About those trophies...

I read this on my Yellow Board today and also a similar post just now on Facebook. Directors are taking their bands to contests just so they (the directors) can win a trophy. Given, I run marching contests, and we award trophies. Yesterday, I was in Houston-a city just weeks from suffering the greatest flood in the history of this nation. I talked to these directors-I heard their stories; what they, their students and families have been through, and why they came anyway. If you really believe it's for a trophy-you're wrong. God bless these men and and women and all their kids and parents for coming to our contest yesterday and giving inspiring, goose-bump worthy performances. Our trophies are made of plastic and wood. Their trophies are made of smiles, cheers, and young lives made musical, healthy and happy. Bravo!
