Important Message!!

Kind of like a self-assessment thing...

Ok, so maybe you finished last in your class in every single competition since season started. Or maybe your band/guard was the top in every competition you entered. Maybe your guard had a really really bad season, or maybe you guys rocked. Maybe you've felt that horrible heart-twisting feeling that your guard really didn't do so good this season too many times.

Put all that behind you for the moment.

How do you feel about YOUR personal performance this season?

Think about it for a minute.

Did you put your personal all into the season? Did you try your best and for the most part, did you do what you had to do?

Most importantly, did you have FUN?

That's all that matters. Having fun and enjoying yourself while you're out there performing. Colorguard/band isn't about scores or class placements or judges or anything like that. It's about having fun. Sure, it feels really good to win...but...

A judge just sits there all day and talks into a little plastic box.

That isn't so important.

What's important is what you got out of the season. Think about all those times you've had with the members of your guard and the members of the band. All of those practices, the sweat, the injuries, the tears, the laughs, the work...the EXPERIENCE.

Think about it.
