When you look at each corps history base your decision on what they did in the activity. Championships, etc.

I chose Ventures. I saw them when they were this little AG corps and they became Champions in AG and A class as well on a consistent basis, especially starting in the 80's.

Added some more but in my defense I was just being realistic. I could have added The Alpine Girls too

Voted for Ventures, because they were definitely the best in my decades in drum corps. I remember losing to them repeatedly over a couple of summers by DOZENS of points :tongue: .

Another one "missing" from the poll, and you could make an argument for them being the second-best, too - Arbella, from Salem, MA!

Based on longevity and success against the all-guy corps (in the 50's)...I voted for Audobon. Not to mention, I loved their uniforms!

:tongue:

I would have to say Norwood Debonnaires, during the mid sixties they were very good

I went with St. Ignatius. I feel a bit guilty about that because I've never actually seen a lot of the other corps, but they kicked our butts more times than I care to remember. The only caption we could ever beat them in was perc. Other than that they just steamrollered us. I also remember them being kind of tight with the St. Rita's Brassmen. I think it was because of the instructional staffs but I'm not sure. I remember the ND-ettes vividly and they were quite good in their own right, but I don't think that they could have touched St. Ignatius.

For me it was a toss-up between Jeanettes of Lynn, MA and Arabella of Salem, MA. The Jeanettes were definitely "old school" though I recall they turned a few heads with "Take a Walk on the Wild Side" (can't remember the year). They were tough competitors but from what I understand gracious ones too. Arabella were neighboring rivals and there were times their horn line could rival their coed competitors.
