2008-2009 Marshwood High School Marching Band - Pie in the face

South Berwick, ME view map

All week long the Marching Band had been practicing, (yikes my daughter is in the High School Marching Band!). Tonight there was a special presentation for the families to see what they'd been doing all week.

At the end there was a marching competition, the last person standing got to throw a pie in the face of the band's instructor. Great motivational tool.

We were up in the stands, I'd already switched lenses, the 70-200 was back in the band and the 17-55 just didn't have enough pull to get a good closeup. However, with that said, this shot did get the entire band gathered around their instructor mere microseconds after impact. You can see two big chunks of cream frozen just behind his head (in the center).

My daughter (who is actually in 8th grade, High School Marching Band is open to 8th graders, a very good idea on a few levels) is in a white Tee Shirt in the front center with her back to the camera.
