  11. Gotta agree with Tim. 27 winning 1980 DCI East was unreal and I was there. Won't ever forget it!
  12. 1979 Troopers at Birmingham prelims. Dave Richards judge's tape says it all. Honorable mention - 1988 and 1995 Scouts at Finals just for sheer excitement.
  13. Brian, I always love your posts. I have some questions you probably can answer about Crossmen history in 70-80s. Could you message me back when you have time? Scott Myers, Hanover PA - hammerrd7@gmail.com. Thanks!
