Bob Jacobs, director of the Jersey Surf, wrote in to give us an early April progress report:

The Surf's snare and tenor sections rehearse during a March camp.
"With so many of our members celebrating their fourth and fifth anniversaries with the corps this year, the vibe around here right now is one of excitement, enthusiasm and all-around positive energy. We can't wait to get on the field and down the road -- we'll finish up all but the last 30 seconds of the musical book this weekend at our April camp, and we've already started the drill process at the March camp -- both of which are great things for us, as we're traditionally "late-bloomers. "The kids are playing a ton and having a blast --just the way we like it!"
