Iowa State Cyclones Marching Band T-Shirt from 2000

On January 1, 2000, the ISU Marching Band marched in the London Millennium 
Parade (in London, England, of course).  Some ISU Alumni Band members were invited 
to march in this London parade along with the Iowa State University Varsity Marching Band
The Alumni took part in order to fill the empty spots caused by the few University 
students who were unable to make the trip.

All, even the London residents, enjoyed ISU's participation in the parade. 
The Iowa State band members enjoyed not only the parade, but the entire trip, 
even though they could not ride the London Eye.  This Largest Ferris Wheel in Europe 
(located South of the Thames River, and today riden by 3.5 million per year) 
was scheduled to be dedicated and open on that December 31.  However technical 
problems delayed its use by the public until March of 2000, when the ISU Marching 
Band was long gone.  "Hey! We're not staying here until it's working, are we? 
We'd miss the second semester if we did that!" 

T-shirt from the Iowa State Cyclones Insight.Com Bowl of 2000

When ISU played Pittsburg in the 2000 INSIGHT.COM BOWL game, 
the ISU Marching Band accompanied the football team and ISU fans 
to Phoenix, Arizona to perform during the game.  ISU won the bowl game, 37-29.
