Recognizing the organization's 50th anniversary and the very first DCI World Championships ever in California, the Blue Devils have scheduled special alumni events leading into and through Championship Week.

Alums can gather for cocktails, dinner and performances in Palo Alto, Calif. on Friday, Aug. 3 at the corps' 50-year Celebration Party. This will be followed by a Reunion Barbeque at Stanford University on Saturday, Aug. 4 just prior to the DCI West Championship major event which will feature some of this year's best drum corps in competition in addition to a massive tribute performance to honor the Blue Devils and Santa Clara Vanguard's anniversaries.

The Blue Devils Alumni and "A" Corps Breakfast on Thursday, August 9 will give alums the opportunity to eat from the corps' "Devil's Food" cook truck along with members of the current corps. Those attending will have the chance to meet the members of the 2007 Blue Devils and check out their rehearsal that day.

The corps' 50th Anniversary Alumni Celebration will be on Friday, Aug. 10 before the DCI World Championship Semifinals. This event will give Blue Devil alums the chance to gather together on Rose Bowl Stadium property with some "special guests" expected to attend.
