Corps and fans began arriving at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas, early this morning to prepare for the DCI Southwestern Championships. The action begins in less than an hour here, with the Revolution set to take the field at 12:13 p.m. CST. Despite rain in some areas of Texas yesterday and sweltering conditions elsewhere in the state, field conditions here are perfect – the contest is indoors today. The cushioned artificial turf in the dome has never been used before today's contest.
