    Question About DCA Culture

    I was 45 the first year I marched with the Cabs (1992). Marching drum corps was also on my bucket list though I did march in St. Lucy's for one year in 1966. I remember calling Post 199 on a rehearsal night and the person answering the phone was Jim Costello. After a short conversation he said come on down to the next rehearsal we will find a place for you. I'm sure the staff at Reading would say the same to you -- come on down we'll find a place for you. I never felt out of place or not accepted by the much younger members. If anything it was my own feelings of being "older" that made me hesitant. I marched through the 2003 season have made many friends "much younger than myself" that still remain in my life. My advise to you Diddle is GO FOR IT!!! You never want to say to yourself I might have, I could have, I SHOULD HAVE!! --btw I've been with the Cabs Alumni since 2004 when I aged out of the competing corps at 57 LOL LOL
  2. So now that Allen Buell has announced that the Alumni Specular will move to a stage performance, What are your thoughts about this? It will remain on Sunday.
  3. Everyone will have to wait until next week. Same show just add Cincinnati to the mix.

    Standings as of now DCA

    What happened to White Sabers?? I know they have been scored twice.
  5. Great stadium, lot's of choices for dining, lot's more to do (sightseeing). With all things considered it has to be Annapolis. I do agree with Fran that the concerts at the NYS fairgrounds were a benefit for DCA in exposing drum corps to hopefully new fans.

    Williamsport

    No I didn't Florida. There final position is already known. It's a race for 2nd.

    Williamsport

    The scores for Williamsport are really interesting. Cabs 87.75 White Sabers 87.35 Fusion 87.25 Sky 75.60. The next few weeks will have all corps at full throttle. These three corps are so close to each other it will make for a real good weekend in Rochester. Now throw in C2, CV and The Kids.

    Showdown In Peckville, PA

    I have two questions that I'm sure someone can answer. #1 If the American Legion is co-sponsoring this show, will the winner be the American Legion National champs? #2 If the answer to #1 is yes, does the American Legion require the corps to have an honor guard? In advance - thanks
  10. I may be wrong but I believe the Sun sponsored show this weekend is in Pittsfield, MA and not Everett, MA.
  11. This is a good news post and hopefully we will also see the return of the Tournament of Stars to Bayonne. Congrats BPAO.
  12. Everyone else is curious about the same thing.

    George Hayek

    Every corps has members that have given there whole life to a corps and when they pass it's difficult. It's difficult to put into words what George Heyek was to the Caballeros. Yes he was a founding member in 1946 but to us who are older and in the alumni, he was truly a father figure at 90 years old and still marching. His knowledge of the corps history was unmatched. He was able to recall in detail shows and events from 60 years ago. His memory was impeccable. Rest in peace George. You will always be missed.
  14. Al, your post make me think back to the beginning of this past season. Al Katz (who rarely if ever post on here anymore) posted about the Cabs at the beach show. He said that they were having difficulty getting corps to commit to an early show because many corps shows were incomplete and they didn't want a low score because of an incomplete show. If you can't get corps to commit to a show because the show isn't finished, then penalties are a moot point. If you take it a step further, no corps, no show, no money and a shorter season. The Cabs at the beach show turned out to be a judges evaluation show without scores.
