Questions about the hat

by Drum Corps International

Scott Burka, a Bluecoats 2003 contra age-out, sent in this one. "This is a picture of my contra section leader and co-horn sergeant Kurt (left) and me (right) after the practice before the MTSU show (my home show). He wore that hat all summer and it gave him a crazy sunburn on his (bald) head. There was one time up in the Northeast where this little chubby kid, who was no older than 7 or 8, walked over to our practice site and watched our contra music sectional. He kept asking us dumb questions and eventually he asked Kurt about his hat. Chubby Kid: "Are those BEER caps on your hat?"
Kurt: "Yes ... yes they are."
Chubby Kid: "You must drink A LOT of beer!"" Thanks Scott! We're running out! Send us more of your Forzato submissions!
E-mail your Forzato submissions -- and we will get to them all, in time (and we're posting them in the order they were received) -- to content@dci.org along with where and when the photo was taken. Send some biographical information about yourself as well. We'll give you full credit. Also, let us know if you want your e-mail address included, to get feedback from other drum corps fans.
