During Spring Break, the Band was able to escape the northeastern “spring” weather and fly to Waco, Texas to support the Women’s Basketball Team in the NCAA tournament. On Friday morning, we took a chartered plane out of Newark with the team and the cheerleaders and landed directly at the regional airport in Waco.
That night, some of the Band treated itself to some wonderful Mexican food and all-you-can-eat chips and guacamole, while the other half of the Band raided Mama & Papa B’s Bar-B-Q for some fantastic homemade chopped beef sandwiches and ribs. In addition, some of us experienced the local art.
On Saturday, the Band explored all that the city of Waco had to offer. We started off with a trip to the Dr Pepper Museum, where many floats were enjoyed by all. In addition, the Band discovered the existence of Big Red, the beverage, and learned all about free enterprise.
