“The Mad Plaid” Announces Plans For 2010
The Kilties will hold their annual Orientation/Evaluation/Membership Day on Sunday December 6, 2009 from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM at Gilmore Middle School in Racine, Wisconsin.
This special day will consist of full corps and section orientations, skill and talent evaluations, and rehearsals. A meal will be provided by the corps.
The 2010 edition of The Kilties will be dedicating this coming season to honor and celebrate the founding of the corps’ roots 75 years ago.

All of the corps’ camps are guided with strict time management to accomplish the goals placed to the membership and the organization as a whole.
