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!
