Traditions

The hornline members can be seen wearing Buddhas on chains around their necks in warmups. Buddhas are given to members toward the end of Pre-Tour camp. The white beads on the Buddha signify how many years a member has marched with the corps.

In 2004, the corps performed "A Celebration of Life: Mind, Body, Spirit" As a result, the Doxology theme was incorporated into a corps song that was sung throughout 2004 and at the beginning of 2005.

Trivia

On July 12, 2001 the corps was practicing at Huskie Stadium at Northern Illinois University. The coach of the NIU football team ordered the football players to run through the corps, which ended up injuring two corps members. article - Strength Coach Fired, Other Disciplinary Actions Taken[2]

In the summer of 2003, the corps was the last corps to perform at the Normal Il show, before a tornado warning cleared the stadium for safety reasons. The corps performed even though the storm had completely engulfed the stadium by the time they were finished with the show.

In 2005, the color guard bus was hit by the equipment truck of Capital Sound while driving out of the parking lot from the Madison, WI show.
