So I just want to post, no real reason. That's pretty pointless. The only thing I really feel I should talk about (though I don't really want to, because later I'll come up with a more coherent post on the same subject making this whole post quite pointless) is the fact that next year the CHS Marching Patriots will be getting new uniforms for at least part of the year. The picture of the concept drawing will be posed later when it is up on the internet.

I'm still frustrated about the Aussie hats (not tricorners), but since I've resolved to create a petition and seem to have a lot of support in this aspect, and I've convinced myself I need to calm down and try a more mature approach to do any good, there really isn't any feeling or need to rant anymore.

Just... yeah, if you have ideas for the petition, please drop some comments. I don't know if I want to create an online petition and risk having immature signatures and comments, or a physical one. Anyway, here's some notes on what I want to say, and what I have so far:

"To whom it may concern," [because it's going to Mr. Sens, too, not just the directors (meaning Edgar and Sou who made the decision without Mrs. Minge, I believe), and maybe even Fred J. Miller and Cesario (the designers... Sou and Edgar would hate me forever if I did that, haha)]

"We, the undersigned, believe that the tricorner hats are an integral part of our marching band uniforms and our school spirit."

That took me about 20 minutes to write... once I sat down to write it yesterday I drew a blank on all my rants. So. Other things I want to include:
1) The fact that we hope that by taking this approach it shows our maturity in our beliefs and our passion in the call to action to Save the Hats.
2) The fact that we are willing to do what is necessary to keep tricorners, not that we want them to find a solution, but that we want to help. This is the most integral part, I think, and I have no idea what to really say.
3)I think I may stick this at the top of the petition: "God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference."
4) Any possible solutions. Is it a matter of money? The hats themselves? It can't be physically impossible. If it seems impossible, and the hats don't seem to exist, what are the qualifications that the hats must fit? Probably plastic, sturdy, waterproof, not wool, but that's just going by the hats we have now. What are the Aussie hats made out of? What color do they want it to match the uniforms?

Any other issues or comments, please, ANYTHING, I need to do this, and I need all your help. The sooner I get this out, the sooner we can get signatures and the soon we can show them that they can't get rid of the hats, before it's too late and they order them.
