Back in the day, I had great relationships with James Pham from Whitney, Winston David from Notre Dame, Sam Audong from Loara, Ben Jiang from Arcadia, and Liz Ballinger from El Dorado, to name a few...

I can't reiterate enough how these days will imprint themselves eternally in your lives, and whether or not you continue to pursue music or not, you'll look back to these experiences and remember them amicably! :D
the past is not an oversight!

OK, people, let's go way back in Northern California. We're talking Kris Harper (Director @ Cupertino), Kathleen Harper (now Jones) Rick Wilson in the San Jose era (BTW, Rick has a great resource for Drum Majors: http://countryhearthgalloway.com/). All these were late 70s, early 80s. Back in the DM "Show" Competition, it was Donald Priest who perfected multiple tosses (3 batons @ once!).

Thanks for letting me trip back to the 20th century.
You are right!
Im happy to read this.
