You all looked great when I saw you a couple of weeks ago. Congratulations on your recent band reviews. Seeing you all out there brought fond memories of my own kids when they marched for Amador!
Great picture, Rachel!

What happened, Foothill didn't participate...

Naw!! Just a little good natured "cross town trash talk"...:):) I enjoy listening to Foothill practicing in the evenings...

Seriously, congratulations to Amador High. Good job and have fun the remainder of the season.

Great Job, Amador,

We certainly always have winners with Amador and Foothill always taking 'some' title!

Oh you mean Amador still has a marching band? I thought the noise complaints from the neighbors would have shut that down. Good job to the kids for their hard work and dedication.
