The Final Lap!

Whew — what a race!

Lancers and families — that was officially one of the smoothest and most amazing trips that I have ever taken with a group. Thank you all for being so phenomenal and representing Mankato and Minnesota at the highest level. Thank you to the chaperones and staff that traveled with us for helping to make sure everything happened at the highest level. It takes a village and we made it happen!

Now we have one week left of racing and a finish line to cross!

Tuesday

MRCI Community Concert | Thunder of Drums

We will meet at MRCI at 9am to unload the trailer and warm-up, the concert begins at 10am and we will be wearing our tour shirts, black shorts, black socks, and marching shoes

From there we will dismiss (for lunch) and return to MSU at Noon for the clinic with the Blue Stars — dinner is provided and we will stay at MSU for the remainder of the afternoon/evening

For Thunder of Drums we will perform a portion of the Race and a version of the National Anthem that we will learn and rehearse on Tuesday.

Following Thunder of Drums we will clean the stands — the whole group will stay and be dismissed together following the show
