Bluecoats Indoor traveled all the way to Atlanta to perform at the WGI Atlanta Regional this Saturday and Sunday. Our final score on Sunday was an 86.300.
Performers met on Friday evening in Indianapolis to board Bluecoats busses driving down to Atlanta. Saturday morning we gathered for breakfast at Carlton J. Kell High School before beginning our rehearsal. After rehearsal, the performers ate a Bluecoats provided lunch while they got ready for prelims. We then headed to McEachern High School for our first performance of the weekend where we were greeted by stands full of cheering audiences and even some “blooing” – a welcome the Bluecoats Drum Corps often receives.
Sunday we had a quick, but productive rehearsal at Campbell High School followed by a delicious meal sponsored by Cynthia Shega! Our speakers and set pieces were then covered with tarps to prepare for the rain that would come as we got into the performance gym for finals. Special thank you to Kennesaw Mountain HS, East Lincoln HS, and Georgia State for helping us get on and off the floor throughout the weekend and especially during the rainstorm on Sunday.
Before we began our bus ride back home we gathered for our fried chicken dinner sponsored by Charlie Cullen! If you’d like to help #FeedBloo you can sponsor a meal here to provide the cast with show days meals!
Next weekend will be a regular rehearsal weekend for Bluecoats Indoor as we continue to work on our 2019 program, but you can catch “The Gravity of Reality” next at the Brownsburg Community State Preview on March 15.
