FROM THE ARCHIVES: End of Season Gift Ideas, scheduling for WG and ENCORE!

| November 1, 2011 | 0 Comments

It’s Tuesday again – goodness the weeks fly by don’t they?

Tuesdays at CGE mean that we’re looking back through our archives to find articles that are relevant to this time of year to save you time so you don’t have to search!

First up – end of season gifts!

There are many fun ideas in the archives.  These two gift ideas stood out for this week:

Team Teddy Bears by Julie Baldwin (10/22/2010)

You Rock! by Catina Anderson (2/19/2010)

Next up – new business!  Tips for creating your winter guard season calendar.

Scheduling your Season and Creating Your Master Calendar by Catina Anderson (5/29/2007)

and finally – an article about “ENCORE!” – a post-season performance put together by the coaches in Loudoun County, VA to celebrate the seasons, have a final hometown performance after the shows are all complete and give back to the community (it’s a great recruitment opportunity too!).  We’re posting this one now because the best chance of having a good turn-out lies in getting the date for the show on the calendar at the beginning of the season.  It’s about the time to start contacting the other local coaches, securing a performance site and getting it on the calendar.

ENCORE! Celebrating Success and Making a Difference by Catina Anderson (1/12/2007)

Please help us get the discussion started here on our newly redesigned site!  Your comments on our old articles will help breath new life and fresh ideas into what is here already. You can help continue to build this resource for color guard educators everywhere!  Thanks!
