Celebrating 40 years of WGI.

The Top 40 Winter Guard International Shows
Alta Marea Winterguard

In my seven years of color guard, I have seen countless shows on the field and on the floor. Throughout high school, a majority of these shows were seen throughout the South-Eastern Color Guard Circuit (SCGC). Although my high school did not attend WGI competitions, I still had the opportunity to see a few compete at some of our local competitions. Today, I am a member of one of those teams that filled several of my memories as a young performer, and the magic of it all still resides in my heart. Having the opportunity to finally be a part of something that you have worked so hard for is one of the most priceless feelings. This upcoming season will be my senior year as a member of The University of Alabama Million Dollar Band Color Guard, who many in the "winter guard world" know as Alta Marea. Looking back on all of the years I have watched shows live, or was sent a link via youtube, I have comprised a list of "The Top 40 WGI Shows", to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Winter Guard International.

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,
