Mini Tour Member Perspective...

I first joined the Raiders back in 2013, and I had no idea what to expect.

I had only one season of experience in color guard, and it was with a scholastic novice indoor team. Joining a drum corps was a huge difference and a huge challenge. Even though I struggled, and I wasn't exactly the best member of the team, I persevered, and made it all the way to the end.

I came back in 2014 and was on the rifle line for the first time. Again, I struggled and was challenged, but I made it through, and by the end of the season, I was much better than I was when I came in. I'm back for the 2016 season and I'm on the flag line, rifle line, and sabre line. Every season I come back, I'm always faced with new challenges that seem almost impossible.

But now, about halfway through mini tour, I know that I can get through it. Being with the Raiders taught me that no matter what, if I keep a positive attitude, and put my best foot forward every single time, nothing will be able to stop me.
