With drum corps traveling tens of thousands of miles every summer, competing groups utilize a wide variety of vehicles in their fleets to get their teams of corps members, instructors, support staff and volunteers down the road. In today’s Field Pass presented by Zildjian, Dan Potter gets a tour aboard the Bluecoats’ sleeper coach, affectionately named the “Ghost Pig.” Plus, Dan checks in with motivational speaker Fran Kick, who is giving students the opportunity to get down on the field at select DCI Tour events this summer to put leadership into action.
