    Very cool!
  13. Washington High School Band Director Jim Tallman and his wife Jen were among the victims of Sunday's tornado in Washington. I've never met a more supportive and dedicated man than Jim Tallman! He's always been there to support the Morton program whenever we were in need. If you have the resources to help, a fund has been set up for their family at the link below. I'd love to see us give back to a family that has given so much to others!

  14. Shows/Scores for September 7, 2013

    Some captions were out of 150 instead of 200. VPE, VPI, VGE, MPI were 150 each. MPE and MGE were 200 each. With the decimal move, which is normal, you get your straight addition to a total 100 possible. This was a new system this year, as they added a judge to the panel. Everything was 200 last year when they had 5 judges.
