CORRECTION: Look at Gold's website - the audition time is scheduled for 11:00 a.m. NOT 9:00 a.m. This has been confirmed with the membership director. Hope no one's confused.

^^My guess, because they're probably expecting more to audition than will actually be in the corps. I think most corps only buy enough instruments for the size of the corps, not the number of those auditioning ;)

Guard Guy 05 is correct. Gold only owns enough horns to field 50 horns.
