From the Road -- Cadets [06.20.2002]

by Drum Corps International

On Monday (Horton, Conn.) and Tuesday (Red Lion, Penn.) this week, we held clinics at the high schools we were staying at. On Wednesday, we were in Clinton, N.C. (we had a rehearsal day), and today (Thursday) we're in Lafayette, Ga. We've been focusing a lot on the closer, and yesterday was a big ballad and "boogie-woogie" day. We've been doing full run-throughs for the last couple days, we've been playing around with the sets for the "boogie-woogie." We're going to prepare the show for the weekend performance in Orlando. We're really excited about it. We'll be around Jacksonville, Fla., on Friday, and we have a free day at Disney the day after the show (Sunday). By Wendy StoneCadets Color GuardOn Thursdays this summer, Wendy Stone, a color guard member of the Cadets, will be submitting "Notes from the Road." Stone, 21, is from Marietta, Ga., and will be aging out at the end of the summer. She is studying management at Georgia Tech, and is minoring in finance and information technology. This is her third year as a member of the Cadets -- she took last summer off after marching in 1999 and 2000."I'm completely excited to be marching this year. Last year it really hit me how much I missed marching. But it's sad knowing my days are numbered," Stone said of aging out.
