DCI contest coordinator/tabulator Keith Higgins submitted this picture back in June. "This is Laura Higgins, a DCI event staff volunteer, in front of the Santa Clara Vanguard setting up for last year's championship finals. We had just found out a month earlier that we would be having a baby in March 2003. Little Lily will be about five months old when we all go to Orlando for championships this year. Laura and I have been working with the event staff since the 2000 season." Thanks Keith! Little 6-month-old Lily was a big hit at championships down in Orlando last week. Although we're not sure which corps is her favorite, we're confident she'll be a drum corps fanatic in a couple years. And DCI extends a hearty thank-you to all the volunteers who gave of their time last week.

E-mail your Forzato submissions -- and we will get to them all, in time -- to dave@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.
