  3. What it means was when we did our survey last August ( we do this ever year to get a handle of what corps we will have) of who would be coming back it wasn't promising. Only had 30 horns and 4 percussion and this on top of our practice site challenages of being bumped for a rental even though we had it booked. We have an old drum corps as in years withe corps. Many people have been in the corps 5 years or more so many were moving on. So with that it was presented to make this the last year and I'm happy to say we have over 70 horns and over 25 percussion and will be having our biggest corps since 2006. We will be doing 5 field shows this summer, highlighted with the final field performance in August at the DCI-Semi Finals in Indy. We will also be doing an exhibition at the Soundsport competition in Indy After August the organization will become a performing arts organization with many small ensembles like a Mini-Corps and maybe even a Soundsport. Types that you will need less people and less money. Hope this clears everything up as you will be able to see the Bridgemen many times before we ride off to the sunset.

  4. The Bridgemen will be putting out a mini corps this year!
  5. Bridgemen will be there, on next to last!
  6. Looking forward to a GREAT show this coming Saturday by all of the corps who by all accounts had GREAT off seasons. I don't know about a certain corps having lots of holes, because they are bringing 3 buses. I think this season for DCA 50th, is going to be one of the best ones yet.
  7. Leo, As of right now we have 3 competing corps, 3 Alumni corps (including us) and 1 junior corps in the show. We will be adding one more corps so its a mix of a show. A lot of people think if we added the competion part we would draw more of a crowd and since we already had 2 DCA competing in show we decided to do it while keeping some exhibition corps. See you there! George
  8. Yes this is the order of the show!
  9. Who did you write the letter to??? And Rocketman REALLY??????
