Denver Zoo and CBA State Championships

Saturday I went to the Denver Zoo with a number of friends from swing dancing.  The Zoo has definitely changed a lot since the last time I went a couple of years ago.  They have a brand new entrance and a new enclosure for the lions (complete with 3 adorable baby lions).  It was a lot of fun and something I should do more often.  Photos are on the photo page.

After leaving the Zoo, I went to the Colorado Bandmaster’s Association Marching Band State Championships at Invesco Field.  It was a great show by a number of good bands.  Congratulations to Dave, Erik, and Jane from Holy Shepherd for their Finals performances in Green Mountain HS, Chatfield HS, and Lakewood HS respectively.  The 2004 4A Champion was Loveland HS with a score of 82.04 and the 2004 5A Champion, and my alma mater, was Pomona HS with a score of 88.80.  Pomona will also be marching in the 2005 Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena, CA on January 1, 2005.
