You, Marching Cardinals!
would like to thank the directors, staff, volunteers, band and
color guard members for another great marching band season.
Everyone worked very hard to make “Carmen” a
terrific field show. They logged 500 hours of practice time! The
Marching Cardinals placed 2nd at both the D.C. Everest
and Merrill competitions They also competed
at Irondale High School in Minnesota and at Menomonie. They
also performed for the band fans in exhibition at the Homeshow.
Thanks to Chi Hi’s special guests, the UW Eau Claire
Bluegolds Marching Band who also rocked the stands. At the state
marching band competition in Whitewater, the competition was tough
and they didn’t place as well as everyone hoped for. Despite
getting hailed upon during practice, fighting through lots of wind
and very cold temperatures, they did a great job! For more
information about the state competition see WSMA’s website
Notice our very own Doug Greenhalgh (in the black jacket and blue
jeans) co-directing seniors from around the state during a special
performance of "America, the Beautiful".
Final Performance! The band performed for the final time
this year during half time of the football game on October 21st.
It was also the last time the seniors would play with the Marching
Cardinals. You did a great job, and we’ll miss you!
also thanks the parent volunteers! Thanks to the Mayers’
for food planning, prepping and volunteer directing. Also, thanks
to the chaperones for feeding everyone and all their hard work!
