Madison Scouts wrap up February successfully despite snowy rehearsal camp

by Drum Corps International

From the Madison Scouts' Web site:



The great blizzard of February 2007 is one way the Madison Scouts recent winter camp will be remembered. At 6 p.m. on Friday night, Feb. 23, it was just a cold winter night in Madison. Two hours later there was more than a foot of snow hitting the entire Midwest. Needless to say, the camp was a major success with all members, staff, volunteers and board members getting to and from the rehearsal safely. Of course major delays, flight cancellations and general travel frustration took a shot at breaking up the weekend, but everyone pulled together, achieved the goals for the weekend and had a tremendous camp.



The brass and percussion sections adhered to a strong musical focus for the weekend getting through the first two-thirds of the show material. In addition, time was spent working on the marching basics program and the non-show material including the corps song, parade tune, street beat and the concert tune, "Ice Castles."
