With their field show entitled “Impressions: Visions of Van Gogh,” which portrays the life and paintings of Vincent Van Gogh, the Charter Oak Marching Regiment has returned with full force. Two weeks ago, Oct. 21, the band competed at Baldwin Park. Although it was a hot day, the band gave their best and received second place with color guard earning sweepstakes.

With a show coming up the following week, the band worked hard to improve their score. On Saturday, Oct. 28, the band competed at Sierra Vista High School.  The band, percussion line and color guard each received first place. The marching regiment also received first place in two other subcategories: music effect and high visual effect.

These next two weeks will include nothing but hard work and dedication for the Charter Oak Marching Regiment.  With the season coming quickly to a close, the regiment has three competitions left before knowing whether or not they will be making it to championships, which includes the top twelve bands out of twenty-seven in the division. Everything that they have worked for will lead up to championships. All of the blood, sweat and tears that they have shed will be worth it in the end, if they are able to compete.

For the seniors, days are limited before their last season being a member of the regiment comes to an end. Others may have one, two, three, or maybe even four years of competitions. There are middle schoolers who have already joined the program.

However, for the marching regiment, a score or a place in the top twelve does not define us. Although getting first place is one of the greatest possible feelings, nothing compares with knowing that we gave our all and that we performed our best show yet.

While the results of most recent competition on Thursday were a disappointing fourth, Charter Oak Marching Regiment plan on continued success in the upcoming competitions.
