| August 24, 2007 | 0 Comments

“Make your third/tab [cheater tape] markings the same color as the pole but with extra tape so students can feel where they are without having them visible to judges who can pick people off for a hand placement not quite on the same checkpoint as the rest of the guard.”

– Guillaume Eek, Impact Independent Winter Guard
