This is the view from Kelly Conlon's Drum Major podium, today- NOT at dusk but this afternoon.
Due to the crazy-insane chilly weather this week, the kids are dressed for warmth rather than visibility. But this is a great opportunity to point out the difficulty of visualizing field lines and formations when kids are dressed in dark clothing.
White shirts really pop, especially on sunny days. White makes it very easy for those on scaffolding to see how accurate the lines are. They also help the kids judge their own position based on someone standing many yards away.
We plan to have a second round of practice shirt sales in September but any white shirt will do. Once the weather's back to normal, the white shirts will come back out again and I'm sure the directors will breathe a sigh of relief..
