Drumline warm-up side note:

Is the word “drumline warm ups” supposed to be one word or two? Originally, the correct spelling of the word uses a hyphen, as such “drumline warm-ups” was the most accepted spelling of the word. However, today most writers are skipping the hyphen as you’ll see throughout this page as the word is used by pushing the individual words together. So to answer the question, there is really no wrong way to spell it, although using two completely separate words seems to be out, “drumline warm ups.” Instead, both “drumline warm-ups” and “warmups” are interchangeable!
