    Dress it, Roll step, Flank, Park n Play, Pose, Follow the Leader, Blitz, Forward Press, and Lean are some of ours in our band. Some of them are special moves we have.

      I know exactly what you're talking about. There's 'turn and go' and 'follow the leader' and 'dress the line'. My favorite would be 'horn flash'. *giggle* Its great when you are talking to a nonband friend about it and you say stuff like that and get weird looks. They get totally lost. haha

      I KNOW IT!! Thats when they tell you to pretend to squeeze a grape between your butt cheeks to keep your posture good. I always heard squeeze the marble, but i figured that meant the same.

      Guess for the penguin one . . . Does it have anything to do with a plume? We've said it before about our plumes . . . The joke we do with all the freshmen is "Hey, you're plume is on backwards." (It really doesn't matter if its on a certain way.) They freak out and feel the plumes. Its funny. Kelsey

          Oh, I get it. Yeah this kid in the sax section broke his hat, so the plume didn't really stay in place. He's not the best marcher anyway, he kind of waddles. Yeah, so when he marched, it flopped all around and he looked a heck of a lot like a penguin. And we wore our full uniforms Friday at the Fball game. (85 degree weather, with wool uniforms. Yuck.) I picked the most gullible freshmen and told him his plume was backwards. He was actually TOO gullible. He didn't get the joke until half an hour later. haha, I laughed my head off though! I actually got to "Park and blow" yesterday at an all day Saturday practice. We were learning drill for "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" and I don't actually move for 5 whole pages. Its great being one of those "crucial endpoints" because people have to guide off you, so you are never wrong. Good shtuff. Kelsey
