If I'm not mistaken, the 67 DCA Prelims was the first time Sun had beaten Sky in its history ... the year prior (66 DCA) they outpointed Hawthorne for the first time ...

That sounds about right, Andy. 

Nice jump at Finals for Sky, though... 6th to 4th!!!

No Canucks at the 67 DCA in Bridgeport ... four in 68 when it moved to Rochester ...

"Great Memories":

Thanks for posting.   Hurricanes won the "Big One"  (As well as the Legion and Dream Championships), and did it in front of the "Home Town Crowd" in olde Bridgeport.      :guinesssmilie:

Did only 10 corps compete in prelims? If so, why?

Conn Yankees, Springfield Marksmen, Les Dips, Canadian Commanders, & Reilly Raiders all competed in various DCA contests that summer.

I would love to see Hurricanes improve next year. They were in fourth place just five years ago. I thought their jazzy tenth-place show two years ago was delightful.
