      Hi everyone. Here is one of my Cavalier memories. This picture has to be one of the greatest pictures in the annals of Cavalier history, and maybe in the history of old-time Drum Corps. The color guard shown here is great. I remember that day clearly. We marched up South Street and the wind was roaring as we crossed West Street moving onto North Street. I remember telling Phil Bouley that I couldn’t hold my flag with one hand. We came to a stop and suddenly the photographer came out, settled himself down in the middle of North Street and took this picture. WOW!!! I think that this picture was on the cover of one, or more, of our Programs. I remember Ed Clevenger marching with us that day next to Phil Bouley, Charlie Stickles, Mark Stockton and Rick Powell. I forget the name of the man on the left but I think the one to the far right is Pete Ochs. The others I cannot identify from memory. Sorry that my memory is faulty, I welcome any additional comments. Come on you guys, you remember this stuff, please give us your memories. We all shared it.
