  1. The Skyliners Drum & Bugle Corps' Open House this past Saturday was a tremendous success, and an exciting beginning for the corps' 2017 competitive season. Shane Startzel, Brass Caption Head, assisted by Joe Wilt, Assistant Brass Caption Head, led the brass instruction, supported by 2017 Brass Staff. After warm-ups, the horn line worked through the "Lost Boy" Ballad and the beginning of "Escape from Paradise" from The Skyliners' 2017 show "XSCAPE". Front and center was the inaugural use of B Flat System Blue brass by The Skyliners, which caused great excitement and anticipation. Brass Arranger John Meehan sent a special video greeting for Open House attendees. Percussion Caption Head Patsy Vankirk, Front Ensemble Coordinator Dr. Rick Wolfel, and the Percussion staff, led the Percussion through battery and front ensemble warm-ups. The talent level of the ensemble and the incredible interest will no doubt be a driving force for The Skyliners in 2017, and raise the bar even further than 2016. The Color Guard members in attendance were led by Brenda Peregrim, Color Guard Caption Head, James Branch, one of The Skyliners' Color Guard Designers and staff through stretching, movement, and flag and weapon work. At the end of the day, the guard members performed their routines for fellow corps members, giving the corps a taste of what to expect from this talented group of performers and designers. Jeff Crawford, Visual Caption Head and the 2017 Visual Staff introduced the Visual program to the attendees, working on ensemble and individual elements. A PT session introduced some of the exercises that members will focus on throughout the year, and a structure to an overall fitness program that will help develop and improve skills, fitness and endurance. The Skyliners thank everyone who attended today, everyone who helped set up, served lunch, cleaned up for the Open House, or helped in many ways to make it such a success.

  13. Congratulations to Gerard "Bob" Holton, President of the New York Skyliners Board of Directors, Skyliner Lifetime member, and Member of the World Drum Corps Hall of Fame - to name a few things - on being awarded the "Key to the City" of Bayonne, New Jersey. This was awarded to Bob for his lifetime of dedication to the youth of Bayonne, New Jersey, and for the thousands of men and women's lives who he altered. "He has been involved in molding the character of countless Bayonne youths through his selfless dedication for over 50 years. As an instructor and administrative officer of the Bayonne Bridgemen Drum & Bugle Corps, Bob helped instill the moral and ethical qualities necessary for them to launch their professional careers, and through his exemplary example set the template for family harmony and happiness." The proclamation was read on the floor of the Capital building by the Senator in Washington, DC and a flag in Bob's honor flew above the Capital building. Today's ceremony took place in Bayonne at City Hall. It was a great day!!! This is a well deserved award for Bob Carol Holton. Congratulations to Bob, Carol and the Holton family for their dedication to Bayonne youth and the New York Skyliners, too.
