ICYMI: FloMarching Offseason Update & News

With Thanksgiving behind us, we can finally breathe and start taking in this 2018 offseason as fall band quiets down and the WGI/DCI rehearsal schedules pick up. I thought I'd put together a quick update since we've been doing a lot of planning behind the scenes to get some pretty cool content over the next couple months and we're ready to share some of that.

Over the past few months, we've been going through the process of hiring a new content creator to the team and have been completely overwhelmed with impressive candidates. That should be wrapped up soon.

Let's get into the good stuff now.

Upcoming Trips

As I said before, we've been planning a few trips for December and January that are going to be pretty cool. In mid-December, we will be traveling to Arcadia, CA to get a very early look at the Mandarins. The corps will be holding their last audition camp for the 2019 corps throughout the weekend. We will be talking with designers to see what they have in store to follow up last year's historical season and keep their name in finals.

In January, we will be out in Los Angeles to hang out with some indoor percussion groups. How about a visit to Remo, Vic Firth, Ziljian and more? It's all on the way. And then, before you know it, it'll be WGI season.
