Outback Bowl Florida Trip Page

Just to have all the links to the 2017-2018 Marching Band Trip with Jet and his band mates...

Day 1: Clear Dry and Cold.
Day 2: Getting to Thaw
The rest In Short and then In Color with plenty of pictures and stuff. 

There's also videos of all the high school bands playing together at the Outback Bowl Halftime show.
From a news broadcast.
From a fond father following the various band members as he could spot them.

Dry, Clear, and COLD

At 8 am, at Silver Creek High School it was 5 degrees Fahrenheit, that's -15 Celcius, and the band percussionists and other intrepid band members were there to load up the van. There was one problem, there was no van, yet.

It was supposed to rentable at 8 am from a storage facility, that Mr. Legg, the band director, found out wasn't open until 9am. Then they said that there was a facility a block away that was supposed to be open at 8 am, so John, Jet and I drove there only to find a sign on the door that said, "Closed until December 27th". So Mr. Legg called around and found a place that was open at 8 am in North Boulder, nearly a 20 minute drive away... but it really was open and someone answered his phone call.
