WGI Indianapolis & CGN Franeker Show Recap
This past weekend was really successful for the Rhythm X, Inc. performance ensembles! Competing at the WGI Indianapolis Regional, both Percussion and Winds took home first place with high scores and Percussion breaking 90! European X competed at CGN (Color Guard Netherlands) Contest Franeker, also taking home first place in Open Class Percussion with a score of 87.25. Check out the recaps below:
Competing against another CGN Champion, European X took home first place by a solid 3.5 points performing their production, "EXpress." Their big trip across the world to WGI Championships in Dayton, Ohio in April is coming up soon and we cannot wait to have the whole Rhythm X family together for a whole week!
Thanks to Fred J. Miller, Inc., both the Percussion and Winds received parts of their awesome new uniforms for the show this past weekend. The Winds' black uniforms, with pops of color and a little bit of sparkle, both complement and contrast "the prettiest tarp in WGI Winds," as well as our gorgeous Adams Brass instruments. The Percussion uniform continues to evolve with the addition of torn and textured shirts, custom designed by FJM's Byron Valentine for "The Alpha."
The X Store was open once again at the WGI Indy Regional with apparel, X-Plugs, water bottles, and Tim Jackson and Tim Fairbanks Signature Innovative Percussion sticks. Keep your eye out for brand new merchandise next weekend at The X Store booth at WGI Mid-South Championships in Bowling Green, KY! Get it at the regional before it's even put online!
A huge thank you to the parents and volunteers who provided meals for the members of Rhythm X this past weekend helping fuel them through the regional. Everyone at Rhythm X greatly appreciates your endless support and generous donations. Another thank you to Franklin Central for housing both ensembles at the Franklin Central Annex, with great facilities, awesome staff, and convenient location to the show!
Next weekend, both Rhythm X Percussion and Winds will be competing at WGI Mid-South Championships at E.A. Diddle Arena in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Come see us perform and keep up with the ever-evolving productions, "The Alpha" and "Aurora" - no two shows are ever the same! Visit The X Store booth to be the first to get the all new 2016 Rhythm X Merch! Hopefully we will see you all there, but if not, tune into Facebook Live to stream Rhythm X warm up in real-time!
