    Looking to buy a K20 Bell

    Nope - I own an Andalucia Bb ... I like that for my Bb needs (my once a year College Marching Band alumni parade). Just looking to replace a bell on a G Soprano
  2. Just looking to see if anyone has a K20 that would be for sale that could be used as parts. I am looking in particular for a K20 bell in good shape, and would like to find one that has a broken set of valve/lead pipe that the bell would be perfectly used as a spare part to be used in a project. I do not really want to destroy a perfect K20... but someone out there has to have one that is not playable, but the bell would be acceptable. If it all works perfectly, I could use a handful of bells to continue the process of this project. Thanks in advance!

    Switching from G to Bb/F instruments, what year?

    Correct - we are still playing our G bugles. Columbus Saints and Southern Knights are also on G's as well.
  4. Thanks for the shout out BigW - and thanks for bringing snacks and refreshments for the corps! We truly appreciate it (especially the Donald Duck OJ!) Hope to see you again this summer!
  5. The Erie Thunderbirds are at Millcreek, Warren, and Brockway ... all in Pennsylvania

    2017 Mini-corps lineup?

    I believe 2014 has 11 corps, which was a big growth from Annapolis in 13. That was exactly what we did - we knew it would be a good step in the right direction. In all seriousness, I can't wait for this event!

    WTB: DEG/Willson 4v Super Mag Contra

    We are still in the market for at least one more as well, and I really feel we have been lucky to find the ones we have. Good luck in your search Brad!

    First Time to Finals!

    Usually it is a mix of two sides :potato products (home fries/french fries), macaroni salad, baked beans (not my preference) with the meat of your choice covered it "Hot Sauce", onions, and mustard. You can skip the things you don't like.. but I thought it sounded gross until I actually had a chance to eat one.

    First Time to Finals!

    We typically go during I&E's before mini corps.

    First Time to Finals!

    Don't miss out on a garbage plate! I know our whole corps takes a trip to Nick Tahou's which is a small walk from I&E's.
  14. The heat was truly brutal, and I hope as well that all members are OK from Saturday. I think the 20 min delay came from the time blocks for the show only being 17 minutes, when trooping the stands, pits setting up etc are not included in the 17 minute block allowed by DCA to being on the field to start and crossing the endzone line at the end. I think we were only delayed a few minutes, and it just slowly added up as it went to the later corps with it being a larger show.

    Larry, you are 100% correct. We are playing on G Bugles.
