May 09 Update!

Revolution are delighted to bring you an update to their 2009 season so far. Feel free to get in touch for more information.

Camp:

Revolution recently held a visual camp at Batley bulldogs rugby club. The weekend was a first for revolution as we only usually have one camp per year, which is usually in September. Revolution by the end of camp had managed to march 6 minutes of show, to a half decent standard. Within the next few weeks, revolution will be cleaning up their show and getting it to a good standard for the first competition.

 

George’s day:

As you may know, Revolution, as Queensbury Scouts, usually participate in two parades for St. George’s day. This year, the Bradford one was held the week before camp and the Halifax parade in the same weekend as camp. This meant that after a weekend of rehearsal we could perform to a good standard and show the crowds what we are capable of.

 

Northern Preview:

Over the past few weeks, Revolution have been preparing for the Northern Preview which we will perform at over in Manchester on the 9th of May. Revolution are once again delighted to be performing their show to a good standard and hope that the concert will go well. Revolution members are also looking forward to seeing other units and see what our competition will be like for the season.

 

New Brass Instruments:

Revolution recently received a lottery grant for a whopping £10,000. This was a great accomplishment for the corps and will be used to buy a full line of Jupiter Quantum marching brass instruments. Towards the middle of the 09 performing season, Revolution will take delivery of 6 trumpets, 4 mellophones, 4 baritones, and 2 marching tubas. This will be a great addition to the corps and we hope that our division winning brass sound will improve immensely.

 

New members:

Recently, a workshop run by Matty Wrigley at Whitehill primary school attracted 2 new members. We are looking at rolling the same format workshops at other schools, all students enjoyed the day and so did the members. Thanks to Olly, Mike, Jack and John for helping out at this workshop.

Revolution also have an open baritone spot for the second half of the season (or 1st half if you're quick!)
