Gulf Coast Sound Announces Dues-Free Membership For 2011
The Gulf Coast Sound Drum and Bugle Corps of Houston, Texas, is pleased to announce that membership for 2011 will be dues-free. As a result of its partnership with Lone Star College-North Harris and a series of operational improvements that include additional revenue streams, GCS will be able to support its operations while enhancing the quality of its performance capabilities under the dues-free plan. This will also be accomplished without a significant shift of financial burden to the personal costs of its members.
GCS Director Corey Mark comments, “Our operational model addresses the continuing challenge of retaining current and prospective members experiencing financial hardships during the current economic climate. It is our continuing belief that drum corps must remain an accessible and rewarding pastime for all who wish to participate.”
