Flag corps member Kristen Reis re- hearses before performing. During halftime of the Texas Tech- Baylor game, a flag corps member leads the flag section in formation. It was the homecoming game for the Raider football team. The heat is on ' Flags As Glenn Frey would say, " The heat is on. " And when the heat is on, you ' ve got to perform. Texas Tech flag corps mem- bers know what performing is all about as about 45 women try out for 28 to 32 flag corps positions. After learning fundamentals and a basic routine, potential flag corps members try out in front of the flag corps cap- , tains, flag teachers and the | band director. Flag captain Taney Baldwin said being a flag corps member is " fairly fast-paced — you have to be able to pick things up pretty quickly, " she said. Yet Baldwin said the actual flag techniques are not that difficult. " I wouldn ' t say it was hard, because we ' ve had twirlers try out who didn ' t know anything about flags and they made it, " she explained. " Then on the other hand, we ' ve had girls try out who did know something about flags and they didn ' t make it. " The corps performed at three out-of-town football games (A M. TCU and Rice) in addition to home perfor- mances. Flag corps members re- cruit while performing on out- of-town trips. Baldwin said that during the trips, the mem- bers perform on Friday nights at high school football games. During football season, the flag corps practices five days a week with the band and once a week at night. — Camille Wheeler Flag girls lead the hand during the homecoming parade before the Texas Tech-Baylor football game. 128 — Flags

" We have all the sisterhood the so- cial sororities talk about, too, " said Cindy Banks. " We do a lot for the band, but beyond that it ' s fun and games and parties too. " TBS, consistently one of the nation ' s top 10 chapters, makes seat covers for Jones Stadium band seats and fur- nishes food and first aid kits for road trips. " The guys in KKY do most of the heavy stuff for the band, and we do more of the — I guess you ' d call it the girl-type stuff, " Banks said. TBS and KKY sponsor the annual fall Marching Festival for area high school bands. " We have to pay to use Jones Stadium, and then for the equipment to videotape and record every band, plus post- ers and putting those up and so on, so the Marching Festival is a pretty expensive project, but we always make a profit, " she said.
