Gerig carries on the Tradition

Airband was last night. As I mentioned earlier, I was out stormchasing & missed the show (and we would have to pay for performance tickets & stand in the hours-long line... I'm not a college student anymore, I guess.), but I heard it was a good show...

Gerig performed Tradition, from Fiddler on the Roof, and carried on the dorm's tradition of first place finishes, for the 5th win in 8 years. Amazing! I'm so excited for them!

I went last night. They now have two showings. We went to the one at 6:30 and waited in line for 15mins and got seats that were maybe 10 rows back.

Gerig's was definitely the best! I thought they won 4 out of the last 7, but I could be mistaken.

2001 - Joyful, Joyful
2002 - The Devil is Bad
2004 or 2005 - The sound of music
2007 - Tradition

Am I missing one?

You know, I think you're right. I was going off the information left on my voicemail.

Since 1991:
1991 - Won. Don't know what they did.
--- Didn't participate for 10 years.
2001 - Joyful, Joyful - Won
2002 - The Devil is Bad - Won
2003 - Aladdin - Didn't win
2004 - Didn't participate
2005 - The sound of music - Won
2007 - Tradition - Won

Does this sound right?

So, to put a positive spin on it: Gerig won 5 of the last 6 times they put a show together. When we bother to do it, we do it right!

That's awesome! :)

It would be cool to see a video of all of the past Gerig performances.

Yeah - Go Gerig! Woo-Hoo!

I got goosebumps just thinking that I'm apart of that amazing tradition - I was in TWO of those four winning performances!
