Long Ranger: "Hit and run" or "Hit and still runs"?


I wanted to share this picture this morning. Someone ran over our Long Ranger with a car at the back of the field while we were in marching practice. The funny thing is that it still works! The metal casing saved the unit! I know I will need a new horn since the plastic was cracked. However, I was amazed that the brains of the unit survived. Please pass this on to your design guys!

I will send a second picture right after this email.
