Elsa Velez took this shot immediately following the 2004 DCI San Antonio Regional. "The two pairs of "bus buddies" in this picture marched with the 2004 Santa Clara Vanguard. Pictured are two sisters and their seat partners: Alexis Velez (color guard age-out) and Erik Brown (mellophone age-out) who rule over the inhabitants of bus number three, including Katrina Velez (color guard) and Chris Hofius (trumpet) in front. The bonds and friendships that are made in drum corps endure a lifetime, and this is especially true at SCV." Thanks Elsa!
