They also hired Nancy Brown to be the tour director. Nancy did an amazing job with the Blue Stars tour in 2008 and 2009. The Scouts will be in good hands on the road!

BILL COOK!

Bill Cook will certainly be financially aiding the Scouts. Make no mistake about it. He has followed Jim Mason wherever he has gone, as far as supporting Jim. That includes Blast!

I will also make a bet that the uniforms will change and we will not seesomething that wild in the colorguard uniform, like we did last year.

I also wonder how much is in the MEG coffers, as well.
