"Hey, my name is Zach and I have this collage that I think would be cool for a Forzato picture.
"These are a few pictures of myself and one of my best friends/roommate, Chris. Chris has been involved in drum corps since 1995. He's marched in a number of different corps, but closed his marching career out with the Cadets from 1999 to 2003. He was the section leader from 2001 to 2003. I joined the Cadets straight out of high school in 2001. "We both are students at the University of Massachusetts -- Amherst and march in the drum line here. On the far left is a picture of Chris (left) and I (right) performing at a football game. In the middle is Chris (right) and I (left) on the bus this past summer. Finally on the far right is a shot from the 2002 season. Chris is on the left and I'm on the right.
"It's been awesome marching with him these past few years. I have one more year left in drum corps before I age out. Chris is going on to be the snare tech for the Madison Scouts for the 2004 season. I wish him, the staff, and Scouts the best of luck and hope they have a great year." Thanks Zach!
