12th Annual Spring Fling
What a long day! Today was the NFL Draft Day, and the Raven's Spring Football Festival. The Pep Band performed at the festival, and at the Orioles game that followed. We set ourselves up on Raven's Walk, outside of the stadium, and played for the people who were lined up to enter the stadium. This year, we did less playing - we alternated with the drumline, rather than playing a set of music, then having them perform. When we went inside the stadium, we played for about half an hour before taking a meal break, then we hung out until it was time for us to play at Camden Yards for the people lined up to get into the Orioles game. Right before the game, we set up on the field and played the Raven's Fight Song, then were taken to our seats, where we played in the middle of the third inning, and for the seventh inning stretch. It was a long, tiring, warm day, and we wore our regular uniforms. Luckily, it wasn't as hot as had been predicted. Overall, a decent day.
