Drum Corps International, the world leader in producing and sanctioning competitive events for the world's most elite marching music ensembles, is pleased to announce the addition of Rubbermaid to its growing list of valued partners. Rubbermaid joins the Drum Corps International family as the official supplier of insolated home products including personal water coolers and 10 gallon water jugs. Rubbermaid's line of half gallon, one gallon, and two gallon personal water jugs measure up to the exacting standards of today's top drum and bugle corps members with durable construction, leak-resistant lids and spouts, urethane-based foam for superior thermal retention, stain and odor resistance, easy-to-clean liner, and swing-top handle for easy carrying.

Rubbermaid's 10 gallon jugs come with all these great features in a large capacity container and are ideal for use in a corps' mobile kitchen, on the practice field for water breaks, or wherever refreshments are needed. Starting this summer, Drum Corps International will utilize Rubbermaid's 10 gallon model as part of water stations and cool down areas for corps members as they come off the competition field at major events. These stations sponsored by Rubbermaid were present in Murfreesboro, Atlanta, San Antonio, Indianapolis, and will also be in Phoenix and at the 2007 World Championships in Pasadena.
