222 X Big Purple The Big Purple marching band traveled to San Marcos to play in locally televised football games in its second season directed byjohn Whitwell. The band played at the ACU-San Angelo game instead of attending a weekend retreat at Brownwood as they had plan- ned. "We didn't go to the game just because it was being televised," said Whitwell. "We wanted to present to the Southwest region the best impression of ACU we could." The band planned a trip to Denver, Colo., to play during the halftime of the Denver Broncos vs. Pittsburgh Steelers game, but because of the National Football League strike, the game was cancelled. The final decision not to go was made the day before the band was to depart. "October 3, 1982 . . . a day that will live in infamy," said Whitwell. The band kept its sense of humor about the disappoint- ment and had a "wake." Band members dressed in black and wore black armbands. They decorated the band hall to look like the stadium in Denver complete with an NFL symbol in the middle of the floor. They hung murals of crowds and put up goal posts. The thermostats were turned down so the students would feel like they were in Colorado. Kevin Baird presented the "eulogy" and the group ended the service with a party. They drank Orange Crush soft drink . 1 and sang songs such as "Rocky Mountain High." "We wen crushed by the Crush," said Tim Beckett, Big Purpli president. The band raised money to buy food, clothes and toys fo eight to 10 underprivileged children. Suggestions were madn by local congregations of the Church of Christ of whicl children would benefit most from the program. 'After Thanksgiving, a collection can was passed severa different times and classes competed to see which one coulr collect the most money for the children. The band invitet the children to the Christmas party and provided activities tr entertain the students and the children. Movies and cartoon were shown, and band members kept the party lively witl skits, puppet shows and games. The Big Purple kept many traditions at the Christmas par ty. The day began at the Pancake House. Then the groul went to select the Christmas "bush." It was taken to thi band hall and decorated for the party. A traditional decoration was the "Frenching horn," an ole beat-up French horn decorated with lights and misletoe. Per formances were given by the freshman men, the junior bani members and a bottle band. The evening ended with devotional.
