Can we have some pictures?[edit]

one or two stills or closeups on uniform coat of arms. I'll go back and check to see if there are youtube links in the Externals list. thx --Kristinwt (talk) 03:48, 7 November 2010 (UTC)

Stub Category[edit]

There is not currently a stub category for performing arts, which is where this belongs. As a result of this missing category, there are also no categories for drama, musical comedy, melodrama, performance art, marching band, drum corps, operetta, and several other legitimate performing arts.

Concert classes[edit]

Shouldn't percussion concert classes be included in this? Ericore 18:55, 25 March 2007 (UTC)


Correction[edit]

It was put in the article that every color guard has different instructors for different aspects of the performance. This is not necessarily true, as it is different depending on the resources of the color guard. Such as the color guard I compete in only has one director that is present regularly, and we have a drill writer who comes in once a year, and we have a staff that comes in to work with us during practices every once in a while. Also, not all guards just have a captain for leadership. Many have more than one captain, and some have lieutenants as second-in-commands. Again, it simply depends on the organization.
