Color Guard Trophies (DCI)

Recommended Posts

In compiling thoughts for an article, I can easily find caption winners through historical recaps. Guard is harder, because "From the Pressbox" doesn't have all results. I STILL don't understand the "2.0" scoring of the 1970s --- more than one corps achieves that number, so I don't know who really won. Is there a place or a historian who can lead me down the right road?

Thx

 It wasn't until ( I believe ) 1993 that Guard had their own caption where you could compare Guard sections among the Corps. Perhaps there is another way to compare Guards prior to this, but if so, I'm not currently aware of it.  But someone else on here might know however. Also. the early years of DCI had a completely different scoring system that is fundamantally unlike in every respect the scoring system utilized today in DCI ( the early " Tick System " vs. today's " Build Up System " )

In the days of yore they did announce top guards but it wasn’t on the sheets. This topic has come up here before and several posters filled in the gaps, I’d suggest searching for it
