Colorguard Historical Society

When I marched with St. Anthony's Imperial's way back in the 70's it was an unwritten rule during competitions that you should not make eye contact with anyone in the stands let alone make eye contact with a judge. But in 1973 one member of the Imperials broke the rule. She dared to stare at a GE judge during most of the routine which prompted the judge to make several remarks on our tapes ie. "Please tell your captain to stop staring at me!" This was what prompted the genius direction of our instructor, Bruce Leo. The following year 1974 we came out with "Magic To Do" and at the precise moment in the music "we've got magic to do...just for YOU!" Bruce instructed the entire corps to turn and point directly up to the judges. The "point" as we called it was intentionally meant for one judge but was received by many judges and fans. It was consider shocking...a mockery...but the point was it worked! The audience came to love it and I think the judges did too, at least all but one.

Who was the judge? Oh, never mind - it's not important. But boy do I remember that! Too funny
