We competed at the world championships this weekend, in Dayton, Ohio.
 
The fans awarded us the people's choice award.
 
We finished third place in Percussion Scholastic World Class.
 
If you have sharp eyes, you can spot me removing props from the finale.  The crowd was so loud at that point, you couldn't hear the final 10 seconds of the show.

    Knew of Fr. Ryan from when we lived in Brentwood in 79-83.
    A Great School! Looks like the tradition carrying forward.
    Drummers on Wheels?????? Pretty Unique!

      Man, from everything I've heard about these kids, I'd LOVE to see them perform
      When they were in the holiday parade, I told Poverty to have one of the little girls wave at the camera and say, "HI BUSHIE".   Don't think he did, though.  Some friend, huh?? 
      Good luck to y'all !!!!!!!!!!!!!

        Bushie, why don't you come up here to catch their performance in Dublin this summer. Dublin is about 20 minutes from our house. Maybe we can get Poverty to wear his Hawaiian shirt.

              Thanks,  those kids are amazing.
               
              Michael,  we're going to be performing in Round Rock, just a few days before we get up to Ohio.  We're making the rounds this summer;  29 states in 9 weeks.
               
              Morningglory, we'll be in Sacramento on June 23, I believe is the date.  Come down and watch it with me.

                PP sure does seem to enjoy this gig that he has had for a few years.

                    You're just doing that to give Bushie an excuse for not flying up here.

                        Holy Moley! Now that's an itinerary. Will you have time to eat? I'd hate to have to pay for the gas.

                          We have gotten a bit side-tracked.  This thread started in reference to Father Ryan High School's Drumline.
                             The itinerary I just posted is for another group, that I'll be traveling with this summer,  Santa Clara Vanguard.  Sorry for any misunderstanding.
                          Vanguard in the summer, FRHS during the school year.
                           
                          Will I have time to eat?  Four squares a day!  We travel with our own rolling kitchen.

                            PP told me when he was out here that they have an 18 wheeler commissary/kitchen that travels with them and feeds over 200 people a day!
                            There's a summer job for you and leechef! She can cook and you can be the instrument tuner!!!!
                            Hey PP! Can you post a picture of the rolling restaurant??

                              Hey Roadfooders!
                              If you've never heard a 1st class Drum & Bugle Corps Competition, you've missed a wonderful musical event! It will give you Chills & thrills like you've never experienced before! Look at the schedule above and if one's within 200 miles of you, it's worth the time and expense to go see these young people perform!
                              I've never heard anyone say they didn't thoroughly enjoy a "Drunkin' Bungle Corp" show!
                              In addition to the events Poverty Pete's group is participating in, there are numerous other events going on all over the country.
                              Here's the web site for DCI, Drum Corps International. Find a show near you and GO!

                                  Has there ever been a Roadfood gathering in Indianapolis?  August would be a great time.  Shapiro's is two blocks from Lucas Field.  Then there's Jonathon Byrd's,  Grey Bros.,  the beef stew place, and all kinds of other fine RF establishments.  Who's in?   Don't forget the root beer!

                                    Kinda funny, I lived in Clovis, Ca for 13 years. Mom, Dad, all 4 Gparents and a bunch more of the family are buried there. Still have some living there.

                                    One of my very best friends live in Ogden, Ut.

                                    So ole Poverty Pete will be all around my people.

                                    Good luck and enjoy the trips.

                                      We go up to Bass Lake often and pass through Clovis on the way there. Might have to set up a rendezvous with you!
                                       
                                      PS, Poverty Pete. I was the first ever electric bass player in a field band, first at my high school and then at Cal State U. Northridge. I was picked to use Cerwin Vega's prototype folded horn bass amp, running off six 24 volt batteries and with someone just to push it for me.This was my senior year of high school. Didn't hurt that I played in the school band as well as a jazz band with the son of one of the principals at C-V. When CSUN heard about it and found out I was starting as a music major, they begged me to play it and they worked out a deal with C-V to get another one built. Highlight---playing the half time show at the Rams-Saints game on national TV in 1973, playing to a full house at the LA Coliseum (92,000 in attendance). Ten million people watched the game and the half time show. Our featured performance included "Johnny B. Goode", featuring myself and the jazz band guitarist. He dropped out of school after that semester to go on the road with Chuck Mangione, then had his own quartet. He composes music for TV now. You might have seen Grant Geissman's name---he did the theme for Two and A Half Men. What memories!
