Drum Corps Luau
Give yourself enough time to travel safely to Le Sueur. This is a new show this year and our first “read” from DCA Judges this season.
9:00am – Field lining (two fields)
10:00am – Rehearsal
12:00pm – Lunch
1:00pm – Rehearsal
3:00pm – Shower, dinner on your own, get ready to perform
5:00pm – Warm-up
6:30pm – Gate
6:39pm – Perform
7:00pm – Full corps retreat – this is similar to what we’ll do at DCA Finals with some exceptions noted. Immediately following our performance we’ll line up on the track near the end-zone instead of exiting the stadium. Front Ensemble and equipment will exit the stadium per normal; change out of uniform, load the attic, and stage the rest of their equipment until the battery loads. The rest of the corps will line up single file (colorguard, hornline, battery) and enter the field at the back into a designated 10 yard zone.
This will be quick as there are only 3 competing units. Minnesota Brass will salute/attention when our name/score is announced. Afterwards feel free to say hello to our fellow competitors as everyone exits the field casually. Battery should immediately load equipment, then change out of uniform so the front ensemble can finish loading. Everyone else can change first then load per normal.
Red Wing Parade
There is one bus heading down to Red Wing from Cottage Grove. It only holds 50 people – unless you want to squeeze a cheek and go 3 to a seat. The 50 people on this poll have dibs, others will have to carpool.
South Washington County Schools District Office
7362 E Point Douglas Rd.

There is very little parking at the staging area. Those who are driving will have to find parking and walk to the staging area. The trucks will likely be parked somewhere near Central Park where the standstill is at the end of the parade.
We are unit #48, staging on 6th street between East Ave. & Bush St.
