  1. Corps Pond -ering

    Amazing - almost all of Hy's corps adopted them in 68 - he helped me tremendously in charting out PAL's parts that year - especially Hall of the Mountain King - wonderful arrangement
  2. Corps Pond -ering

    Tymps - 1968 - Boston, Bpt PAL, Skyliners are three that I know of
  3. Hmmm ... if you're going that far, why not try out the Pro Football HOF in Canton? :-)
  4. Also the breakout year for several "on the rise" corps as they moved up the ladder beating the guns ... Selden beat Garfield ... St. Lucy's topped Kevin's, Sac and Garfield ... Bpt PAL knocked off Boston and Garfield ... Vasella topped Sac, Garfield ... Boston topped Chicago, Sac and Garfield ... and a lot of GNYC corps scared the b'Jesus out of the "guns" they were chasing ... 64 - 66 were pivotal years in drum corps ... the great "equalizer" years ... what a great time to be in the activity ... :-)
  5. Well Elphie ... I must have been sitting next or near to you because that's where I watched most of the show from ... I remember the Yankee Rebels coming closet to the sideline ... was surprised with Reading's win ... it was a GREAT atmosphere in an "old style" HS Stadium ... similar to Longbrook Park for the Barnum and Hedges for the WO in 64 ... good memories ... too bad I can't remember who you are ... LOL ...
  6. 50 Years ago this weekend

    Yup ... after solid campaigns in 64, 65 and 66, the influx of CT Royal Lancers upon their demise was the piece of the puzzle Genero, Luedee, Condon and Woods needed ... really solidified all sections into Championship form ...

    No Canucks at the 67 DCA in Bridgeport ... four in 68 when it moved to Rochester ...
  9. 50 Years ago this weekend

    If I'm not mistaken, the 67 DCA Prelims was the first time Sun had beaten Sky in its history ... the year prior (66 DCA) they outpointed Hawthorne for the first time ... :-)

  11. Need some help ... I have Apple TV and links to Hulu and Netflix ... how do I get access to FloMarching through these channels? I signed up for a FloMarching account but, have no clue to see what's offered for the DCA weekend ... and I'm not going to spring for the $50 fee if I'm technically locked out from viewing it on a big screen TV ... Thanks for any input/instructions/guidance ... Andy "technically challenged" Lisko
  12. Highlights of Your DC Days

    I distinctly remember a photo that appeared in DCN where a Judge got caught in the middle of "the Box" as it collapsed, holding his clipboard high above his head ... a true classic!
  13. Cadets 2 out of the Everett Show ?

    My bad ... and my most humble apology ... I definitely got confused with all the show/no show activity in these threads ... hope everything works out for everyone ...
  14. Cadets 2 out of the Everett Show ?

    Hmmm ... Sun abandoned the show? ... I thought C2 was the culprit here ...
  15. So then, in my HOF, would be someone who you are familiar with from bygone days ... Chris Ruge, Jr. was Director of the Bpt PAL Cadets from 65-68 ... a WWII Veteran, who faced death, dug his own grave, and then was liberated by Gen. George Patton the night before he and his comrades-in-arms were to be executed ... fascinating ... returned home ... contributed to the 1946 baby boom, and became involved with D&B corps in the form of the Bridgeport Troopers (Bunny Hop and all) and this start-up Jr. corps sponsored by the Bpt PAL and the Harry Condon AL Post #11 (a place which itself could be enshrined in a DC HOF!) ... Chris started out the first several years as a Quartermaster, and like so many from that era, elevated up the ranks to the position of Director at the time the PAL was being recognized nationally ... his mantra with kids was simple ... 1) Treat kids like adults ... 2) When they start to act like adults, treat them like kids ... 3) Repeat #1 ... he always had the perfect sense of timing to reel in egos, let the horses out of the barn, let us learn from out mistakes ... and constantly prepare youth for the future ... Personally, he gave me a shot as a teenager to write and instruct the drum line along side of this horn guy named Hy Drietzer ... I am forever in his debt for the confidence he displayed and instilled in me ... Chris passed away far too early at the age of 56 ... I was with him a few nights before his death watching a heavyweight at the German Club ... his cigar smoking swagger fully intact ... treating me like a kid and adult all in the same breath ... His PAL corps won numerous State titles, made finals at the WO in 63,64,65 ... VFW Finals in 65 and 67 ... an invite to the CYO nats in 67 and 68 ... as well as Championships for the Yankee and Northeast Circuit ... a wonderful run for inner-city corps from 57-68 ... Hope this is what you had in mind ... and, you're right ... there many "Little People" (as Pepe used to call them) who deserve accolades for their contributions to the growth of Drum Corps youth ...
