Jacky Vrancken traveled all the way from Ostend, Belgium, to watch Division I action. Decked out in a festive jester hat (advertising the Belgium beer Jupiler) and matching lei, Vrancken was easy to spot amongst the big crowd this afternoon. Vrancken's son, Bruce, plays in the pit orchestra for the Blue Devils. He will be aging out this year."I really enjoy it!" Vrancken said of his appreciation for the drum corps activity. Vrancken raveled here with four other Belgians. He first witnessed a drum corps championship in 1997 in Orlando, Fla.
