Rachael Staupe, a 2006 member of Capital Sound's front ensemble, sent this picture.

My name is Rachael and I was a rookie this year with Capital Sound. I really enjoyed my summer with them last summer. One of our pit traditions—after we were done setting up all our pit equipment and the rest of the corps wasn't on the field yet—was to go to the middle of the field on the big "X" and all say something to help us have a better show. I know that it helped me have a better show every time.

Thanks, Rachael!
