On January 23, the voting membership of Drum Corps International gathered in Indianapolis to discuss several rules proposals. Among them was one to extend the age eligibility of corps members. Read this proposal as submitted (PDF). Currently, anyone may march in a DCI corps provided he/she doesn't turn 22 years old prior to June 1 of the calendar year. Under this proposal, members would be allowed to march provided they don't turn 23 prior to January 1 of the year in question, effectively adding five months of eligibility to the membership pool. The following video is an inside look at the discussion that took place within the board room on this proposal.
