Beatrix Sponsor Spotlight

| |

In this series we will put our sponsors in the spotlight. Without these sponsors Beatrix’ would not exist in the way we do it now. This first sponsor in the spotlight is a very special one, an alumnus and honorary member of our organization: Ton Stam

During his membership with Beatrix’ he was already orientating abroad and he was the first Dutchman to march with an American drumcorps. In 1979 and 1980 Ton marched with Beatrix’ and 1980 he also marched The Boston Crusaders. He enjoyed this so much that he decided to march again in 1981 and 1982, this time with Madison Drum & Bugle Corps from Madison, Wisconsin. When he came back in 1982 he returned to Beatrix’ and started teaching which he did until 1988.
