Seriously! i know im sounding really whiny right now but wherever i go its always about Color guard or band or cheer. When are people gonna look at us drill teams and be like wow theres some real talent right there! Don't get me wrong, i LOOOOVE my band and color guard but seriously it sucks sometimes when you're like "Yeah im on the drill team." and people are like "the what?" lol thats all for my rant now...but serioulsy does anyone feel the same?
its not that you are underappreciated its that drill teams are a thing of the past. if you notice there are not too many groups that have drill teams. the drill team thing was hot in the 1970's and 1980's. and they started going away from them in the late 80's early 90's. so many people do apprecaiate drill teams but its not that common anymore.

Yeah i guess you're right. I was being a whiny poo for saying so anyways. But that is true tho cuz i know that there arent that many drill teams around.

Hey! LakewoodDinosaur


I totally understand you. But you must understand too that Drill Team used to be alot popular back in the late 80s and early 90s. Most of what used to be Drill Team got converted to Color Guards now. When I was in high shcool. I used to be there Student Advisor or Assistant Advisor. And mys students used to get like you. But they just kept going on what like to do and forget what other people had to say about it.
