After nine shows and nearly a month on the road, the Crossmen have been busy. When rehearsal days come around, it's an important time for the corps to settle in and work to better the performance. Today and tomorrow, the members are in Marshalltown, Iowa, rehearsing before the next string of competitive shows.
