There's a 'we hate sam movement'?? that's strange... never heard that one.. but of course, I am in the color guard, and we're definitely in our own little world full of drama on our own lol... how's getting members going, anyways?
For the guard, I'm not sure. I've contacted several people who might be interested, but they weren't at all. Stef and Kari are now trying to recruit people. Overall, the numbers are looking really good for the band. We definitely have 81 people, but we're looking at about 90 if we had more dance team and colorguard people.
Screw the "we hate sam movement" all those stupid people are just jealous and can't deal with the fact that you are great at what you do--not only that but you are one of those people in the band that no matter whats going on you always have something positive to say (not just because its your job :)) If anyone gives you crap you have the "we support sam movment" to back you up...
And yes, there was a movement made by one or two people my sophomore year, because someone was very bitter because they weren't chosen to be drum major. I'm not going to say who, but they've graduated and the issue is a closed deal. There are still some followers of the "movement", but they're in the minority. This issue has mainly been from teh wind players, the guard, dance team, and drumline have behaved themselves :).
You would think that since this is my senior year and third year as drum major that things would calm down, but there are a few people that are really antsy about me leaving because they are so desperate to be drum majors themselves. So pray that we'll have good candidates for drum majors, and that Mr. Sawyer will find the right one for the band.
