In accordance with Policy 321 on Compliance Enforcement, Drum Corps International placed Pioneer Drum and Bugle Corps on suspension from all DCI activities effective Thursday, August 16, 2018.

The action comes in response to several issues of concern raised by Pioneer members and staff. DCI will conduct a comprehensive evaluation of Pioneer to determine the corps’ membership and participation status going forward.

DCI will address all issues with Pioneer leadership and lay out terms for possible reinstatement.
