2020 Indoor Season

2020 Indoor Season

Yes, I know it’s still 2019, but the marching band season is coming to a close and I’m already feeling withdrawal.

Every winter, I break out my camera and (reluctantly) access my non-Twitter social media accounts so I can cover the indoor color guard, percussion, and winds activity for the Ohio Indoor Performance Association and Winter Guard International. After such a banner year for the marching arts in 2019, I am very excited to see what the 2020 season brings us.

2018 Ohio Indoor Performance Association Photos

The 2018 indoor season is over, but there are plenty of memories all of the color guards, drum lines, and winds groups created throughout the first quarter of the year. I had the pleasure and honor of working social media for some of the Ohio Indoor Performance Assocation events this past season, including the opening Premier event in January and state championships in April.

2018 Winter Guard International Social Media Coverage – Thursday

Most people, when they go on vacation, head to a place with warmer weather, maybe with a body of water.

Me? I go do social media for flags in a gym.

Today, I am at BB&T Arena on the campus of Northern Kentucky University in Highland Heights, Kentucky.

2018 Indoor Season

It’s Christmas Eve, which is exciting unto itself, but it’s also just under a month away from the 2018 indoor season! Winter guards, drum lines, and winds groups are already hard at work designing and perfecting their shows, and I can’t wait to see what they have in store for us all.

Here are the shows I plan on attending:

WGI and FloMarching also announced their 2018 streaming schedule. If you’re a FloMarching subscriber, you have access to all of these events as part of your subscription.

Will you be at any of these events? If so, please let me know and/or try to find me. I’m always looking for the chance to connect with old friends and meet new ones.

2013 WGI Indianapolis Color Guard Regional

Next Sunday (2/24/13), I will be at Warren Central High School in Indianapolis, Indiana, to review the WGI color guard regional taking place there. Prelims are Saturday but I’ll be traveling and visiting family in the area. The Finals event starts at 9 Sunday morning and goes until about 5 and will feature many of the top guards from the Midwest at every competitive level. If you’ll be there, either as a spectator or with a competing unit, come find me. I’ll have my Glassmen corps jacket, covered in patches for easy recognition, plus my iPad and/or laptop for taking notes about the shows.

You can find more information about the regional at the WGI website:
