Are any of you drum corps fans or alumni? The 2018 season is close and I'm looking forward to it

I had a roommate in college who took me to a couple umptyump years ago. Kind of cool, and if I didn't have to go far, I'd go for awhile.

Good to know. It's rare to meet people who know anything about the activity. I'll be at about seven events this summer

I would guess you have a favorite corps or performance by your choice of handle. Longtime fan of the activity. Been to 25 championships.

Wow! 25 championships is pretty impressive. I wondered if anyone would catch the Santa Clara Vanguard reference in my username. I marched a corps from Michigan early 80s who were in class A finals twice. I have trouble picking out a favorite corps. In general I follow Cavies and Phantom and love most anything Vanguard does. I truly miss the g bugle sound of yesteryear.
