  1. Five corps on the field who will be competing for the championship in around 80 days yet this was a "try out", amazing. Drum corps evidently has really changed
  2. Bridgeport CT as the hot bed of drum corps back in the 60's, just like Newark and central New Jersey areas And of course the Greater Boston area. If you wanted good competitive drum corps show every weekend, you had to be here.
  3. Connecticut aso had Norwalk Hot Shots and the Derby Cyclones.
  4. Miss when a corps would place in 1st one night and come in 5th the next day. More suspense with the scoring back then.
  5. St.Joseph's " Ironbound" Cadets, a section of Newark. Competed against them in 60's in Garden State Circuit.
  6. Who fielded the best NYC corps who was a possible contender or finalist in any major championships thru 62-68?
  7. Beat Mighty St. Joes how many time between 65- 68?
  8. Just heard from a friend the Barnum Festival is broke so there will be no show this year They need about $30,000 to keep it going. SO SAD.
  9. They were from Upper Saddle, NJ. Around in late 50's, early 60's. Participated in Garden State Circuit.
  10. Competed against them in early sixties in Garden State Circuit.
  11. First, I applaud you for keeping this topic alive. However, the Barnum Festival has not made any effort to promote this event, same as past years. This was their crown jewel in decades past, but Bridgeport was a major drum corps town back then. A packed stadium, whether Hedges or Kennedy, was the norm back then. NO advertising of this great event at the $5.00 for any seat in the house have I seen. The Barnum committee seems to be relying on word of mouth rather than taking real steps to promote this show. I hope I'm wrong, but if they aren't more pro-active expect the same 2,500 crowd estimate.
  12. Thats why the Cabs Alumni are the best in the business.
