  3. The Bushwackers and Sunrisers Drum & Bugle Corps need your help as they “Race to Rochester” For over 34 years, these two storied Drum Corps have battled it out on the field. Both Corps have won six World Championships. Both Corps have hard working, passionate, and dedicated members whose blood sweat and tears bleed their Corps colors. Both Corps have spent countless weekends entertaining thousands while representing their proud Alumni who once battled themselves under the August sun. As both Corps enter the week of the 2015 DCA World Championships, the RACE IS ON to ROCHESTER! Beginning on Monday August 31st through Friday September 4th, the Bushwackers Drum & Bugle Corps and the Sunrisers Drum & Bugle Corps will be waging a different battle off the field. In this head-to-head fundraising challenge, both Corps are calling on all Alumni, Family, Friends, and Supporters to see who will raise the most money. “This is a great opportunity to take a freshly renewed rivalry off the field and straight to the fans” said Bushwackers Corps Director Bob Glover. “Both Corps have made great strides over the past couple of years, and this is a chance to see who has the best fans and supporters in DCA. Whoever comes out on top, it’s the members of the Corps who win in the end. Sorry Sun, but that dust you see in front of you is magenta and blue!” Due to the required hotel and travel costs skyrocketing in 2015, both the Bushwackers and Sunrisers will be using all donations to offset their travel and housing costs as the head to the DCA World Championships in Rochester, NY this coming weekend. Both organizations are non-profit 501©(3) charitable organizations and can provide tax-deductible documentation for all donations received. “The Sunrisers and Bushwackers have been fierce competitors since the early 1980’s.” said Sunrisers Assistant Director/Business Manager David Hobart. “While both Corps share the same mission and goals on and off the field, I am certain the Sunrisers have the advantage when it comes to fan and alumni support. I know that the Sun will be rising in Princeton all week long…and I would advise them to never look directly into the Sun!” Please visit the following to support your Corps. Make sure to watch the Twitter and Facebook pages for both corps as there will be Daily updates.

And we have quite a few people that travel up from Maryland so you will be able to car pool as well. Please check out our Open House page which will give you a good intro to what the corps is all about at:

  8. Looking forward to this great event coming up this Sunday. Stop on by and join in the fun!
  9. We don’t think a proper debate can occur on a public forum such as this, and therefore will respectfully not affirm or deny any allegations made by the creditor or others on DCP. That is for the lawyers and courts, or at least a discussion elsewhere. The point of this thread is that a 30-year old corps needs help and is asking the public for the first time in its history. Many have already stepped in and offered what they could, and we are hoping that others follow suit. What we ask is that this thread stay on course with its original intent of asking people for donations. The more people donate, the more it helps save the corps, and the quicker it gets the creditor paid.
  10. The cost of DCA championships is paid directly by the members and separate from the normal tuition - ie. hotel, bus, and food costs. This is how it is for most DCA corps and is different than the DCI model. By not going to DCA champs, the corps would be in exactly the same financial position it is in now. This situation was caused by the creditor demanding the entire balance be paid back now rather than working towards a payment plan over time that would fit with what the corps could afford.
  11. I hope the DCP moderators will allow this post here. Although the Bushwackers are not a DCI corps, they are still a drum corps, and in a situation like this, the financial world makes no differentiation between divisions. How many stories have we read after a drum corps went down and said to ourselves - "If I knew about this earlier, I could have helped"? Well here is your chance to be part of the solution and save this corps before it's too late!! *** Please help with whatever you can - no amount is too small ***
