Transcript Marc to the Spirit T really had a great time at the Barn, but it's like moving from an apartment to a big new house." Band Member Aaron Brown Don LeGrand Celebrating its 50th birthday, the band made plans to build a monument on campus near Lynn Eusan Park and relocate from the Band Annex, also known as the "Big Red Barn!' to new facilities in the Moores School of Music. "I really had a great time at the Barn, but its like moving from an apartment to a big new house!' said band member Aaron Brown. Although the band did not participate in marching contests, they did perform at halftime for all home football games. They also traveled by bus to Tulane and the Liberty Bowl to perform. "We always try to put forth the best performance possible because we compete against ourselves. But its nice if we blow the other band out of the water!' said member Skip Schultz. In order to reach those performance standards, members practiced daily from noon to 1 p.m. in the Athletic/Alumni Facility. "We have some of the best conditions for a college marching band in the country. Many bands don't have an excellent facility like that to practice when it rains, let alone everyday!' said Band Director Robert Mayes. The band members also practiced music and marching steps on their own. On game days they met two hours before game time in their new uniforms to practice again. Band members had to learn to march to several different shows, sometimes with only a few days to memorize the routine. "We learned a show in three days, but it wasn't that hard!' said member Melissa Lowry. "It just takes a great deal of concentration on band and listening to what the directors said" (Continued on Page 190) Organizations The Cougar Band Lines up to start playing DURING HALFTIME.
