Tradition had a lot of "firsts" in Rochester Labor Day weekend. Two members of the snare line performed a percussion duet at I&E and received first place. The Tradition brass section earned their first HIGH BRASS award. The percussion section earned their first HIGH PERCUSSION award. The corps earned a first place score in VISUAL. The corps also earned a first place score in GENERAL EFFECT.
But, the most special and rewarding "first" that Tradition earned was the very first FIRST PLACE CHAMPIONSHIP in Tradition history! In fact, if you want to expand the "firsts" a little further, this is the first championship by any drum and bugle corps in the Tri-State area...ever!
