Bridgemen 1977

Recommended Posts

The Bridgemen's defense was as follows:

     The overage member never marched a contest as a 22-year old. He would turn 22 while on tour and the Bridgemen had a spare with them on tour to take over the spot when the ageout turned 22. The problem was that DCI, at a rules congress had changed the eligibility rule. The rule in effect in 1977 said no 21-year old could march in any contest if he/she turned 22 at any time before the day of finals. The Bridgemen claimed not to aware of this rule change.

That's how I remember the rule. It affected me in '79.

the cavaliers did the prelim stuff to the muchachos-in 75.i was the horn instructor in 75 and we got a tympani member from the east coast that year that came with names and addresses of overage members and gave the info to don warren. all he had to do was contact the state they were born in for birth certificate info.

the "haters" that cost the bridgemen to get tossed wasn't us.

it was phantom regiment
