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. Jim Johnson, a Colts alum, sent in this pic. "Here is a picture from the July 14 Charleston, Ill., show. Pictured are longtime Colts volunteer and fan Barry Magee of Ellettsville, Ind., with two "newbies" -- son Jacob and colleague Micaela Wood of Bloomington, Ind. Although it was Jacob's first corps show, he had been to the DCI Classic Countdown in April." Thanks Jim! 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 -- 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.
