Annual CDI Event Featured Local Fine Dining & Downtown Shopping
Ted, Just wanted to update you on the CHS Crimson Cadets and Color Guard placement at the Oklahoma Bandmasters Association (OBA) contest in Jenks that was held on Saturday. Out of nineteen 4A and 5A bands, Collinsville came in 3rd place overall in Class 4A, behind Piedmont High School who came in 1st in 4A, followed by Sallisaw High School who came in 2nd. Collinsville was then announced, among twelve high schools as a finalist. The finale began at 7:00 pm, with the Cadets and Guard performing last at 9:45 pm. Out of the twelve finalists, the Cadets then placed 6th. Collinsville's band had two outstanding and very entertaining performances, and should be commended, as well as Ron Lewis, Richard Newharat, Bruce Roberts and Gina Lewis on a job well done. Congratulations! --Thanks, Kay Gerber 10/26/2008Vote For Thomas Isam In Tulsa World Poll (before Tues 3pm). Congrats to entire team.
