I hatehatehatehatehatehatehatehate HATE band camp. I don't know why I haven't quit yet. It's 8:30-3:30 out in the sun all day, and it's just awful. And it's too late to quit now, since I signed away my soul as of Monday.
On another note (still band related) today we were practicing and two guys come out of nowhere carrying a pane of glass with a giant suction cup attached to the middle. The thing is, I didn't see the pane of glass because of the angle, and I go, "Holy crap, look at that!" Of course, by then they had changed directions and it was perfectly clear that they were carrying a pane of glass and the suction cup was not, in fact, floating in midair.
Someone come save me, please!

I would give anything to relive my band camp days. but then... I'll assume it was easier for me, cuz I played mallets, so all I did was stand and play in the heat as opposed to march and play in the heat Wink .

but I would love to do it all over again if I could, those were the happiest (and some of the most drama filled) days of my life Very Happy .

You're lucky! My band camp was from 8a-8p. We had a lunch break and a supper break but that was it. You are very lucky to get out at 3:30.

I was such a band geek I even played in college at CSU. And now once a year I relive the glory days at homecoming in the alumni marching band! Complete and total geek, i know.

I play mallets, or KPIs (Keyboard Percussion Instruments). Basically a piano keyboard, but bigger, and you hit the keys with mallets (can someone explain this better?!)
I was an idiot today and I forgot to put on sunscreen. So, now I've got a fantastic farmer's tan and a reverse truck driver's tan. The only fortunate part is that I don't have to march.
sillyakchick, my best friend plays the mellophone! We've got 7 this year, I think. And every day at band camp is alumni day. Mostly the seniors who graduated back in June come back, but so many people who graduated 5 or more years ago came back this year. They don't march with everyone but they teach whatever instrument they played during sectionals in the afternoon.
And for the record, band camp is NOTHING like in the American Pie movies. I think that there needs to be a reality series about band camp and the marching band season. It'd be much more interesting than Laguna Beach or The Hills or whatever.

Lunch.

I have actually never gone to band camp but I spent every summer at different colleges going to music camp. The best thing about those was hooking up with the college guys Wink

The best part of band camp is when the show starts to pull together and you get to do a number all the way through. Then when the last note rings out after the music stops, you feel chills! It's a rush. In a completely nerdy sort of way.
