11:15 am - Last Sunday's Coach's Meeting

I have to say, that meeting was a BIG help.  It reinforced a lot of things I had learned through experience last season and reminded me of things that I'd forgotten and told me things I didn't know.

A big thank-you to everyone who did this.

Michelle Hart,
Impact and Impulse Coach.

7:48 pm - CLINIC TIME!!!!!


St. Clair Independent
Independent A
St. Clair Shores


When? August 5th, 10 am - 4 pm

Where? Exact location will be determined very shortly. Most likely in the St. Clair Shores, Michigan area. The precise location will be posted once it is certain. If you message me expressing interest I will make sure to clue you in as soon as I get the word!

The cost for the entire day's worth of activities is only $10!!

The staff advises you bring (and I quote): A positive attitude, bag lunch, Sabre, Rifle, Flag if you have them. If not, there are PLENTY to go around, and gloves if you need them.

This clinic is not specificly oriented towards people trying out. If you want a good day of spinning it should be a blast! It isn't geared only towards people that are super amazing either so don't be afraid if you don't think your "that good". Thats what Camps are for!!

Also, it will be much cooler by the end of the week ::whew:: no 100+ degree days LOL It would be good to spin with some of you since we do talk about guard but have never spun together.


P.S. No you arn't just seeing double (or more) this HAS been XPosted like crazy ;-)

    Hey everyone.. This is Amanda updating for Lamphere Mystique.

    This year is kinda off to a rough start. Right now we only have one practice a week from 3:30 to 7:30. We have a whole lot of new girls, and girls who only have one season behind them. We have yet to learn any of the show yet. but.. we are doing.. Duran Duran - Hungry Like A Wolf. It should be pretty good if we can get these girls to really get into it this year. Last year that was our main problem. No one took anything seriously.

    Anyways. We have a girl from eXstatica, Monica, coming to write rifle work and what not. Im so excited about this because I have literally not learned any NEW rifle stuff since my freshmen year because we just kept re-writing the same stuff over and over again pretty much. She came in and taught us some new tosses and stuff and im just pumped about it. I take our rifle line very seriously for a few reasons. I figure if you cant get the whole guard to care, then you can at least have a rifle line who cares because you really have to earn rifle. We have a pretty small rifle line this year which I think is best. We only have 4 people on it. We will kick ass. :-D

    Anyways. I really hope everyone is doing good and is as excited as I am for compititions to start up.

    PS: I guess my guard is going to some guard night at I think John Glenn this year? lol. I have NO idea what this is really, my guard instructor just mentioned it to me about a week ago. Anyways. Let me know if your going to this.. and what the heck it is. haha. BYEE

    ... it smells like 4 brand new 36' Elite rifles complete with leather strap, and 1 36' Spinz rifle with leather strap on the way!

    *creams jeans*

    haha... i just though i would share with you all that i ordered some rifles for the girls on my guard who gave me money... and... the 4 elites came but i gotta wait another day for the spinz because it was shipped from a different warehouse..

    anyways.. if you wondering why i ordered one spinz... well.. i gave them a choice between eliote and spinz because there the same price and they look and sound like pretty much the same thing.. and i wanted at least one person to get a spinz so we could see if there was any difference... anyways..

    any suggestions on what to name the new member of my family? my first baby's name is Dimples. :-D

    oh yea... everyone watch ESPN 2 tonight in a half hour at 10... the DCI finals are on :-D

    So everyone.... I am marching Colorguard for Lamphere Marching Band right now... were in flight 3.. well.. let me tell you my story.... i feel like i am getting worst and worst everyday.. like im not getting challenged.. or pushed to do better... and as much as i try to push myself.. it just is like... i dunno.. but... anybody know any guard camps or tryouts or something that i might be able to participate in that might help me out? i love guard with all my heart but it seems like something is driving me further and further away from it.. i dont want that i happen.. i want to get better not worst.

    anyways... anyone going to the Lamphere Invitational on october 1st?

    hey everyone,

    i miss winterguard! colorguard is doing kinda okay.. were really bad :-/ but.. anyways...

    i suck so bad at like.. "character building" i guess thats what you could call it.. like... when i perform.. more then likely i end up looking like a deer in headlights... and i was wondering if you all have any advice for stuff like that.. and things to work on facial expression with.. because when i try.. and i think im doing what im supposed to... it doesnt end up looking any different then it did to begin with..

    anyways.. i hope everyones still practicing and whatnot.. HOLLER BACK YO. hah
