Nick Hreczny from New Jersey sent this one in. "This is a picture of my "crew" from tour. We were all rookies this past summer with the Jersey Surf. I'm not marching this summer for my own reasons, but I miss them so much. This picture was taken at our last rehearsal, when we were about to go back to our housing sites to go watch semis at night. From left to right: Brian (mello), Joe (mello), Justin "Too Tall" (he's in the back -- bari), Devon (contra), and me (soprano). I miss these guys so much, they were my brothers. Surf's up!
"I marched Soprano with the Jersey Surf in the summer of 2003 and couldn't have picked a better year to be there. I am not marching this summer, but I do plan to return. Good luck Surf in 2004!" Thanks Nick!
