Julia Ansley, a 19-year-old University of Kansas psychology student who plays mellophone with the Colts, sent in this one.^ "2003 was my first year marching in a drum corps and I was ecstatic to know I would be marching with the Colts. However, at one of the first camps, I met this girl named Katie Peaks and I was upset because I did not like her at all. I was extremely annoyed that I would have to spend my summer with her. We hated one another. However, things turned out nicely because over the summer we became the best of friends! I guess that's just something drum corps does to you! I was so excited to be able to have her as my sister along with all of my other Colts family! I love them all!" We're running out! Send us more of your Forzato submissions!

Send some biographical information about yourself as well. We'll give you full credit. Also, let us know if you want your e-mail address included, to get feedback from other drum corps fans.
