Excelsior

Sunrisers

Marched in Wahconah Park 3 times in 1962. (Pittsfield Cavaliers and Pittsfield Monarchs shows. Then the Hudson-Berkshire Circuit Championships) For the two regular season shows. They did not take out the Pitchers Mound. They did for the H-B Championships. Be prepared. It is a Round Baseball Stadium. (we also had no yard lines every 5 yards. Just Start, 50, Finnish, and sides. Made it a little harder on us competing.

BUT, the people up there are very nice, and they Know Drum Corps very well. ENJOY !!!

(Asbury Park (N.J.) Hurricanes at that time for me)

Did the Suns move there from Jacksonville? That is what the Baseball team in Jacksonville was called when I moved to Florida. There stadium is right next to the Gator Bowl. The stadium was a V like deal. The VFW States were held there many times.

Oh well I hope all who attend the Pittsfield show ENJOY themselves. As I said already. Nice Place. Nice People and Good Corps make for a Great Time !!!

Wow... I didn't know the Marksmen were still around.

I remember seeing them (as an alumni corps) at the Harrisburg Forum indoor show a couple of times, 1990s-early 2000s or so..... but not since.

"Don't look at your feet; the ground will always be there." Yeah, that did not apply to this field or the old Scranton field! :)
