Unknown 1977 Show (same as above)

This is our attempt stitching two different photos of the same event together.  Not so good, but passable.

Same units as above but with the addition of the Seattle La Senorita “Sabers”.  The Lil’ Senoritas are the feeder to their big sisters the “Sabers”.

Great photo.  Read more about Seattle drill teams on the drill team page.
