Awkward Drill Team - Co-Workers & Teams

“Group photo of my H.S. Drill team. I am top left. I think the band director wanted us to be ‘avant-garde’ but- well, you can see the results. This was taken at a competition full of adorable pom and cheer girls who were busy vaselining their teeth and finding matching scrunchies. Our music was something by the Doobie Brothers and the soundtrack of Labyrinth. I kid you not, we were instructed to emulate amoeba at the beginning of our routine. Which included hula hoops.”

    there is only one boy in the photo. he is second from the left, bottom row. the rest are the scruffy looking girls of the sycamore flag corps.

    i am actually in this photo. i must say it took years of therapy to get over.

    the flag corps coach/band director rode a motorcycle to school.

    it was ‘china grove.’ and labyrinth.

    it was awesome.

    My sister was in a flag corps. I would have to have seen their act. I’m especially amused by the fact they used the Labyrinth soundtrack!

    No fair, they get to have boys on their drill team! Our band director won’t let boys on our drill team. 🙁

      I love 80’s guards, going into my senior a group from our guard would get together and watch old guard videos we got from our directors.
