Things are going well here in Sparta, Wisconsin. Everyone is glad to be out of Iowa and in a state with more normal weather. We arrived a few days ago after an exciting first bus ride of the season and had our first public performances yesterday. (The community performance in Forest City was cancelled due to tornado warnings.) The second standstill was the premiere for Blue Stars alumni. After the first impact, they all started clapping and cheering, which was really cool. It’s always nice to perform for an energetic audience, and i’m excited to get on tour to perform for larger audiences. I can’t believe that tor starts in less than a week (i think). Today we finished learning closer drill and now have the enture show on the field! Woo!
