I'm writing to the people that have shown an interest in marching.
One day I was talking to Tom Erb, maybe a month before the reunion, he said something like "I think it would
be neat if we could put together a BK Alumni Marching Band"
We talked about it for a few minutes and then dropped it.
Well, I had so much fun at the band practice, and at that point - even before the reunion in the evening -
I decided I was gonna push for this.
So I put up a poll on the website. I figured we'd get maybe
5 - 10 responses, after all, people won't be visiting the website
AFTER the reunion. Well I've heard from more than 20 people so far and I can tell you, this is a go.
Most of the major issues have already been resolved. The biggest issue, Tom purchased a number of drums (snares, tenor, bass) that we can use (most of us drummers don't have marching drums) in addition to a tuba.
So, I just wanted to keep everyone up to date. I'll be sending out another email sometime around mid September. Also, I'll be posting updates on the website.
Here's just a few of the responses we've gotten so far.....
