I want to share this picture with the DCI community on tumblr. This is a picture of my dad, exactly one week before he passed away. Before he was diagnosed with cancer, I had asked him to attend one of my shows with the Mandarins. I wanted to share with him what meant so much to me. When he got sick, I realized that this would be the only time he ever got to see me perform. As the weeks passed by his condition got so bad that asking him to sit in a bleacher in 100° weather would just be cruel. He wanted to see it anyways. My sister connected him with a Fan Network account. He got to watch me perform at DCI West at Stanford. That was the last time he ever saw me.
This was the most important moment of my season. Not at Lucas Oil. Not at a regional. Not even on a field. It’s not about placements, it’s not about the best solo or the craziest visual. It’s about these precious moments, and who you share them with. 

This is a great reason to love DCI right here.

So as you know, my friend and I have been tossing around the idea of selling t-shirt rugs in corps colors in order to raise money to march this summer. Well we’ve come up with a new, better idea, and this is where it has gone. We’re selling pillows that we’re sewing in any patterns requested. We’re specializing specifically in DCI pillows but are also doing high school colors/uniforms, and sports teams. So far we have a few Corps pillows up, but we’ll be adding more as we make them. Each pillow is $15.00 with $8.00 shipping and 100% of the profit goes towards helping us march.

We’re also taking requests for any custom pillows. These can be made through the contact page on our website, or by emailing pillowsattheready@gmail.com 

Just a reminder! I have a Phantom pillow and it’s awesome!

a-drum-corps-baritone asked: Do you know any Soundsports on Colorado?

We don’t, sorry :( Follow DCI on twitter, they are constantly posting about newly formed Soundsports!

queenmishacollins asked: AAGGGAHHHHAHAHAHDHASDFASKDJFHASDJK!!! Everytime I go through your blog, I get chills! I wanna be in a Corp SOOO bad! But I can't D: Love you <3

Sure you can! Don’t think you can’t! Thank you for loving us :)

nevergiveup1241 asked: Are there any DC's in or around the washington D.C. area?

The closest world class corps to DC are probably Cadets in Allentown, PA, or Jersey Surf in Camden County NJ. There may be more DCA corps closer to you though!
