"My name is Allaina Sines, and I'm from Columbus, Ohio. I marched Capital Regiment on soprano this summer as a rookie, and I plan to return for the 2004 season.

"This picture was taken in Racine, Wis., after a long day of practice. Our main practice field was right next to a large field being watered by a huge sprinkler system that had been running all day. Me (right) and my friend, baritone Amy Wiggs (left), got the idea to cool off by running through the pictured sprinkler system in the background. It was our way of winding down and having fun before the show that evening. Thanks to Amy for all of the great times!" Thank you Allaina!
