I am a part of the Blugold Marching Band (BMB) and have been for four years now. It has been quite an experience to be a part of this group. Communication within the group can be complicated because each individual person has their own positions on the field. No two people have the same spot on the field. So three hundred unique drill position to learn for a 10 minute show so quite an accomplishment. I think the most effective part of our communication occurs during our preseason camp. We all meet for a week before the beginning of the school to quickly put together a show. Our communication during this week works so well because we all want to be their and their is a great atmosphere that encourages everyone to participate. This group is task oriented but I personally feel that it is a social group in my opinion. The social aspect and the atmosphere and people that are in this group are the reason I love being a part of the BMB.
