Cadets Winter Percussion got on the bus to embark on their first trip to the WGI World Championships on Wed. night, April 9. They returned four days later as World Champions. Here's a little overview of their journey to Dayton.
The convoy - complete with The Cadets equipment truck, bus and pick-up truck - arrived early Thurs. morning at 6, and the members were given some time to get a good breakfast before unloading the truck at 8 a.m.
"They rehearsed all day from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.," said Director Rich Hammond. "It was windy, like insanely windy. They were good though; they made it through rehearsal."
