Every year we travel to Dayton, Ohio for the WGI Percussion World Championships. We still have a couple months, as the event is in early-to-mid April (this year April 14-16), but it is already time for tunnel-vision on preparations.
So many similarities from my days designing and directing for the drumlines participating in the event. Design and production is new every year. On travel and logistics, we try to stay consistent each season - even with prices higher every year without fail. Booth spaces get built and tweaked on weekends. And all this while preparing this website for new items, product photography, and fresh on social media.
All this adds up to our most challenging and rewarding event of the year. If you happen to be at the 2016 WGI Championships, you must come hang. We'll be in the Expo tent. (And at Skyline, and Bargos, and Headquarters, and... )
