2019 Indoor Season

2019 Winter Guard International Troy Indoor Percussion Regional

With the cancellation of the OIPA Premiere due to weather, my first indoor marching arts event of the 2019 season becomes the Winter Guard International Troy Indoor Percussion Regional. The Troy regional is one of two percussion regionals taking place during the first weekend of WGI’s 2019 season.

The regional takes place on Saturday, February 9, in the Troy Athens High School gymnasium. The day is split up into a preliminary competition starting at 11 AM and a finals competition starting at 5 PM.

I will be working on the WGI social media team, switching between their Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, and Snapchat accounts. Be sure to subscribe to and follow those accounts on the 9th so you can see my posts! If you’ll be at the Troy regional, be sure to share your photos and comments on social media with the hashtag #wgitroy

Will you be at the Troy regional, either with a performing group or as a fan? Let me know in the comments below!

2010 DCI Championships FREE Rebroadcast

I had the pleasure of watching last year’s DCI World Championships from the press box of Lucas Oil Stadium last year, reporting as part of the Drum Corps Planet Live From the Stands series. I also have the Blu-Ray discs, thanks to my lovely wife who gave them to me for Christmas. I tell you all this because last year’s championships were definitely worth seeing and hearing and, regardless of whether or not you’ve experienced the 2010 championships already, you’ll want to experience them given the chance.
