we had a DRILL TEAM! DT! DT!

Bahahahahahaha

Every time I hear "Another One Bites the Dust" (which is annoyingly frequently at sporting events, LOL) my limbs start to flail to the beat.
Not attractively, I might add.

I can remember all the fun times we had on the bus trips to all our games. Best time for me was when we won the championship in basketball, twice!
Like you, I remember the song, "Another One Bites The Dust!" Boy does that bring back memories! Kristin

I remember being on the drill team. I, too, have to keep my arms close during "Another One Bites the Dust!" Fortunately I don't remember the entire sequence -- just the opening and the ending -- so I don't embarrass myself by dancing the whole thing!

Not only did we have an amazing drill team (the very best drill team I've ever been on), but how many of us were part of the Explorer Scouts, especially that wonderful weekend trip we took in the rain. Susan-- your parents took us there in a wonderful luxury benz ride and just left us there, (we didn't have cell phones back then to say, "come back and get us!") We were stuck in the rain for the entire weekend. Nothing was dry, we were cold--- remember we couldn't get our jeans off because they had fused to our bodies. The tents were wet, the sleeping bags were wet, and oh my gosh--- the toilet paper was wet. We had to pitch a tarp to get a fire going and got smoked. It's a wonder I ever went camping again.

My very favorite was the awesome skiing we had!!!!! Best skiing in the world, I think.


btw-- does anyone remember the whole routine-- because, you know,---when we do have a reunion we will HAVE to do an encore performance of "another one bites the dust"

OMG Susi, I totally forgot about Explorer Scouts till you mentioned it! My recollection of that rainy weekend was that we had NOTHING to do so we had to sit around the fire (smoke) and listen to Rick Loomis read his English assignment (Madame Bovary, I believe).


And I only remember the first part of the routine, sad to say.... You'll have to lead us at the reunion!

I know...I wasn't exactly part of the DT (the sweater didn't look that good on me) , but I did enjoy watching the practices in the space between the cafeteria and auditorium. This little site has lyrics and sound...go ahead...start it up!

Thank you, Tony, that was very envigorating. I think my children only know the Wierd Al version of that song....we're big fans!

I do remember that camping trip with all the rain -- didn't we give up and go eat in the cafeteria? I don't think we could get the fire started for breakfast. My favorite trip with the Explorers was the overnight with the hike up to Austria to the hut, and then kayaking back to Germany the next day (I can't remember specific location names). All the trips were great. I don't do much camping any more, though -- I'm a Bed and Breakfast gal now!

I have to tell you guys that I actually found PICTURES of that infamous campout the other night while looking for school pictures. I have no recollection of who took them or how I got them, though. I'll try to scan them as soon as we get the scanner set up here at school.

I had no idea anyone ever took pictures of that trip. It was one of those things I didn't think anyone would ever want to remember.

I was also in Explorers (for a very short time). We camped out on the golf course at Dachau. I remember prior to the trip we stole a bunch of bottles from the chemistry class. We had a great time setting them on fire in the middle of the number 9 green. It's a miracle we didn't blow one of our fingers off. I also recall lots of smuggled beer and some serious hanky panky in the tents (it was co ed if you recall). I have no idea who our adult leader was...they were no where to be found while we destroying Army property. I think the Scouting movement would attract a lot more kids if the campouts were all like ours LOL!
