  1. Tom Brown did a great job with his story about the Carver Gay Blades. In it he mentioned that they lasted until the mid 60s. I can state (because my corps, the Polish Falcons marched backed-to-back with Carver at rehearsals in the Elizabeth, NJ Armory) that Carver lasted into the late 60s. John Tucker their business manager was terrific and he taught them M&M. Also, Hugo Evarelli, who taught Carver, the Cambridge Cabs, etc. also taught the Falcons, as did drum instructor Frank Luke. Wonderful memories; thanks, much for this (now old) story, Tom Brown!!
  2. Sounds good but well-heeled DCI (not DCA) would have to take over this role, but what would be in it for DCI? Back when Gail Royer was running SCV and Jim Jones was running the Troopers, DCI took a pass on absorbing DCA. That would have been a much better time for this IMO.
  3. Maybe the Inspires will make a return trip from Japan.
  4. Maybe DCA and DCI should jointly create and support a regional program (with regional travel and music education for all corps in the region) for modest-sized corps. DCI and DCA could promote the shows and offer marching / music workshops for all the corps in the region with the goal of improving existing corps and growing some new ones.
