    It was a huge night for the Emerald Brigade at Foothill last weekend.  The competition level was a couple notches higher at this show with the likes of Folsom, Amador Valley, Mountain View, Lynbrook, and Rodriguez among others.  The Emerald Brigade performed an excellent show with some very cool new props, and wowed the crowd and the judges.  Their sharp performance earned the Brigade many awards including second place in percussion, third place in color guard, first place in brass, third place (tie) in woodwinds, General Effects Sweepstakes (in a tie), Visual Sweepstakes, and were named the Field Show Sweepstakes Champion!  See the Foothill competition page for more details including scores.  Congratulations to all on a great night!

    Congratulations to the Emerald Brigade and Color Guard for their great showing at the first field show of the year at Oakmont.  Granite Bay really pulled the show together in recent weeks and the outcome was a very strong outing at Oakmont.  Granite Bay finished first in Percussion and Color Guard and took first in the Gold Division of the show.  The Brigade also took home the Music, Marching, General and Grand Sweepstakes awards for the entire show as well.  If you missed the first field show, please come out to Del Oro High School or another one of the shows and see this year's show.  It really is good and worth seeing!  Great job Emerald Brigade!
