DCA Bi-Annual Rules Congress Adds Seminars
DCA President, Gil Silva, has announced that the Bi-Annual Rules Congress for DCA will be held December 13th and 14th at the George Eastman House Museum in Rochester, NY. This magnificent facility is one of the major tourist stops in New York State. (http://www.eastmanhouse.org) All DCA corps directors have already received the information detailing how to propose rules changes for the 2009/2010 seasons. New this year, President Silva has advised that there will be several seminars to create an information highway among all corps. While staff members work on rules changes, corps directors and managers will be able to attend a variety of seminars dealing with all aspects of running a competitive drum corps in 2009. Details of the seminars will be available following the DCA Executive Board meeting later this month.
President Silva has opened these seminars to all corps. Any corps director, whose corps is planning on competing in 2009 in the DCA arena, is encouraged to attend. This will be an excellent opportunity to open lines of discussion, meet the management of both the other corps and DCA, receive valuable information from some of the best and most experienced leaders in the activity and find out exactly what is expected from competing corps in 2009. This will be especially beneficial to new corps taking the field for the first time this coming season. If you would like to attend these seminars and have not already received the information, please contact Glen Johnson at secretary [at] dcacorps [dot] org and he will send you details and hotel information. Watch for information in the coming weeks about seminar registration. Book transportation early and save those last minute price penalties.
