Elsa Velez, an "SCV fan and corps mom," sent in this one. "In anticipation of the traditional "Feathers up!" command from their drum major, the Santa Clara Vanguard listens attentively to some final words of encouragement from corps director Rick Valenzuela at DCI Midwestern. Taken in the access tunnel adjacent to the field on July 30 in Indianapolis, this photo shows the dignity, composure and focus embodied by every member of this legendary corps." Thanks Elsa!
