June 5, 2013 Wednesday Glendora
I am very hopeful the progress made Taft will continue. We have no option. They must be ass kickers
Stuff got done last rehearsal. We looked show ready, but 2 weeks is a long time until Preview Show. Kids need to practice. Mia pissed me off Sunday. She missed camp and was not ready for rehearsal. Mia, where are the 20 and 30 marks?, get in between. Really! We will be okay. I posted Vi’s tour packing list. That should be helpful.

Preview show rehearsal. It will be a good show. Everything is better once they get in uniform. No battery holes. Jazelle, Yashira, Scott, David, Albert(later dropped out), Sean – 1/5 of the hornline!!! Wth GRRRRRR Soo is helping the pit down the little hill. Jessica is maxing out!! 😀
Glen A Wilson HS
Waiting for the hornline for vizh warm up. Always waiting, grrrrr. Why does battery get into warm ups before the hornline ALWAYS! It’s only 4;40 and call time is 5:15, but the battery sections are in there zones and getting it already. Alisia (2011, 2012 alum) Just called. She and Leslie (2011, 2012 alum) are together and here at the show. They wont let them in the gate, of course they wont. Ha! They found an open unattended gate. Hang time with Lisi and Killer until hornline shows up
Breezy Shady Hallway!!!! 😀
Show was okay. Show delay because over 1000 people showed up and they only had 4 food trucks. The kids with the most consistent attendance had the best shows, go figure. Pit will be better getting off the field.
June 16, 2013 Tuesday Marina HS, Huntington Beach
Basics then drill at 1;30 What to tell kids that won’t follow directions.
June 18, 2013 Marina HS
Everydays!!!! 😀 MIA Deanna, Trey, Brian, Peyton, Jarred are still in school
Rocky start need to clarify specific time to start. Sectionals need to start at 10. PT time and check in time I will talk to leadership about when that should happen. Speaking of Serica brought me a beverage 😀 I brought donuts and muffins. Do you know the Muffin Man? NOT THE GUM DROP BUTTONS!!! Heeheehee 😀
Watching and listening to battery, should go check on hornline and on the way, pass by guard. Charging my phone. Lunch 1pm, dinner 5pm. I am going to change the schedule and take only one break, we need that extra hour to rehearse. What was Jeff thinking.
I had a good chat with Soo, then later with Serica. X Factor McGORGEOUS!!!! Heeheehee 😀 Guard time 🙂 sitting with a can of paint TAGGER!!! Horns wrapping up warm up. Drums just started into their music. Good timing, goo d instruction. Flag work is clean already. I am going to watch/listen to the hornline. I enjoyed listening to Nathan’s comments to the guard, nice detaling.
Only watched horns briefly. I was going to touch up gaks, but the middle yardlines were looking very sad. Ended up redoing the whole field. When I went by the horns, Jeff asked me to adjust their posture. It was already good, for the most part.
June 19, 2013 Wednesday MHS
Burrito V! Gaby. Heeheehee 2+3=Red Glendora, Amanda, Megan 😀 Inductive and deductive reasoning. No Peyton, Jarred, Nathan, Andrea. Lots of cake, pie, brownie talk 😀 Brought Brandon and Isaac today. I think that is going to be part of my routine. Niko is here today Sign in, PT went well and sectional started on time. Making it happen!!! YES 😀
Bridesmaids – gotta watch
I am guard staff this morning. Amanda and Megan did their drill team work from Glendora. It was quite amazing.
Guard actually got stuff done this morning. Adjusted the schedule to 45 minute breaks, transitioning to one hour long break. Sprinklers are going off at 7:45, gotta get kids off field by 7:30. Gotta get stuff done. Serica is getting it! Jeff has the hornline spread out over the asphalt. Didn’t get to see battery this morning. I brought a burrito for lunch.
June 20, 2013 Thursday MHS
Nathan not here for morning block. I got here late, traffic issues. Whatever, a good chunk of the corps was here. I slowed their progress. Kids can’t unload the truck if I am not here to unlock it. Ray the Tick! Okay, everything is open, horns are almost done getting their equipment, if battery doesn’t start moving soon imma start yelling at them. Battery caught a clue, good kids. Guard will be here at 10am. Don’t be lazy Ray, go to PT
New kid showed up. Looks like a solid citizen 😀 If Terry Moore has anymore we should take him too and cut that Henriquez kid. Jeff said last nights board meeting was interesting, I think that means kids are not making payments. Brought my phone and snack pack pudding to guard sectional!!! Called Jeff about cutting Chris if Terry can send us another horn player.
March 10th, it was a Tuesday (8th grade) Dylan and Erin, BF stories, except Megan, Peyton just got here
Gaby says somebody needs to get cut! Wearing her pink hoodie!!! Gangsta 😀
So the plan, finish up and head to 99 cent store for lunch
Guard is planning Harbor House breakfast on Sunday. They invited me Brandon and Isaac, I don’t want to get up that early, plus we have to leave before them. It’s a good idea, I hope they forget about me by then.
That was not an effective block. Not as effective as it should have been. Music ensemble with pit should have happened before lunch. It was 4 hours long, plenty of time to have gotten that done. Every little thing is going to be alright, but we, as a staff, need to communicate better and run more efficient rehearsals.
