Are you OVER 35 and still teaching? Read on...

Are you OVER 35 and still teaching?
Spinning rifle from your wheelchair?
Teaching toe points from your walker?



Several of us Old Bags have recently been discussing our rights to provide a few new rules to the World of Colorguard, so suck it up young 'ens and take note. LOL. Feel free to add your own rules but be over 35 and only teaching (not marching).


Rules from Aged Instructors of Today's Guards:



The first two rules come from Shelba of Tampa....


1. NO MORE Crushed Velvet


2. NO MORE USAGE of the word "Independent"

the last winter guard show I went to in Malden...the girls were "OUTLOUD" counting!!!!!!!!! Denise Russell-Perry would have thrown a rifle at our faces if we even "MOUTHED" the numbers!!! and...where are your formations??? nothing is crisp!!!
Comment by Christina (Oaktree) Galicia on September 16, 2009 at 10:23am
I say members today need to learn how to throw a toss, and catch it w/ their feet planted in one place, no more moving half way across the floor to catch it, learn how to throw straight up, and I can guarantee it will come down exactly where you are standing. Technique Technique!!! definatly missing!

I reserve the right to pull the " I have been doing this longer than you have been alive" card when the 14 year old thinks she knows better. :-)

I tell mine, I don't know what your talking about! I'm not tired how can you be! Keep goin!!! lol.....

all I hear is "I'm tired" . I say "quit whining and make the counts snap". the kids today are pampered and wimpy.
Comment by Vickie on August 24, 2009 at 2:20pm
Steve is so right on!!! Catches need to be solid! Snap moves need to snap! Use your muscles!!! Don't fluff your moves, hit the counts like you mean it!!! If I can snap any piece of guard equipment, and I'm in my 50's, these young people need to me able to! I can show them and teach them how, but they need to build up the muscle memory and do it!!!

I agree with Renee and Andrianna, I tell my kids "Can't means Won't" and if my 48 year old body can make it to 3 sessions a week so could your young one. New Rule We reserve the right to teach it and then sit down for a while, ha ha you can't, keep working! Working with young ones is fun isn't it?
Comment by Steve Horne on August 23, 2009 at 3:01pm
I like snap rather than fluff! Bring back a quad with snap rather than a 6 with fluff.
Comment by Adrianna Game on August 22, 2009 at 10:00pm
If you "know", than do it!

And I'm very much with Renee, I tell my guard AND band members all the time that I don't want to hear can't, I'm more than twice their age, old enough to be their momma and I can do it!

No more sabres that spin like rifles that spin like sabres that are having an identity crisis.

Please help me!

I'm proud to have been a part of the Golden Sabers because it was the best year of my life! Only, I don't know what year that was. I know, who could forget the best year of their life? Me, I'm terrible with dates. I was told it was 1983 & I hope you can either confirm that or correct it for me. We dressed up as clowns & our 1st song was circus themed, our 2nd was Abracadabra, & our last was Out Here on my Own (from the tv show Fame). I got chills EVERY time!! I was the flag…See More
