I stayed after Guard half an hour or so. Practiced the double toss with Mr. Mitchell some and talked for a bunch more. I asked about the flags for this year, and he was telling me a general idea they were having; I told him what I thought of when he told me about that, and he said he liked it. He even said he liked it better than their current idea and that he'd bring it up; I doubt it'll get anywhere, even if he remembers (or chooses to) bring it up, but it's still really neat that he said that. :)
I'm liking Winter Guard more than I did Sunday, but it's gonna take a lot this year to get us in shape. Show's tougher.
