Most Successful Corps BY State

Recommended Posts

Remember that Spirit hailed from Alabama for ten years.  They could rate as best ever for two different states.

Edit:  The same might apply for the top Pennsylvania junior corps, whether you pick Cadets or Crossmen for that honor.

Oklahoma......Valiant Knights

 

Maybe have to include Black Gold for Oklahoma, since they did make DCI top 25 a couple of times.  

Also, the Enid Legionettes All-Girls were a very successful Oklahoma corps in the 50s and 60s.

Corps of the North was supposed to compete at the 1965 American Legion Nationals in Portland, but due to the powerful

earthquake that hit Alaska in March, 1965, they had to put their money and energy elsewhere at home.

"State of Maine":

(From my era):  The Andrews Sabers and Bath Buccaneers.

 I understand the Sabers made a trip to France in the early 1960's.
