Lone Star Memories
Thanks and Links

A recent addition to the growing alumni directory brought with him a list of his favorite drum corps memories.  I think such things deserve their own special place.  So if you have any "unique" memories being with Lone Star, feel free to email them to me.

Most Memorable Moments:
 
Even though the scores didn't reflect it, seeing the crowds response to our show, nothing like it.
 
Zee and all of those damn Jolt colas.
 
Disney World was a blast, one thing I haven't figured out is how a few of the members were able to get the Glass handle off of the beer tap at Epcot and get out the door without anyone seeing. Looking back seeing some of the stuff the corps made off with is hilarious.
 
Practice in the middle of Salem, man were allot of the residents pissed because of the noise (AWESOME).
 
Getting off the bus and going through our pre-show routine of silent stretching, tai chi, etc... and seeing the other corps faces wondering what the hell we were doing.

Stu and Pancakes.

Robert thought it would be a good idea if at base camp that the staff cook breakfast for the kids. So we get up and Robert and I attempt to make pancakes. When it came time to wake the corps, Stu had gotten up early and volunteered to wake the corps.


He donned a bass drum and tipped toed into the middle of the gym. He then started beating the hell out of the drum and started screaming at the top of his head "GET UP! GET UP AND EAT SOME DAMN PANCAKES!" *BAM* *BAM* *BAM*.

good times.

I believe this was during the 93 tour.  Stuart Spoon refused to shower all summer long and then the corps' members forced him into the showers at our housing site in Mississippi during DCI finals week.  Man he stunk to high heavens!
