madison, Wis., on Aug. 8, 2006.

Third-year tenor drummer Antonio Sandoval gave this veteran advice to rookies who will come to the corps next year: "Drum corps is completely different the more and more you push yourself, and it will determine how much you do get out of your experience. If you just go by the bare minimum the whole time, you're not going to actually feel the full force of what drum corps can give you unless you put your whole heart into it."
