Recently we called on drum corps fans to "spread the word" about drum corps to the uninitiated -- the news story HERE invited longtime fans to become marching music evangelists. Craig Blume took a student of his, Krishanna Baker, to her first show in Kalamazoo on July 17. "She had a blast and hopes to be in a corps in a few years," Blume said. Baker attends Pioneer High School in Royal Center, Ind. Thanks Craig! We're asking each of you to reach out and spread the word about the drum corps activity. Knock on doors, e-mail, instant message, even yell if you have to -- but this is the summer for you to bring a friend to a DCI show. Bring a digital camera to the show and take a picture with your new drum corps convert at the show, and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org -- we'll post pics as they come in under the headline, "New convert." Great seats are still available at most DCI shows. Pick up the phone, make your pitch, and we'll see you on the 50.
