Getting Ready to Go!

Today was the South Jones Band's final day of practice before we load up Friday and head to Washington D.C. We've been getting ready for this trip for a long time, and now it's almost here! We marched today for about an hour in the school parking lot, and it sure is going to be nice marching in DC, surrounded by historical places most of us have only seen on TV before!
Just to introduce myself, my name is Ashton Robertson and I'm one of South Jones' two drum majors. I am a junior there, and I play the saxophone.
