Colts January Camp Continues As Planned

January 17, 2019

The Colts are set to host their January camp beginning Friday at the Five Flags Center in downtown Dubuque. There is some snow moving through the midwest on Friday, so please make the best decision for you depending on your path of travel. Your membership status in the drum corps will not be affected if you are unable to attend camp due to travel concerns. We have a large number of flights coming in so we will continue to have camp for those that have the ability to make the trip.

If you arrive in Dubuque earlier than 5:00 p.m. on Friday, you are free to stop at the Colts Warehouse, 2300 Twin Valley Dr., Dubuque, IA 52003. If you need to be dropped off at any point during the day, we will make sure you have transportation to Five Flags before the start of camp. If you would need to arrive before 9:00 a.m. on Friday, please contact Jason Schubert, Director of Operations and Media, at jason@colts.org or 630.666.7489 or Vicki MacFarlane, Colts Director, at colts@colts.org or 563.564.9016.

Dubuque is in the path to receive anywhere from 1 - 5 inches of snow on Friday late afternoon and evening depending on which weather service you turn to for information. The snow is said to be of the light, fluffy variety and winds could cause some drifting in areas. The outlook for Sunday travel from Dubuque is much better, although temperatures are expected to fall into the single digits. Please take the usual precautions for driving in winter weather by packing some extra food, water, and blankets in your vehicle. We will have plenty of jumper cables available if your car has trouble starting on Sunday. Please bring a hat and gloves, as frigid temperatures are anticipated about the time loading starts on Sunday afternoon — especially if you are in the pit. We will have extra gloves on site as well.

If you are scheduled to come to camp and and will be arriving late or have to cancel because of the weather, or for any other reason, please notify Jason Schubert, Director of Operations and Media, or Vicki MacFarlane, Colts Director, that your plans have changed.

We’re looking forward to an exciting weekend and a lot of growth for the drum corps!
