Thursday marked the last day of a three day stay in the city of Hattiesburg, Mississippi. Following a thrilling and excellent performance the evening before, the corps was on fire for their rehearsal at the same stadium in which they had competed. The name of the game was refining changes to the show, a common happenstance that is about as prevalent as the showers the members take after hot and muggy days.
Well, at least for most of them, that is. Time is a valuable commodity after all, and in such times when there isn't an instructor correcting a set, or making a musical comment, they tend to make their own little games and pranks to liven up the mood. In this case, the new "game" for the corps was "What Are The Odds?", where the members ask the key phrase, followed by something that is either outlandish, or just funny in general.
It's the type of humor that keeps the members focused and keeps in line with the spirit of the corps - a collection of young individuals who take having fun as seriously as they do when they rehearse. It's a heathy balance that definitely works, especially into the last two weeks of the season - where this upcoming weekend finds them in three different states: Tennessee, Atlanta, and North Carolina.
And after that, less than two weeks and poof! Fin.
