I prefer to call you guardos, but we are actually called drummers, and i think it would be funny calling you gals/guys guarders.

They're not saying that they can't come, they were just wondering why the guard is the next group that visits this forum the most other then the obvious (drummers).

I agree, we do feel a certain connection because we arnt exactly connected with the band, same with colorguard. See what Im sayin? and I prefer to call colorguard members guardos and drumline people drummers. I dont mind if the hot colorguard gals come on our forum, the more the merrier(sp?) Basses Rock! :D

You spelled it right, Waterhead, but TMRQuintKid used the wrong form of then... it should've been than.


At my school we're just guard and drumline. Then after that we use real names. I think drummmers and guardo/ees have a closer connection cause usually we get the same busses, and both groups are kinda different from the band. Plus... you guys seem like you only date eachother.

That's not fair. I wish we got to share a bus with our drumline. In Feild Season we always had to be on a bus with the Dance team. We kind of have this Guard/Dance team rivarly going on... ya. It probably would have been funner with the drumline on our bus

We don't have a dance team. Usually we're on the bus with the juniors or the juniors and the DL. It was really annoying last trip because they were all practicing at the back of the bus and my seatmate wanted to sit there with her bf... if they had all been playing the same cadence or something, I woulda been like "yay.. amusement" but it wasn't.. it was just random drumming and the guy who was yelling at all of them had the most annoying voice... I wanted to shove his drumstick down his throat..


I swear I'm not violent.

When the band and colorguard went to London this one bando brought drum sticks everywhere with him. I think next year he wants to be on the drumline, but he tapped everything and played beats on the arm rests on the bus all the time... it can get annoying... especially if your trying to sleep
