  10. The Rocketeers formed in 2011 with the goal of becoming a Mini Corps. The only options for competition at that time were SDCA and DCA Mini Corps at finals. We did an exhibition that year at DCA Atlanta and went to DCA Finals to compete as a brass ensemble. We focused on growing our core group. In 2013 we heard about SoundSport. After talking with John DeNovi at DCI we were invited to play exhibition at the DCI show in our own hometown. This was the biggest springboard The Rocketeers have had. DCI began including us in all of their Sound Sport marketing. We were getting contacted by people interested in our organization. We have now done 3 SoundSport shows, Have 3 on the schedule for this year and we continue to grow. Are there little things that could be done better? I am sure there are. The best thing is when we have an issue or problem Erik and John are willing to work with us to get to where we need to be. Sound Sport is a great starting point. I think it will help the growth of SDCA in areas where there is currently no SDCA presence. That is my .02.
  11. The Rocketeers are new on the scene. This will be our 5th season. Second in mini corps. It is the mini corps like Ghost Riders and Star United that have inspired us to want to work harder and do more. It does baffle me that most of the organizations DCA, DCI, SDCA don't really consider any corps as a member or affiliate member of some kind if they are not on their competition schedule for the year. Look how many different groups come to that are not on the field but are competing in I&E or mini corps. If the organizations were to offer some basic affiliate membership and list those corps on their websites that would help the activity as a whole. It may seem trivial but if you look at DCA for instance you see no member corps in Alabama. The Rocketeers are from Alabama but because we are not Open Class or Class A we basically don't exist. There is another new all-age corps forming in Birmingham. It would be helpful to them to be able to formally associate themselves as a DCA corps.
  12. The Rocketeers will be at DCA Finals as well as DCI SoundSport in Nashville, Atlanta and exhibition in Huntsville. Hope we get the opportunity to do an SDCA show soon. The Rocketeers are an 18+ mini corps from Huntsville, Alabama. We rehearse Sunday afternoons twice a month in Madison. Alabama. Current openings for soprano, mellophone and percussion.

  13. It's just what it says. The South is getting hotter! Look at the drum corps activity brewing in Florida and Alabama. Add that to the anchors in Atlanta. Expand a little more into Virginia, the Carolinas, Tennessee, Louisiana and Texas. Wow there is a lot of stuff going on. I am sure I missed some.
