As much fun as I had on Friday with the girls, it was a hard decision to make to attend Lynne's shower. I originally had plans to go to the Band Alumni night back at my old high school. Our band director of 35 years, Mr. Lydecker, is retiring and a huge Marching Band Alumni night had been planned at the home football game. I was on the Royalaire drill team back in high school and loved every minute of it. Our high school band was seriously good, I am not just saying that as an alumni. People didn't go to our football games to watch football, they went to see the band. We won state every year when I was a member and they only got better as the years went on from what I have heard.
My whole family attended the event that night so I did get to live vicariously through them. The marching band includes two drill teams, the Royalaires and the Royalettes. I was a Royalaire (flag team) and my sister was a Royalette (dance team). My brother also was in the band and played the snare drum. My brother went on to become a member of the Ohio State Marching Band and my sister was a member of the Ohio State Dance team. The Marching Band has been a big part of our family for many years in both high school and college.
Luckily for me, I found a lot of coverage of the event on YouTube and Facebook. Here are a few video clips and pics of the event. Enjoy!!!
The NRHS Marching Band with the 350+ Alumni who attended. I used to do this march up the hill every Friday Night before the football game!!
A song from the halftime show with the combined high school and alumni marching band members. My sister is down there dancing in the front. She was very sore the next morning!!
My sister before the half time show. I can't believe she just had a baby!
Ahh, those were the days, that was me, um, 15 years ago?

I guess it wouldn't be a proper band event if Mr. Lydecker wasn't rolled sometime during the night. I still can't believe they did it! Leave it to tradition....
