Today features three events in the east, midwest and southern part of the country. However, this season will not have any touring restrictions so there are sure to be some interesting matchups.
Gettysburg PA was once the sight of the most famous battle of the Civil War, and today that battleground will be bursting at the seams as more than 20 corps venture to Shirk Stadium.
In the midwest, Menomonie WI's Williams Stadium makes a long-overdue return to the calendar as this northwest Wisconsin venue again opens its gates to competition.
And deep in the heart of TX, Round Rock's Kelly Reeves Athletic Complex hosts a rare early-season event for both southern and western-based corps.

Today's shows are also the first Sweepstakes events of the season. We use these events to keep a running total for the "Most Consistent Corps" in each division, which is a separate award given out at the end of the season.
Southern corps move to "Big D" for a big event at UT-Arlington's Maverick Stadium:
The cavalcade of eastern corps moves to Chocolate City USA to compete at Hersheypark Stadium:
And Midwest corps head to the land of frost and snow in Stillwater MN for their contest at Stillwater HS:
