Default First parade on Sunday

So... the two "senior" DM's of my band are busy this Sunday, when we have our first Memorial Day parade...which leaves ME in charge. I am excited, but nervous. I don't want to goof it up! Thank you to the folks that have given me advice, I am taking it all in and trying to use it. Wish me luck..tonight is the last practice before Sunday!

The best part is, it is entirely possible, given my geographic location in the BOONDOCKS! I live in the middle of nowhere... I see sheep and cows and various livestock on a daily basis. My best friend has chickens at her house...so maybe I should get some blinders for the parade

If the band starts sounding softer and softer, slow down and/or shorten your pace! The mace doesn't weigh as much as pipes or drums!

Anne, tie a rope around the PM's neck and around your waist, just to make sure he follows you. Like , pipers will follow their leader.
