Retreat in Traditional Uniforms

Recommended Posts

Why not? With the evolution of shows in the future going towards costumes, etc. I think it be awesome to see corps coming out to the retreat in their traditional uniforms. Would be such a salute to each corps' tradition and history. Heck corps could use those uniforms for a parade and other noncompetitive DCI events, so the expense could be justified. Any thoughts?

An idea way too logical for consideration.

I think it's a cool idea. It'll never happen/

They did in 2016. It didn't seem to get as much reaction from fans and that alumni suite as I might have expected. Still a cool thing.

I presume an appearance in green and aussies by Madison would be a cool thing to witness.

Why pretend to be what you're not?

That's the thing: these "are" the corps now. They are their theme-forward show designs. (Not that I think the theme of any drum corps show could ever be good enough to base your entire corps uniform on, but I digress.)

Most corps would probably cite a lack of storage space for retreat uniforms AND their figure skating apparel.

Vanguard better have their aussies, that's all I'm saying. An SCV retreat with a bunch of bright eyes looking up at the crowd is borderline sacrilegious.
