A week or so to go.

Last year's top two DCA corps... an up-and-coming DCA corps... two entertaining alumni corps... and a fife and drum corps for a nice change of pace.

Plus a wonderful venue.  And a turkey dinner.:thumbup:

And an emcee who pronounces names correctly once in a while. :tongue:

Hope to see you in Elverson on May 13th!!!

As always, it was a good night at Twin Valley High School!!!

Miserable weather outdoors all day... it forced all the corps to stay inside.  But everyone made the best of the situation.  

From me, a big "thank you" to Bill Powers, Tom Moore, and Rick Thomson for all their help!!! They certainly make my job easier.... always fun working with these guys!!!
