Drill Team Performance

Postby Woodruff on Thu May 05, 2011 11:01 am

Alright, so I had to come back and make one bragging post. I've been hoping to get a chance to brag to you guys for quite some time about my Color Guard and Drill Teams, so here it is.

As part of our school's Distinguished Alumni ceremony, a few of my AFJROTC cadets performed a Color Guard and a Drill Performance. This is part of what we do in competitions against other schools, so it's not really what we teach in class itself. But it shows you some of the fun things we do outside of class. We've been doing Color Guards all year, so that team is good at what they do. But I'm particularly proud of the two young men in the Drill Performance (both are sophomores), as they had really only been practicing this routine for about two weeks at that point (as you can see right at the beginning when one of them turns the wrong way). This was also the first time any of our drill team members had performed in front of the school's student body (and they got a standing ovation, which was nice):

that was awesome! The gun swingiing was unreal! only 2 weeks? wow! My favorite part was when they threw the guns in the air and at each other and caught them. It must have taken a lot of practice in order to get that good without making any mistakes in that drill. Yeah, that one guy was still a little slow on some parts, but he still was able to spin the gun with ease and catch it without a problem. That was pretty cool, thanks for posting that. 8-)

Ive had to sit through a few of these before. This was pretty good man. They had to have busted their asses if this was just a two week routine.


cheers

Nice work Woody. I'm no big fan of big patriotic displays, but I'm a huge fan of seeing students displaying pride in themselves and what they've learned. They were really impressive.

Looks like they have a bright future twirling batons on the cheer leading team.

I'm sure you took time to instruct them all to be tattle tales and to call everyone idiots all the time, Woodruff. Since being an example is the best way to teach.

Have I missed something? I've never really liked Woodruff personally because of the nah-nee-nah-nee-boo-boo reading comprehension comments, but when was he ever a tattle tale? I'm guessing this would be in another forum. Link?

Woodruff is constantly trying to get people banned. Most hilariously, with posts and threads that have nothing to do with him. Then he calls them idiots. Often, he'll send people angry PMs, telling them about how they're worthless human beings, etc. If you reply telling him to shut up and go to hell, he'll take you to court. Seriously! He'll threaten real legal action against you just for telling him to leave you alone!

Anyway, I'm sure he imparts all of this to his students. He must be very proud of himself to brag about it.

That's all.


Maybe if he takes some time off he'll stop working so hard to get people banned, but in the meantime, he deserves just as much derision as he dishes out.



meow, indeed.

wow, someone is a fucking crybaby... I cant believe I had you foed.

lol


woodruff is doing something positive in real life. 70% of the people I meet everyday , do not.


hats off to him. Kids are the future, and we as a global community really do not instill values like what it took for these kids to achieve what they did in such short time.

Is there a future in twirling batons?

No asshole, there is a future in diligence, hard work, discipline, and pride in each action. Which is what these kids had.


In the future when someone posts about something positive, do yourself a favor , dont look like a goober.

Oh okay well I guess you showed me.

Please post a video of your sweet karate chop moves to further show how right you are. Or at least describe some time you used your karate moves to beat some up. That'll intimidate me into respecting you for sure.

your respect means so little I cant even type it man.

Im not a great communicator. That is well documented. But to be a dick when someone is proud of his students and posts it.... well... I got nothing... gl and welcome back to foe.
