I usually see Dan there somewhere wandering around the marshalling grounds taking photos etc, and then he rides his motorcycle in the parade itself. I will pass along your greetings!
What a lot of work organizing the band for this... we have some pretty finicky people in the group... retired professionals who are used to running a well organized project. Half the effort is dealing with them. This should be my last ever parade organizing gig, and possibly the last gig in general I organize for this band. I truly love the group but if I have to do much more of this the work will out balance the enjoyment and I'll start to resent it. Time for others to take over.
The weather looks perfect.
