    It's still on the parent page. It is now black ink:

    Plebe Candidates' First Parade, Friday, July 24, 2009 at 1600
    Parents are welcomed to attend but there is to be no contact with
    the P/Cs. The Academy is still closed to visitors for Indoc.

    Several local and very gracious parents have offered to take pictures and post. Can't wait.

    If it rains, will the parade still take place on the football field?

    On a previous thread, they said it was broadcasted last year but the audio wasn't really that good. I don't know about you, but I'll take what I can get.:biggrin: I'm planning to hang around the computer today....(as if that hasn't been what I have been doing all week)..... I need to get back to work and get a life or at least the laundry done.

    Some local parents have offered to post pictures too. It's a good day!

    link to pics for parade

    Hello all, just got home from the Parade. THE PC'S LOOKED AMAZING!!!! I am in the process of uploading a Picasa link, sorry new to this, but I will figure it out, to all of the parents and family that couldn't make it, your PC looked fantastic in uniform! all 5 companies performed great! I tried to take as many photos as I could. The 3rd Company was down a noticable amount, sorry to all those parents, anyways go thru all the pics, I tried to get close ups, feel free to email me at rackets1@optonline.net if you want me to email individual photos, I always shoot with highest resolution so they are big files. The weather was great and the entire class was BEAMING with PRIDE, They wanted to strut their stuff. The staff knows what they are doing and the young men and women that we left there a short 2 weeks ago are well on their way. As soon as the Picasa link comes up I will post it here first.

    I will be getting my photos up sometime tonight or tomorrow. Echoing what was already said, the class looked great, and the Band sounded good, too :)

    My upperclass son just got hit with the flu thing that is going around - so he is now in quarantine along with a bunch of PCs. Should be an interesting 7 days for him.
