DCI Kalamazoo Moves To Battle Creek

“While we are surprised and disappointed in the timing and the circumstances involved with WMU’s decision, we are thrilled with the enthusiastic reception we have received by the school administration in Battle Creek,” said DCI executive director Dan Acheson. “We think you will find the stadium a great venue to see and hear drum corps.”
