Real power in numbers.

My son played in this band. They recieved a wonderful award for their "Work It" show from last year. A press release read:

Western Carolina University’s Pride of the Mountains Marching Band is the 2009 recipient of the prestigious Sudler Trophy, the nation’s highest and most-coveted award for college and university marching bands.

Western Carolina is the first institution in the state of North Carolina and the first member of the Southern Conference selected for the award, which has been called the "Heisman Trophy" of the collegiate marching band world. Past recipients of the honor include the universities of Texas, Michigan, Illinois, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma and Alabama, and Ohio State, Louisiana State, Penn State and Auburn universities.

They will also play in the 2011 Tournament of Roses Parade.

    We did have similar ideas! I'm so clumsy I would take down the whole band, no matter how much practice! I love the pic and you got it at the right time too!
