    my brothers and sisters of the boc something wonderful has happened to me. about a year ago i found out that i was selevted for an invitation for the Nebraska Ambassadors Music Tour of Europe 2007. Its for all highschool students and i was the only freshman in out 107 person band picked out. im a sophomore now but its me and a senior that are going. i will be leaving on june 9 and getting back on the 24th. we are landing in london england, from there we are going to france, from there we are goin to switzerland, and then to lichtenstein, from there im going to italy and we are leaving from frankfurt germany. all for the price of around $4100. i know we can make the fee so im about 90% sure that im going. I play the trumpet and not even our section leaders got picked to go. im proud of myself. o and any donations would be appreciated (send me a PM) because we are still about 3000 dollars from gettin there lol. unfortunately i wont have enough free time to try some catfishing :(. o well. i will be home for a week after i get back then im headed off to estes park in colorado for the 4th of july haha my summer is booked with vacations. in two months i have to go to this small town here in nebraska to find out what chair im gettin. im shootin for 2nd cuz thats what i usually play but 1st will be fine too. lol. i have to spend around 3 days in either freemont or milford nebraska right before we leave so we can learn our music because we will have no practice time once we get to europe. i will be sure to take many of pictures and post them up here when i get back.

    You will get a lot of oppertunities to represent groups of people in your life. Take advantage of all of them because that is only going to benefit you in the future!

    Congrats again my brother!

    Wil, that is so COOL. Sorry I haven't see this thread before now buddy, CONGRATULATIONS! That's just great, and I second everything Leslie said. I played first clarinet (second chair) when I was a sophomore in HS, but I sure never got to go on a trip like that. (That's why I love havin' you young people here on the BOC, us older ones can live vicariously through you :lol:.) I know you'll have a wonderful time and make memories to last forever and ever! Woo hoo, you go little brother :big_smile:!
