Evening Rally–Just before the Bedlam Game


Last night we went to the Pre-Game session in front of the that the band does before they march down to the field.  This was nice because all of the tailgating is in full swing and the smells of food cooking hang in the air on a pleasant fall evening.  The Drum Line and the Front Ensemble warm up and play several percussion only selections followed by the full band.

 

I took some additional video until it got to dark and then I switched over to just still pictures.  The sound quality may not be as good due to the generator that was running a short distance away; however, when the band played I think it probably was louder than the generator.  I’m amazed at how fast there hands move during the exercises

Bedlam Game Day – Cowboy Marching Band Warm up / Recording Session


This morning, Anna and I walked over to for lunch before she had to play her warm up session at the which is right across from .  I snapped some pictures before they came out and then after they were playing.

I also took several short videos. which I will post later.

Bedlam Bonfire at Oklahoma State University


Monday evening, I drove over to Stillwater… the Idea was to head over early afternoon and see Anna’s band practice and then take the kids out to dinner and then go see the Bedlam Bonfire at 9 PM.  I got a late start on the trip as we were doing some yard work at my mother in-laws and getting some things squared away.  The day was beautiful with temperatures in the upper 70’s.

The drive over to Stillwater from Bartlesville was pleasant… The plains are interesting.  You get to see the “texture” of the land as you drive through.  Back east that is hidden by all the trees.  Both are beautiful in their own right, but I think I prefer the trees on a day-in / day-out basis.

The sunset was nice (if you can get past the bugs on the windshield).

 

I did not get there early enough to see the start of band practice, but I did get to see the last 15 min our so .  Anna was one of the few that had her coat… it cooled off quickly that night into the low 50’s with a bit of a breeze as a front moved through late in the day.
