I have the honor of joining the WGI Social Media team this week in Dayton and Cincinnati, Ohio, helping to cover the events of the 2017 WGI Percussion and Winds Championships taking place from Thursday, April 20, through Sunday, April 23. If you and/or your performing unit will be at WGI this week, take a look below and see if we’ll be in the same place. If so, say hi! You might get a little famous. 😀
If you are going, here are the Facebook and Google+ event pages. Check in so I’ll know you’ll be there!
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:
If you won’t be there, be sure to follow me on the various social networks for one-shot thoughts on each unit. You can find all of my social networking goodness here:
See you next Sunday!
Another Christmas has gone by. Although my wife and I had to leave Indianapolis Christmas night to get home ahead of the oncoming blizzard, we both enjoyed the time we did have with our family. My sister-in-law Molly made great food to enjoy as we watched our niece Tess discover the wonder of opening presents Christmas morning, then playing with said presents throughout the day. Now, as SNERMERGERD 2012 drops a metric ton of white stuff on my home and most of the Midwest, I have plenty of time to sit back and enjoy the great gifts my family gave me this year.
I took photos of many of the performing units from last Saturday’s regional during Prelims. Here is a slide show of those photos. Enjoy!
My review of this past weekend’s WGI color guard regional Finals in Indianapolis is now up on the WGI website!
