At the spring camporee, one of the events will be freestyle drill. This involves the whole club. So far, our routine is coming along nicely.

That's interesting Cailin. I wish our club could get that good. We're still on the basics and for some, a little advanced. I would love to get freestyle. I think that marching would no longer be so boring and lose so much interest.

Freestyle drill is great but it is not for every one. Those who truly want to do it are good at it, freestyle drill or advanced drill requires as much practice as learning a new instrument or language. For those who want to do it if you can find a creative leader it is well worth while.

This advanced drill team can or should be your honor guard for ceremonies and other endeavors, that will keep interest up. You should also take advantage of their talant to help teach drilling and marching in the rest of the club. An entire club effort can become cumbersome for freestyle drill, unless you limit most of them to little movement it will not look well practiced. It can look well practice if you have enough time, say 3 or 4 hours a day. Smaller teams have the ability to do more complicated movements with fewer mistakes, what judges are looking for at the fair. Good or bad they will be judged and an unprepared group can take a hit in there morale if they are judged harshly.

I always enjoyed drill and once upon a time was on an award winnning team. It is worth it.

The way to get the boring (not OR) out of drill is to get the Pathfinders involved in creating the new moves. Then everyone gets lessons on group process too. There is a lot of brain storming by the drill group. Then it becomes a group project, not a leaders favorite move that he tries to get others to carry out.

I have a wonderful little update to share! Our club is finally into freestyle! We will be performing on May 14 for the church as a closing to the Pathfinder year. We may even get a chance to perform at Dothan investiture. What are we doing you ask? Well, it's a really cool move - incorporating a circular formation march with a "to the wing" command. When the circle is formed, we do a couple of "to the rear" marches. When we're going back the way we began(circle clockwise) the call for to the wing march is made, at which point we do a 90* turn and take 5 steps(counted on each left step). At the end of the 5, we do a 180* and take 5 steps back and then immediatly turn 90* to begin the circle again. We then do a end of circlular formation. It's really cool. Words don't do the drill justice.

I remember a really cool move as a youngster before I was old enough for Pathfinders. I don't know how well it would go over these days. The pathfinders marched in a circle. Comming to a halt, they each sat on the knees of the person behind them.

Back in the days, one of our teens when I was still a junior, got an idea, I think his pasion with Gymnastics influenced him a bit! We have done it twice as a freestyle team.

It involves 4 big, buff, strong guys. and for of the newest, littlest pathfinders. It is a two high, the young kid sitting on the teens sholders.

We have long black skirts that go from the kids waist on top of us all the way down to the person on the bottoms ankles. They are see though from the inside but not the outside, so us guys underneath can see were we are going. The pathfinder on top wares his dress uniform, we have usualy done the sashes of the pathfinder teen underneath. It looks really cool and weird.

We do basic movements like Dress right dress, cover and present arms, hand salute with the kid on top and we do all the marching.

It is sure to place well and turn a lot of heads. :idea: :shock:

Try it! :D

:x Yea it took some indurence!! And you can only do so much at a time.

Most of our practice was with out the kid on top. Figuring out our ruteen and getting things presice. :wink:

:shock: :oops: :idea: :mrgreen: It shure made for an awesome marching group and the judges let a bit more stuff go because of how amasing it was :lol:

I mean some people thought we coudn't even see from inside the black material of the skirts :!:

The group isn't Pathfinders, but..... There is a group in South Central Chicago, (It is a non religious youth group) that are a drill team. They have some amazing moves. They preform in Wisc Dells at the end of Summer parade. Look to some of your local parades for Drill Team preformances , I know you will get some ideas. A few years ago we visited Washington, DC and saw the Marines at the Iwa Jima (sp?) memorial. They put on a great show. You get ideas from watching others, and the great thing is, you can modify the moves to fit your group. That way the routine now belongs to you.

Well, I was drill master for the first time this past fair. I led my group of 5 in a 50's style fancy drill!!! I had the time of my life. The girls wore poodle skirts and the guys jeans and white tees...and we all had sunglasses! Our moves had 50s names. We didn't do a lot of intricate things but we managed a basket weave and a few circle moves. My favorite was called "Twist and Shout." You start out marching and you call it on the right foot. Then you step out to the corner with your left foot and twist...got all the way around so that you hit all four corners. At the end, you put your arm in the air and shout, "Hey!" :smt041
We got 1st place!!! I was so excited!!! Anyways...I love freestyle drill teams!!! :D

If they have them in your area... they have many in mine lol... are juvenile hall boot camps.

They can DRILL AND MARCH. At the annual veteran's day parade, they clean up against all the ROTC, Pathfinder, Scout, and High school drilling and marching teams. But then again... they have all day to practice lol

OK- we have lots of new drills thanks to my advanced team's brainstorming. We're not allowed to do any greek or dance steps, it means points taken off.

Anyways:

Radial March - take 4 right flank turns to wind up back in the same direction you started from.

PT March - first row takes 2 right flank steps, scooting over just a bit, the rest follow, you will have to pass others following you.

Reverse PT March - similar to above except last line executes PT at the same time 1st line is. It literally is reversing the formation: The last line becomes the first line.

To the wing/Circular formation - same as a prev post but taking only 3 steps, turning to the rear on the 3rd step.

In line to the middle March - Similar to Inline marching, but to the middle instead of to the side. Pattern is: Middle, Right, Left. Group formation is obtained by the following pattern after the command (group formation) is given: Right, Left, Middle. It's really cool.

Left(right) box flank march- Execute left (right) box step first, but lead out with the normal trailing foot to execute flank to end the step.

We're going to be performing this at the upcoming Gulf States Camporee. Hope to see you there!

For sweetlips101's sake I am going to admit having seen a Hillary Duff(?) movie. Don't hold it against me, sometimes I get bored.

The movie is a Disney flick called Cadet Kelly. I mention it because it is actually a good movie for several reasons; as it applies to sweetlips101, you can indeed accomplish some fancy drill solo are with a team as small as two.

Some of the other reasons are demonstrated in the learning of self discipline and achievement through challenge. We as leaders must always keep our kids challenged.

God Bless,
