This summer we called on drum corps fans to "spread the word" about drum corps to the uninitiated - invited longtime fans to become marching music evangelists. Bobbie Allen sent in this one. "This is picture is of the "girls of the crew" at Indianapolis in the lot. We spent all summer chasing "our UK drummer boys," a.k.a. Brian Archinal (Cavaliers, snare), Brad Meyer (Cadets, pit), and Charlie Olvera (Bluecoats, pit). Because I was the only one with any knowledge of drum corps, I definitely had my work cut out for me with these girls. The road trips were amazing! From left to right: Becca Johnson, Michelle Freytag, Jackie Dunsieth and me. Thanks so much!"
We realize the summer is over, but if you brought a "new" drum corps friend to a DCI show this past summer, send us a pic and we'll acknowledge you! But then this winter, you've got to promise to keep those drum corps passions burning, and inspire your new converts to bring friends to DCI shows next summer!
