need more pictures for all years!
I was in Spirit for almost 5 years. It's one of the few events that had helped me through those "teenage" years. I learned how to sell chocolate bars door to door, twirl a flag/rifle/saber, and change outfits during a field show within a few seconds. These were just a few things that I could always use later in life.
Seriously, being in Spirit opened my eyes to the outside world. It has helped me learn to deal with various different types of people and see cool places (Wyoming, Utah!)
I finally decided to put together this site to bring together the few hundred people Spirit has touched. It's neat to know what happened to us all. What we've accomplished, what we did after Spirit. How much do we miss this band (I know I do).
As most of you know, Spirit is no longer around. The members who were in it during the 80's were lucky because that was the peak of perfection. When all our hard work paid off and we kicked Santa Ana's butts (that was to biggest turning point in Spirits history)!! Since I wasn't in it after the 80's, I really don't know what happened. I know that Mr. Hawkins left, Bingo folded, and Spirit was just never the same.
There are now tons of pictures from several people and myself. Thank you so much for sharing your pictures with us!
If you would like your story (or stories) and/or pictures posted, e-mail them to me. If you would like to send it via snail mail, e-mail me for my address.
