Home / Band News / Excellent Job Today


First let me say THANK YOU for the wonderful turnout today. This was one of our finest performances to date. I was honored to march with each and every one of you in the parade. Thanks again to Joe Harwell and his wife for the parking and storage area. There was a Grayson Cave sighting at the parade. It was nice for him to be able to break away from the books for a couple of hours and march with us. We missed Lloyd today, but he was fulfilling the band mission elsewhere.


I understand things went well in the park and at Tir Na Nog. I unfortunately was unable to play in the park due to a prior engagement…..a new born at home that eats about every 3 hours around the clock.

What about that refurbished Bass Drum? John Kilduff sported the new look for us today. Thanks to Annie and Pete from the Tir Na Nog for their generous donation.

The next four kilts are on order. More about that soon.

So an announcement was made today and I am not sure everyone got the message, so I will recap. Joe can correct me if I get anything wrong. The band now has some much needed NCOs. Joe has appointed John Schodtler as a second Pipe Sergeant to assist Bud Barber. Dave Hamelin and Sam Baer were appointed to Pipe Corporal positions. Eric Hahn was named the Senior Pipe instructor. In the drum line, Sterling Cave was appointed as a Drum Corporal and Mike Bishop was appointed Drum Corporal in the Tenor Drum line. We have seen now that all of the help on performance day really makes a difference. I congratulate all of the appointed officers and hope that they will be able to assist Joe and Jamie with their respective duties.

Anyone with pictures or video from today, please get them to Joe so that he can pick a few to put on the website.

Thanks for all you do!

Tony Crawford
