San Benito A Guard
HS Open
Show: "Paradise Lost" featuring the music of Claude Debussy

While we are not doing very many NCBA shows this year (money constraints), we will be appearing at the Wilcox show.

Perhaps when we have more funds available, we'll be able to do more shows next year.

I'm new to this whole ColorGuard website thing, but I just have got to say, While I was visiting a friend, she had mention that her sister was performing this pasted weekend. Her sister performed both at Armijo and Fairfield High School. So I went with because I used to do ColorGuard back in Hawaii and I wanted to see the big difference between my old Guard and California Guards. Well we watched her sister perform and a lot of other Guards perform too. But I have to say that one Armijo Show was my favorite. It was amazing, and so beautiful it made me cry :cry: . After they finished performing I was so full of emotion. It was like they were telling a story that I knew to well. I know now that I'll never be able to listen to that song the same way again and that I am now an Armijo High School A-Guard FAN!!! :bow: You guys did an marvelous job with your show and I look forward to watching you guys again. :)
