MISSION REPORT: Weird Al Yankovic Concert

September 2, 2010 – The Coronado – Rockford, IL

Event Coordinator: Cheryl Whitaker (TB-3127)

Another great troop! Everyone met up a little early at Swilligan’s, a small establishment about 2 blocks from the theater, and then made our way to our dressing room back at the Coronado (and what a beautiful theater it is). It wasn’t long before “Hawkeye” (one of Al’s crew members) came to get us to explain the way the night was going to play out on stage and gave us a little guidance on the basics of our routine to the song “The Saga Begins”.

After our briefing, we were given a CD player with the song “The Saga Begins” in it, for us to take back down to our dressing room so we could practice our routine. And so the fun of putting our own little spin on things began….

This was an amazing 1st troop in the white armor, thanks so much for letting me join in! I can still hear the crowd erupt when we walked on stage :) Definitely a moment I will never forget.

Awesome troop, everybody!
And a great mission report, Whinter!

One thing -- are there any more embarrassing photos that you could post of me shaking my ass? If there are, please let me know what it'll take to keep them from ever showing up! ;)

This was a great event. I really enjoyed it. Weird Al and his crew were very nice.
